A Win for Rodarte

On April 15 the Chicago Tribune featured Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy, this year's Legend of Fashion Award honorees, in a "Sunday" magazine full-page article. “It won't be the first time the sisters have flown in for the school's highly anticipated annual fashion celebration,” notes special contributor Wendy Donahue. “They came two years ago when [SAIC Fashion Committee member] Ikram Goldman, who bought their first collection for her renowned Chicago boutique, received the same award they will take home to California.” SAIC’s Sage chair in fashion design Anke Loh says in the article, "To our SAIC community, Rodarte's work within the fashion design industry is an example of both success and sustained artistic integrity." The designers will be honored on May 3 at SAIC’s fashion gala The Walk.
