We are andieanderin and we design silk pussy bow neckties inspired by influential women from history and today.
There is a resurgence of women empowerment happening right now and andieanderin is dedicated to supporting this timely and momentous social conversation. Our one-of-a-kind neckties can transform any ensemble and serve as a thought-provoking conversation starter to educate, inform, and inspire. The trailblazing women we feature have helped pave the way for future generations of women and each necktie comes with an illustrated storyboard to highlight these accomplishments.
As long time gal pals, we wanted a creative way to celebrate women, share their stories, and advocate for women’s rights.
The power tie was chosen as the fashion accessory of choice because of its significance in the 70s and 80s. As women worked their way up the corporate ladder they would wear pussy bow neckties to emulate a man’s tie. No longer a copycat accessory, our neckties are meant to stand out in the crowd.
Our neckties are proudly produced in a women-run production house in New York City and we partner with women in all areas of the business.
As Dr. Maya Angelou once said, “I come as one, but I stand as 10,000”, and we’re just getting started. To date, the andieanderin collection features neckties inspired by Malala Yousafzai, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Amelia Earhart, Michelle Obama, Melinda Gates, and more.
In addition to celebrating the women we feature in our collection, we also give back by donating a portion of each necktie sale to a rotating list of charities that support women and girls.
We hope you will join us as we continue the women’s empowerment conversation and reclaim neckties for all.

Fun fact: We named the brand andieanderin after favorite female lead characters in the movies “Pretty in Pink” (andie) and “Erin Brokovich” (erin).
