NYFW-Rodarte-SS12.jpg

For Spring 2012 the Mulleavy sisters turned to the famous works of Van Gogh for Rodarte. Starry night and sunflower prints reminded you of some of the artist's most iconic paintings. The art theme filtered down into art smocks and brush strokes in off-the-shoulder dresses, folded skirts, drop waists, Fifties-style prom dresses and shimmery gowns. A mish-mash of textures, prints and fabrics made this one of the most intriguing collections of the week to date only minus the scary Chucky-like make up. Some of the A-listers to hit the front row were Taylor Swift, Dakota and Elle Fanning, and Beyonce and Solange Knowles.
