Rodarte: States of Matter

Rodarte has been surprising us collection after collection and their fame has only escalated after the Black Swan project. What surprised me though was that Rodarte’s designs are featured in a solo exhibition on show now at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. Such accomplishment for a young label!

Rodarte: States of Matter presents recent work in fashion and costume design by Kate and Laura Mulleavy. Garments are portrayed as charged sculptural objects. Works on display include pieces from Fall 2008, Spring 2010 and Fall 2010 runway collections, as well as the original ballet costumes for the film Black Swan. Launched in 2005, Rodarte has already won multiple awards including the 2009 CFDA Womenswear Designer of the Year award.

Some installation shots:

The exhibition is on show from 4th March to 5th June at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles
