California natives Kate and Laura Mulleavy founded Rodarte in 2004. The first collection, consisting of only ten pieces, was a critical success garnering support from top editors and retail buyers who recognized the duo for their meticulous attention to detail and couture-esque quality of their designs. Since its inception, Rodarte has won a slew of awards including the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation award in 2006, and the CFDA Womenswear Designer of the Year award in 2009.
"We want to create collections that are beautiful. Wearability is subjective."
