Emily Adams Bode's namesake label celebrates craft and the reimagining of non-traditional fabrics and materials. Founded in 2018 in New York City, Bode's garments were initially all developed from deadstock fabrics, making each piece one-of-a-kind and irreplicable. The act of searching for these fabrics is a key part of Bode's process, tying her contemporary designs to the ingenuity of artisans from generations past. As the label grew, it developed partnerships with manufacturers both domestically and abroad to recreate these vintage fabrics at scale. Its garments are typified by techniques like quilting and appliqué, rich colors, and familiar tropes like souvenir patches. Bode's universe is one of generative nostalgia.
