“Thank you for supporting me in my pursuit of American storytelling.” From the @cfda awards last night…what a true honor it is to receive this award, to stand alongside such an amazing list of nominees and recipients. In college @parsons_fashion our whole class would stay up together to hear the winners announced each year, and I still cannot believe that my name has been called among them. Thank you to everyone (especially my team ❤️) who has supported Bode over these first few years – I am so grateful and look forward to sharing many more thoughtful narratives in the seasons to come.
The designer, whose brand Bode is an ApparelMagic client, is a newcomer on the scene—only launching the company three years ago—but since then has been a critical darling with eco-friendly, heirloom fabrics and nostalgic cuts and embellishments.
Winning an award from the CFDA is the highest honor in American fashion. However, this is not Bode’s first accolade. Just last year, Bode was a runner up for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, winning $150,000 in the competition.
