Since Californian sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy showcased their first complete runway collection at the September 2005 New York Fashion Week, the Rodarte label (their mother's maiden name) has made a splash in the fashion world. Adored worldwide by fashionistas and celebrities alike, Rodarte has won numerous accolades and is known for an avant-garde, deeply creative style. 'We want to create collections that are beautiful,' Laura has said, 'wearability is subjective.' Our enchanting collection of dresses by Rodarte takes its inspiration from fantasy and vintage techniques of dressmaking. Dark, psychedelic prints juxtapose crushed velvet and intricately paneled gowns that seem to step from the pages of a fairy-tale. Floral layers of chiffon and tulle give a summery feel, while sheer panels recall a wire-framed dressmaker's mannequin. For a truly exceptional piece of contemporary, avant-garde design, invest in a dress by Rodarte.
