Born and raised in Iowa, Jeffrey Dodd began his career in visual merchandising at Ralph Lauren.
After graduating from Pratt Institute’s fashion design program, Dodd was recruited to join the Rachel Zoe design team where he was instrumental in launching her fashion line.
In 2014, Dodd launched his eponymous collection.
Inspired by both his childhood travels and his love of art and architecture, Dodd draws on diverse inspirations – from the American Southwest and its desert landscapes to Italian Modernism and the juxtaposition of colors and textures in nature. He plays with these seemingly incompatible elements to create modern, meticulously detailed yet effortlessly relaxed collections
Dodd received the 2018 Rising Star Award for Womenswear by Fashion Group International and was selected by the City of New York as a 2016 Design Entrepreneur.
Dodd is often featured in key global publications, including Vogue, ELLE, InStyle, Us Weekly, People, The Daily Mail, Glamour, Grazia, New York, and Departures – who selected Dodd as one of their prestigious “Departures 100.”
