75 Ravishing Rodarte Designs

From Melting Heels to Painted Fashion

— November 8, 2011 — Fashion
Kate and Laura Mulleavy are the sister duo behind Rodarte, an American brand that was founded only six years ago, in 2005. Since its beginnings, Rodarte has been blowing people away.

After the brand's very first collection, which only featured ten pieces, they were featured on the cover of the prestigious fashion industry trade journal, Women's Wear Daily. Immediately following the success of their debut collection, Kate and Laura Mulleavy had a meeting with Vogue US editor, Anna Wintour.

These days, over 40 of the world's biggest retailers carry Rodarte items such as Barneys NYC, Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman.
