Weekend Inspiration #1

I often get comparisons to Rodarte in regards to my knitwear.  I had the chance to see the Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum last week, where the tattered lace-y knit creations of Rodarte were on display.  It was only then I realized the similarities in the design aesthetic, although I am certain our approaches and intentions varied.  However, the exhibition got me thinking about how the designers of Rodarte approach clothing and the process of creation. 

I have long been an admirer of Rodarte long before I started trying my hand at knitwear.  There is always something quite inspiring about Kate and Laura Mulleavy's approach to design.  Like many creators, I find the line between design and art is often blurred together, but the "design" aspect of work often forces us to find a marketability element in our creations.  I have never shopped for Rodarte clothes; instead I have always looked at their work and admired the designers more as artists. 

This Vogue interview with the Mulleavy sisters provides insight to their love of creation and art, how fashion design can transcend raw human emotions, art, the past and the future.
