Starting next month, Washington, D.C. is going to host a new Rodarte exhibition, devoted to an American brand of clothing and accessories run by two siblings, Kate and Laura Mulleavy.
The first solo show, curated by Jill D’Alessandro, will feature 100 full looks from the selected collections of the designer duo, whose brand is named after their mother. They will be on display at Washington D.C.’s National Museum of Women in the Arts from November 10 to February 10.
The two Los Angeles-based sisters incorporate a range of creative disciplines in their collection, drawing from film, literature, and art history in their technique-driven process. Through their collection, the designers evoke questions about womanhood and the larger humanity from references to different fields in their work.
The show is designed by architect Rafael de Cardenas of Architecture At Large. Invisible mounts have been set up at the show space lending a floating, immersive experience to the clothes on display.
