THE DESIGNER

BORN AND RAISED IN IOWA, JEFFREY DODD BEGAN HIS CAREER IN VISUAL MERCHANDISING AT RALPH LAUREN.

AFTER GRADUATING FROM PRATT INSTITUTE’S CELEBRATED 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. AN EXCEPTIONALLY TALENTED ARTIST, DRAPER AND PATTERN MAKER, DODD CRAFTS MODERN CLASSICS THAT EXPRESS EFFORTLESS ELEGANCE, TIMELESS ARTISTRY AND LUXURIOUS MINIMALISM.

DODD RECEIVED THE PRESTIGIOUS 2018 RISING STAR AWARD FOR WOMENSWEAR FROM 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 INFLUENTIAL “DEPARTURES 100.”

THE VISION

INSPIRED BY ART, ARCHITECTURE AND THE WORLD AROUND US, DODD BEGINS EACH COLLECTION WITH THE IMPLICIT UNDERSTANDING THAT CREATIVITY IS EVERYWHERE.

WHETHER EXPLORING THE JUXTAPOSITION OF COLORS AND TEXTURES IN NATURE OR THE CURVE OF A LAMP, DODD’S CREATIVE PROCESS IS HIGHLY INFORMED BY HIS EXPERIENCE AS AN ARTIST AND DESIGNER.

DODD’S AESTHETIC IS EVIDENT IN HIS BLENDING OF SEEMINGLY INCOMPATIBLE INSPIRATIONS – SUCH AS THE AMERICAN SOUTHWEST AND ITALIAN MODERNISM – IN EACH DISTINCTIVE COLLECTION.
