Design of a Decade

by C California Style

Lifelong Angelenos Kate and Laura Mulleavy could never be accused of complacency.

As the masterminds behind Rodarte, the designers are constantly exploring novel themes for their must-see runway collections as well as mediums (they’ve designed costumes for the Los Angeles Philharmonic and been the subject of museum exhibitions). Given the brand’s prevalence in discerning circles, it’s somewhat shocking that their first runway presentation was just 10 years ago to the month. There’s no sign of losing momentum—next up: their film directorial debut, Woodshock, a closely guarded project based on their own screenplay and starring friend and muse Kirsten Dunst. rodarte.net. • Kathryn Romeyn.
