Rodarte's 2007 trunk show at Nieman Marcus. For me it was more like an art exhibit than designer event.

My first glimpse of Rodarte was at Nieman Marcus in San Francisco a couple years back. I was stunned and of course my first reaction was, Good gosh these would make awesome bridal frocks. Sister act Kate and Laura Muleavy premiered their line of gossamer gowns and dresses in Fall 2005, christening it 'Rodarte', their mother's maiden name. Since the day I saw their gowns at Nieman's the line seems to have made a transition from flowing, muted pastels and earth tones to bolder applications--though I love these too--check them out on the Rodarte website.
