Take a Behind-the-Scenes Look at Bode's Woolmark Prize-Winning FW20 Collection
Designer Emily Adams Bode invites viewers inside her NYC studio.
Using vintage fabrics as the base for her one-of-a-kind pieces, Bode emphasizes circularity and ethical production — “I think it’s really important that the idea of sustainability follows you through your supply chain, from original concept to who you work with on the manufacturing side to the kinds of fabrics you utilize,” she explains, noting that the biodegradable, merino wool knitwear in her latest collection was made by a women-run factory in Brooklyn.
The designer also highlights key pieces from the range, including a pennant jacket (made from a turn-of-the-century quilt) featuring hand-drawn illustrations of NYC landmarks. “I’ve always wanted to make clothing that people could really live in and feel comfortable in…I think I’m forever indebted to the people that came before, and that’s why I feel such a strong impulse to celebrate those histories and celebrate those cultures,” Bode concludes.
