Just Look, Don’t Wear: Rodarte at Cooper-Hewitt

You may know February as The Month of Love, Black History Month, or even The Coldest Month of the year, but for fashion fans everywhere, February means one thing: Fall Fashion Week!  Editors and tastemakers from all over the world descend upon New York City (as well as Paris, Milan, London, and a few other cities) to look at next fall’s fashion offerings.  The shows and presentations this week will determine next season’s trends, and buyers from retail stores worldwide will be choosing what to stock for fall.

Although several of my favorite designers show their collections in New York, there is one dynamic duo that is getting major attention this season.  Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte are known for their fearlessly creative, otherworldly designs.  Though most people are unable to get into fashion week shows uninvited, anyone who’s interested can get a glimpse of Rodarte designs from now until March 14th at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum.

The brand new installation, titled Quicktake: Rodarte is dedicated to the designers’ inspiration and processes.  On view at the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum from February 11 to March 14, 2010.  Admission is $15, free with a valid CUID.
