At the studio, we love to support emerging designers. Amid the commercialism and monotony that seem to be dominating the New York fashion scene, there are some exciting and innovative brands that are forging their own paths and inspiring us. When we stumble across one of them, we jump right on it. That’s why we were thrilled to have the opportunity to cover some of the nominees for the CFDA’s Emerging Designer of the Year award, Foundrae and Bode (Bode took home the honor at last night’s awards ceremony!). Both brands, and their respective founders, have a distinct voice and a unique point of view. In anticipation of the awards ceremony, we caught up with both of them to talk about inspiration and the industry right now.
