Rodarte:Fra Angelico Collection

To escape all the holiday crowds I went to LACMA to view the Rodarte:Fra Angelico Collection. Rodarte is the fashion label created in 2005 by the sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy. The sisters donated their 2012 Couture Spring/Summer collection to LACMA because they were inspired by the high Italian Renaissance. Specifically by Bernini's sculpture Ecstasy of Saint Teresa and the art work of Fra Angelico in the San Marco Monastery in Florence Italy.

The 9 gowns on display are all silk:






and taffeta.

Lots of pleats, feathers, lace, sequins and swarovski.

But, to be completely honest I was a little under-whelmed :(
