Quicktake: Rodarte opens February 11, 2010 on view through March 14, 2010 Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum
"Rodarte's creations feature complex manipulation of materials and other meticulous techniques evocative of haute couture through an American lens. The Mulleavys deliver emotionally powerful, dynamic collections that interweave extremely hard and delicate elements simultaneously. Recent runway collections have referenced disparate themes, such as the building and taking apart of homes, California Condors, Boris Karloff as Frankenstein, land art and Japanese horror films." via C.
