Today the exhibition Rodarte: States of Matter organized by MoCA Associate Curator Rebecca Morse opened to the public. The exhibition includes over 20 designs from the label’s various collections as well as the gorgeous ballet tutus conceived for the feature film, Black Swan. Since launching their label Rodarte in 2005, sisters Laura and Kate Mulleavy have designed collections that elegantly merges fashion with fine art. Further intermingling art and fashion, Alexandre de Betak (best known for his elaborate runway show sets) was enlisted to help add a little drama to the installation.
Rodarte: States of Matter is the sisters’ first solo exhibition on the West Coast and runs from March 4, 2011 – June 5, 2011 at the MoCA’s Pacific Design Center.
