Emily Adams Bode Aujla, the two-time recipient of the CFDA’s Menswear Designer of the Year award for her brand Bode, brings her discerning eye to the Shaker Museum. Inspired by the religious and social order’s legacy of craft, with a specific focus on the industrialization of its knits in 1886, the designer charts the rise of the Shaker technique. Archival photographs from the designer’s personal collection, along with 20 Shaker knit sweaters from the years 1920-1981, as well as contemporary knitwear by none other than Bode.
