MARCH Window

March 3, 2017

Our MARCH window is dedicated to every one of you who is working to support and empower the people who need it the most. Over the past few months, we’ve been so inspired by our Tribe: the women and people who are standing up for what is right. We've collected photographs from Women's Marches all over the country (thank you to all the contributors!!!), and they'll be on display for the entire month, so please stop by to see all that power and beauty. Onwards and upwards!

In honor of International Women’s Day, and in solidarity with a Day Without A Women, we’re giving out red bandanas to our Tribe to wear on March 8th.


Contributing Photographers share Why I March:


NATALIE UPTON
“I want my daughters to live without the fear of not having control over their own bodies. I want my girls to see their Mother stand up for what is intrinsically “right” in this world.  I march because I want to be an active member of this global community who believes and fights for equal rights for all human beings.  Sometimes, when the battle feels too overwhelming to win from the outside, you just have to show up and see who’s standing with you.”  


ERIN LONG​
“I marched for so many reasons. I marched for all the young women in my life, who should always have a right to choices for their own bodies, I marched as a proud single mama to two incredible young men who should see and hear the strength of women, and that we are equal, I marched as a proud lesbian who someday if I meet someone, fall in love...that I will still have the same rights as straight people to marry the love of my life!” 


RYANE DELKA
"I marched because I was terrified and broken and knew that I, compared to so many others, had the least to fear, yet the fear I was experiencing was debilitating.  And because I didn't know where else to begin, I marched and was reminded of the beauty and true goodness in humanity and lifted by the coming together of such love.” 


JENESSA CINTRON
“I am a mother to a transgender child. I am a Mexican and Puerto Rican citizen. I have personally been a client at Planned Parenthood. I believe in the preservation of sacred lands and our environment. I believe in equal civil rights for all humans. I am a woman! And I feel like all of that has been under attack with the rhetoric and policies that are being pushed forward under this administration.” 


KRISTIN KELLY
“I marched because I needed a starting point for action: to physically surround myself with strong women and to move forward with them. I marched to combat the hopelessness I felt at first. I marched to show solidarity with and support for those most attacked and marginalized right now. Marching was the start of my promise to stay informed, compassionate, and active.”

Sea, Unraveled

March 3, 2015



For March's window, what started out as an exploration of the sea quickly became a study of the imagination. Jess, creator of Sea, Unraveled, literally went outside the lines and got lost in the wild nature of the creative process. She highly recommends getting lost there.


The sea's unraveling ends.


"Don't forget to sometimes lose yourself in beauty." -Jess

Dreamy Equestrian

June 19, 2014

This month's Dreamy Equestrian window features a stunning collaboration by Joanna Chattman and Scout Cuomo, and a few borrowed pieces from our friends at Stone Pony Farm.​ In keeping with our theme of storytelling this year at Ode, we've been fascinated by the idea of spirit animals, who guide us on our journey through life as we create our own story. Inspired by the horse, we strive to be fearless and strong of heart. We continue to draw inspiration from all around us, especially the natural world.

Yarn Bombing

March 7, 2014

Liz makes bombs. Yarn bombs, that is. Newest Director of Design here at Ode, she's spent the last couple weeks creating, as she puts it, "sweaters for sticks." She took the concept of yarn bombing (graffiti-like tactics with a crafty bent) to a whole new level.  The Ode level. 


Eye love you.

“Not Quite Here”

“Not Quite Here”

For our July window, we invited Northampton based painter Perry Huntoon to create one of her signature psychedelic mountain ranges. We had fun dressing her up in Ode while she installed her clouds and cliffs for our dress forms to explore. Her installation is titled "Not Quite Here."
