After their New York Fashion Week show, Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte sat down to chat with the press about their work costuming the LA Philharmonic's production of Don Giovanni, what they enjoy about designing and what's next for the label. They also talk about why they love designing up until the last possible moment: "We always have amazing ideas two weeks before a show and the challenge is to figure out how to make them. And everyone gets mad at us but I feel like that's my favorite part because it's this huge adrenaline rush that happens and the creativity that comes out because you're just thinking every five seconds instead of sporadically."
