Through Bode’s study and conservation of ephemera and the act of collecting, we are able to distill cultural artifacts that would otherwise be lost or forgotten. Courtesy of Bode.

An evening with acclaimed menswear designer Emily Adams Bode Aujla, an innovator in textile and craft conservation and the re-use, study, and preservation of antique lace. Bode, in conversation with Threads of Power curators Emma Cormack and Michele Majer, will explore the importance of the archive in contemporary lace fashion and how the craft of lacemaking connects us to our past, present, and future.
Emily Adams Bode Aujla was the first female designer to show at NYFW: Men’s. She is paving the way for women entrepreneurs in the menswear industry.

She continues to reinvigorate American menswear through the art of storytelling and preservation with these foundational one-of-a-kind pieces alongside collections of historical reproductions.
