At the 2021 CFDA Awards, presented by the Council of Fashion Designers in America in New York, Emily Bode Aujla won the award for American Menswear Designer of the Year.
Her brand, Bode, uses ApparelMagic’s fashion ERP software to manage its growing business and all of the opportunities, challenges, and rewards of operating a fashion brand today.
Bode has grown from a new voice within the fashion industry to join its upper echelons at a rapid pace. Its rise has tracked a new cultural shift in gender presentation and sustainable practices. Bode’s signature mix of reused textiles and ornate embellishments has not just kept up with the times—it’s changed them.
Bode Aujla is no stranger to accolades. In 2018, her brand was named a runner-up for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund. Just a year later, the designer took home the award for Best Emerging Designer at the CFDA Awards in 2019.
