Top fashion critics heap praise on Pasadena-born Rodarte following New York Fashion Week showing
The New York Times Style Magazine-run blog The Moment
is keeping an unofficial-official Scorecard
for New York Fashion Week, and like we said in our previous post
on Pasadena’s (most ever?) dynamic fashion duo, Rodarte
is sweeping up accolades for its Tuesday showing.
“Tuesday’s shows provided an object lesson in how to play the Scorecard rankings game. Here’s a tip: avoid showing on the same day as wool cobweb-cheesecloth-macram creating, CFDA Women’s Wear Designer of the Year award-winning duos. If you don’t, even the finest djellaba draping can come across as, well, a little merchy.”
Check out the round-up of praise collected for Pasadena-native sisters Laura and Kate Mulleavy — the heavy hitters behind Rodarte.
