Rodarte RTW Fall 2008
As a designer specialising in knitwear I have developed a love for the work of Rodarte and their open knit structures.
This collection is a perfect example of their use of delicate yarns in knit accompanied by laces and organzas, the combination of which creates an enchanting feminine silhouette. The colour palette used here too is a beautiful combination of neturals and subtle pinks and oranges, romantic colours that always attract my attention and inspire my own colour selection in designs I produce.
In my current project I am developing my own materials file by experimenting with different knit techniques, I was insipred to learn the fur stitch from this collection of Rodarte and I am then going to work into the technique further by appling my own dyes and latex to the loops.
