Rodarte: States of Matter
March 4 - June 5
Los Angeles, USA
Following on the heels of the Rodarte sisters' solo exhibition at the Cooper-Hewitt design museum in New York (ends March 14), a new retrospective will open on the West Coast, at LA's Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA). Pieces from Rodarte's Spring 2010, Fall 2010, and Fall 2008 runway collections will be on display alongside the ballet costumes designed for the Oscar-winning movie Black Swan.
Rumors about the forthcoming departure of Stefano Pilati from YSL persist, so this could be his last edition of the fashion house's coveted "Manifesto," an annual publication of inspirational imagery and exclusive interviews. Starting March 5, it will be available for download on the YSL website, and distribution of the popular corresponding bags will take place in Paris, New York, London, Milan, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and, for the first time, Los Angeles.
15th L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival
Karen Walker, Sass & Bide, and Collette Dinnigan will present their latest collections while the Designer Award as well as a graduates showcase will hopefully identify their future successors. The fashion festival, which is largely open to the public, will also see several appearances by Danish supermodel Helena Christensen who is set to walk on the Menswear Runway (March 17) as part of the genderbending trend in fashion.
