Designers Say The Darndest Things: Laura Mulleavy


We used a button for the first time, and that was traumatic! We needed one for this pair of shorts because it looked cute. And I hate buttons. So, we looked for buttons for a month at every source of buttons in the world and we never found one we liked. So, eventually I was talking to this tailor when I was picking up my dry cleaning, and I was like, ‘Well, what do guys use for buttons?’ and he said, ‘Just make a covered button.’ So, that’s what we did. But it was flat, so it doesn’t look like anything!” - Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte

You know what I’m afraid of? Zippers. Because I’m Amish.
