How to Tie the Folded Bow

October 09 2018

We are continuing our 'how to tie' necktie series with the 'Folded Bow'.

We love this particular tie option with our 'Grand Slammers' necktie because the organza in this necktie creates a little more stiffness than our other silk satin neckties. Therefore the bow can be more structured and stays in place all day long. But of course, you can wear any of the neckties in this tie style!

Check out the steps to give her a try!

How to Tie the Lazy Bow

September 17 2018

We have been getting a lot of questions from customers on how to tie their andieanderin necktie.

There are so many options for how to wear her and we want everyone to explore all the options! We will be working on a step-by-step "how to tie" series. Hopefully you will give these a try and maybe they will inspire new tie ideas as well.

Our first instructional sketch is for "the lazy bow". Check out the steps.

The Power of Bringing Women Together

August 21 2018
There are power in numbers, especially when it comes to gathering women together. We recently hosted a group of amazing women to talk influence, necktie designs, and styling - not to mention it all took place at a cafe named after Ada Lovelace! It was a magical evening. Here are a few of the photos.

We want to let you in on a little behind the scenes action as to how we select our women muses and tackle the design process. With a little help from Giphy, we are taking you through the many steps and accompanying emotions we experienced when designing our second collection of neckties.

Welcome into our world :)

The Women that Inspired our First Necktie Collection

June 18 2018

We have been loving doing events and talking with people about our women inspired neckties! And with each event or conversation, we always get the question of "how did you decide on the first set of women to design after?" 

It is a perfectly valid question as selecting the first seven was the most difficult part of the design process, but arguably the most fun at the same time. 

As you are probably already aware, each of our neckties come with a storyboard that includes a unique illustration of the woman and a write up on what makes her such a badass. Read on to see what was written on the boards for each woman! We think it's a worthy read :)

Is it Possible to Design a Necktie Inspired by Moms?

May 11 2018

On this Mother’s Day, we thought, how fun would it be to try and design a necktie inspired by ‘Moms’.

We understand this is nearly an impossible task, as moms are as diverse as we all are as people, so we took on the mission like we do with all our designs and turned to our research to help us determine the most genuine design.

History of the Women's Necktie aka Pussybow (Photo Gallery)

April 18 2018
Everything old is new again and that couldn't be more true for women's neckties (aka pussybows). It has been a relevant garment accessory for centuries, been a symbol of demureness, femininity, and power AND it has been called a host of different names including neck bow, floppy bow, bowtie, neck scarf, necktie, and pussybow to name a few. Take a stroll down memory lane with us as we look at how the women's necktie has transformed over the years.

8+ Ways to Tie Your Necktie (Video and Images)

February 23 2018

When it comes to neckties, there really is no right or wrong way to tie them and no right or wrong way to style them. Experimenting in the mirror will bring out new tie options and new outfit ensembles you didn't even know were possible. Plus, who doesn't love a little styling session :) 

But, we also know a little 1-2-3 is always nice to get things started.

We Heart Michelle Obama and Her Neckties Too! (Photo Gallery)

January 10 2018
What is there not to love about Mrs. Michelle Obama? A gutsy, smart, bold and determined woman equal to her husband (ahem, the former president), she is a true symbol of femininity and strength. She also became a notable trendsetter while being FLOTUS and we couldn’t help but point out the many times she rocked the necktie trend. See the gallery of photos below.

The Top Women of 2017

December 28 2017
2017 was a monumental year all around. We know it was chock-full of headlines, movies, books, albums, events, etc., but honestly, what comes to mind when we think of the year is: Wonder Woman and a plethora of powerful women - those that marched to start the year and those that continued to make waves and lead conversations throughout the last twelve months.

That’s a Wrap on Kickstarter. Time to Launch! (Party Pics Galore)

What a ride! The last 30 days has been some of the most challenging, rewarding, and emotional (in a good way) days of our lives! Our Kickstarter campaign closed at 136% of our financial goal and our new website launched, all on the same day. The moment was worthy of a celebration, so we threw a party with family, friends, and new collaborators. 

Outfits for All 7 Days of the Week (with Neckties of Course!)

December 14 2017

Neckties (or pussybows) used to be reserved for the workplace with a blouse and suit.  Those days are long gone. I mean, don't get us wrong, they still look great with a power suit and any collared shirt, but you should also feel free to pair a necktie with a variety of necklines. With our first collection consisting of seven neckties, we have assembled an outfit guide detailing a look for every day of the week - each amplified by adding a one-of-a-kind necktie designed after an influential woman.

Women’s Neckties - Trend or Staple?

November 22 2017
Fashion is such an arbitrary word. Don’t get me wrong, I adore fashion. I mean you’d have to if starting a company in the fashion industry! It’s distinctive and often constant as it relates to how a person dresses. Fashion is also the prevalent styles induced by the newest creations of textile designers. Thank god for fashion designers!
