For designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the Rodarte Fall 2014 RTW fashions were all about drumming up childhood nostalgia. As Laura describes, Rodarte’s latest garments are “things that you would imagine you want to wear when you were younger.”

There were plenty of silhouettes that were throwbacks to the 80s, but the real delight came at the show’s finale, with five dresses printed with Star Wars motifs, including the twin Tatooine Suns, the Death Star, Yoda, C3PO and Luke Skywalker.

As much as these Rodarte looks are a fun blast from the past, they also offer a glimpse into the future too, since the new Episode VII Star Wars film is set for release in 2015. Stats for Galactic Sci-Fi Fashions Trending: This Year & Buzzing
