Backstage With Rodarte And Mary Katrantzou-------
Swarovski, the veritable patron saint of young fashion designers and labels, contributes every season to key shows, offering financial support, truckloads of its crystals, or both to its collaborators—who happen to be some of the best and brightest on the international calendar. This year, Rodarte and Mary Katrantzou were two of the beneficiaries of its largesse. Both the Mulleavy sisters’ Days of Heaven-inspired show and Katrantzou’s Fabergé egg fantasia made prominent use of the glittering crystals, as they discuss in these two behind-the-scenes videos, debuting exclusively on Style.com. And to judge by the front-row reaction also caught on tape, sparkle becomes them. The Rodarte video is above; click at left for Katrantzou’s.
