Women of the hour Laura and Kate Mulleavy made a fashionable appearance at the Rodarte Sponsors Reception.
THE PARTY A select few well-heeled notables received, perhaps, the most fashionable invite in DC—to join Rodarte’s Kate and Laura Mulleavy at the National Museum of Women in the Arts for their exhibition unveiling. THE PEOPLE The ladies flew in from California along with friends and fans, including the Bay Area’s Christine Suppes (she is one of their muses) and guest curator Jill D’Alessandro. Also on hand were sponsors such as Swarovski, Northern Trust and TRESemmé, as well as NMWA director Susan Fisher Sterling and former board President Cindy Jones. BEST IN SHOW Certainly the most thrilling part was the chance to walk the exhibition with the Mulleavys, exploring the nearly 100 complete looks. A favorite space held the spring/summer 2018 collection, where the sisters snapped photos amid the floral finery of their own design. -Kristen Schott
