Rodarte: States of Matter


Opening this Friday at Los Angeles’ Museum of Contemporary Art, Rodarte: States of Matter showcases a variety of designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy’s recent work.
Over 20 of the Mulleavy’s creations will be on display; pieces range from ballet costumes that the duo created for Black Swan, to looks from Rodarte’s Spring 2010, Fall 2010, and Fall 2008 runway collections. The fusion of art and fashion is one of the show’s major themes, and the installation portrays the garments shown as “sculptural objects.” Alexandre de Betak, who’s best known for creating elaborate runway sets, helped with the installation’s design.

Rodarte: States of Matter runs through June 5, 2011.
