The Women that Inspired our First Necktie Collection
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?
On this Mother’s Day, we thought, how fun would it be to try and design a necktie inspired by ‘Moms’.
