Emily Adams Bode Aujla is a menswear designer behind her eponymous brand Bode.
In 2016, Bode began producing pieces one by one composed entirely of antique textiles.
In 2018 the designer became the first women to show at New York Men’s Week, paving the way for women entrepreneurs in the menswear industry.
In June 2019, she debuted at Paris Fashion Week Men’s.

Born and raised in Atlanta and moved to New York for college after studying in Switzerland, she moved to New York and graduated with a Bfa/Ba dual degree from Parsons in menswear design and Eugene Lang in philosophy. The brand expresses a sentimentality for the past through the study of personal narratives and historical techniques. Modern workwear silhouettes united with female-centric traditions of quilting, mending, and appliqué shape the collections. Each piece tells a story and is tailor-made.

Bode has been recognized with numerous Awards:
- CFDA Menswear Designer of the Year
- CFDA Menswear Designer of the Year
- Woolmark Prize: Karl Lagerfeld Award for Innovation
- Lvmh Prize Finalist
- Cfda Emerging Designer of the Year
- Business Of Fashion 500
- Forbes 30 Under 30
- Gq’s Breakthrough Designer of the Year
