Emilie Bosworth-Clemens received her BFA from The Rhode Island School of Design in 2005 and has a background working in the art department for film and tv, where she amassed various screen credits. Emilie has been a practicing artist of many mediums for decades, and has been included in group exhibitions in several US cities. She first began creating under the name "Crossfox" in 2009, eventually expanding to an online presence in 2011.
SINCE IT'S EMERGENCE, HER STRIKING COMBINATION OF THE SOFTEST, FINEST QUALITY, ECO FRIENDLY AND HERITAGE FABRICS, FLATTERING LINES, HISTORICAL FEELS, POCKETS EVERYWHERE AND MOTTLED EARTHY HAND DYED HUES QUIETLY TOOK THE ECO FRIENDLY SLOW FASHION COMMUNITY BY STORM.
Emilie puts regard for what came before her as well as authenticity and originality at the forefront of her work, balancing loving homages and refrences to historical clothing with her own slanted visions, often withdrawing from social media for extended periods while designing.
Emilie's lifelong study of figure drawing allowed her to distill her understanding of the human form into a functional and comfortable wearable art object with everyday purpose, charged with her inspiration. See some of Emilie's other works here.
Only the finest natural fiber and heritage fabrics are sourced, with a focus on extremely comfortable long-wearing materials with gorgeous drape, including many organics. Nothing wears better than natural fibers.
All designs herein are completely original, like the strong, authentic women they are made for.
CROSSFOX CLOTHING EXISTS TO ENABLE FANTASY WHILE RETAINING FUNCTIONALITY AND DURABILITY.
A pioneer in her field with over decade of experience and clients including Kat Von D, Malin Akerman and Chelsea Wolfe.
Emilie has lead the way in slow fashion with many game changing innovations and designs, such as her rabidly popular bamboo fleece pocket leggings, and coveted outerwear.
Emilie draws her inspiration from joint interests in history, folklore, travel, secret witchy shit and the mundane need for applied utilitarianism.
Through this is formed a unique point of view which does not clamor for attention, but knows it's own value. Her pieces are a wearable expression of her daily exploration of history, human nature and the occult, which is central to the creative vision and evolution of Crossfox. ✨
A "cross fox" is an unusual color phase of the North American red fox with a coat sporting a mottled coloration similar to the dyes used here. Emilie spent her early years in Vermont obsessively tracking and studying foxes.
THERE IS NO SHORTCUT TO QUALITY.
