A Brooklyn-native and awarded fashion designer, Bevans moved to Portland, Oregon, in 2004 where he spent nearly two decades growing his passion for outdoors. “Over the years living in the Pacific Northwest, my love of the outdoors has grown into a professional pursuit. I have been a longtime admirer of Eddie Bauer for its meticulous commitment to its quality and customers as well as the greater outdoor community, so this is a natural next step in my career. I’m looking forward to leaning into the brand’s rich heritage to create products that balance the art of design with functionality”, commented Christopher Bevans.

Mr. Bevans, a member of the CFDA, has been recognized for his work with DYNE by earning the 2017 Woolmark Innovation Prize and being named a 2017 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalist. He also serves as Senior Creative Lead at Shopify where he works closely with emerging fashion industry entrepreneurs. Bevans began his career in New York City, apprenticing at a local tailoring house of which he became the owner at the age of 19. He had several positions with top brands such as Billionaire Boys Club, Head (Tennis), Sean John, Yeezy, Smithsonian, New York Cosmos and the MacArthur Foundation. From 2003 to 2007, he was Design Director of Nike’s Blue Ribbon Sports Division. In 2013, he was named a Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Lab Director’s Fellow.

“The appointment of Christopher Bevans is an important milestone for the Eddie Bauer brand. Using his unique perspective on tailoring, as well as cut and color, Christopher has already started to reimagine the core Eddie Bauer styles and look of our product assortment,” said Mike Schulam, VP of Merchandising, Eddie Bauer.
