SHERI BODELL STORY
Somewhere in the catacombs of her marvelous mind, Sheri Bodell’s designs take shape. Like a tiny snowflake that accumulates into a massive mountain of snow-filled bliss, there’s no exact place of origin. Based in Los Angeles; traditional pencil sketches, killer fabrics and meticulous hand placed details are the building blocks of every Sheri Bodell collection.
As a rare self taught designer, Bodell has always forged her own path. With her introverted demeanor sometimes disguising her outgoing mind, Bodell is brilliant yet unorthodox in her process. Having started her career out as a buyer before becoming a designer, she developed a deep understanding of what the consumer is interested in. Now decades into her wild ride in the fashion industry, Sheri Bodell’s kinetic creations are sold in hundreds of stores worldwide. Dramatic and demure at the same time, her designs demand attention, whether the wearer does or not. But generally the wearer is always wise to the attention her sensational style is getting.
Credited with cornering the market on the quintessential party frock, Sheri Bodell looks have become red carpet stalwarts for a slew of starlets from Beyonce, Carrie Underwood, Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Sharon Stone, Paris Hilton, Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Miley Cyrus, and Khloe Kardashian.
Designing all of her own fabrics in-house keeps Sheri Bodell pieces forever individual. (She even gives each design its own name.) Rife with intricate details and signature hardware such as metal studding orchestrated into a chevron design or jackets juxtaposed as statement pieces; Bodell manages to keep the overall look ageless and timeless without sacrificing its youthful draw and undeniable uniqueness – much like a delicate snowflake.
A part from showcasing at several Fashion Week’s worldwide, Sheri Bodell designs have been featured in numerous fashion magazines including: Vogue, Elle, Italian Vogue, In-Style, Marie Claire, Lucky, Nylon and Cosmopolitan.
