When you talk about the fashion designer Emily Bode, ‘technological innovation’ is one of the last things that comes to mind.
Bode’s creations are hand-made from upcycled antique textiles that often date back hundreds of years.
You can call them charming, refreshing, and even un-digital in their essence.
Emily Bode Label – Tech Innovator
However, Emily Adams Bode, winner of the 2019 CFDA Fashion Award for Emerging Designer of the Year, welcomes technological innovation as a requisite to business development and growth.
The brand’s latest digital partnership, named ‘Bode Vault’, sees the designer using Microsoft’s AI to optimise the entire business model.
Bode wants innovation in all aspects of her business, from stock management to design and sales.
A vast network of experts and historians in textiles helped Microsoft to custom-build the AI library.
Moreover, the software company consulted several American quilt dealers and the designer herself.
Emily Bode Label – Artificial Intelligence
Microsoft’s ‘design-to-production’ AI-powered platform acts as a computerised library of patterns.
Bode is the world’s first to use it for fashion, in such a unique way as it allows Bode to attach facts, historical dates, to any materials.
Moreover, she can also see how much of a particular material is available.
While innovative and Bode’s AI journey does not end here.
The American designer has further plans on how to best use AI for her business.

A decade of fashion; here’s to the next one.
The past decade has been turbulent – and defining – for fashion: child labour, climate crisis, gender inequality, animal cruelty, and reckless plastic pollution, just to name a few.
In these critical times, finding media that reports with rigour and integrity at heart is difficult.
Media that informs all, regardless of where they live or if they can afford to pay, is even harder.
Independent fashion media magazines are increasingly silenced by social media misinformation and commercial ownership.
