Backstage & Upfront at Rodarte

My Habit,’s private designer sale site, sent me into the field to report on what the amazingly talented women of Rodarte were showing at this season’s NYFW! I can only hope we see beautiful pieces like these this fall on My Habit’s new designer tab… which I’m quickly becoming addicted to! BUT.. before the shopping begins we must first see where it all started.

The Inspiration: Australian Outback

Lead by hairstylist Odile Gilbert for Kérastase Paris, the models were given updated tufted bobs, full yet untamed adorned with *star* clips while on their face makeup artist James Kaliardos for NARS Cosmetics gave the girls a sandy and suntanned complexion. Nail artist Deborah Lippmann used two coats of “No More Drama” and a top coat of “Flat Top Matte Top Coat” to finish the earthly, almost dusty feel for the season.

Everyone took their seats including Natalie Portman, Dakota Fanning and fashion’s elite. 

{Show Time} 12:30pm

Inspired by the multilayered and rugged outback married with silhouettes of the Victorian era the unveiling began. Patterns referenced aboriginal art and hand prints were inspired by ancient cave paintings. 

Thanks to for this fashionable footage and congratulations to the Mulleavy sisters for this fall’s Rodarte collection.
