Autumn/Winter 2007

An award winning label founded and run by sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy, Rodarte is known for its blend of high couture, modern femininity and California cool.

The design duo’s 2007 collection for Atelier Swarovski epitomizes their contemporary approach to glamour with shimmering necklaces reminiscent of court jewels from a bygone era. Crystal beads in shades of rich emerald green and the purest white are interspersed on long ropes with smaller golden spheres, themselves set with tiny crystals. Available in long or short styles, these statement pieces will light up an entire outfit, as they did when they accompanied Rodarte’s collection down the runway.

Fresh out of university, Kate and Laura achieved the remarkable feat of founding an internationally recognized fashion house from their childhood home in Pasadena. From small beginnings—their first collection was made up of only ten hand-finished pieces—the label has quickly grown to be sold around the world. Winner of many prestigious awards including the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation Award in 2005 and the CFDA Swarovski Emerging Womenswear Designer Award in 2008, Rodarte has achieved acclaim from both industry insiders and famous faces.
