andieanderin designs 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. Each necktie comes with an illustrated storyboard that highlights the featured woman’s accomplishments and their contributions to society.
As long time gal pals, we wanted a creative way to celebrate women, share their stories, and advocate for women’s rights. We named the brand andieanderin after favorite female lead characters in the movies “Pretty in Pink” (andie) and “Erin Brokovich” (erin). The power tie was chosen as the fashion accessory of choice because of its significance in the 70s and 80s as women were working their way up the corporate ladder and wearing pussy bow neckties to emulate a man’s tie. Our neckties are proudly produced in a women-run production house in New York City and our portfolio of designs continues to expand.
andieanderin is bringing the power tie back and adding some serious punch by dedicating each design to influential women and sharing their powerful stories of courage and commitment. 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, Hillary Clinton, Melinda Gates, and more.
In addition to celebrating the women we feature in our collection, we also give back to women around the world by donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of every necktie to a rotating list of charities that support women and girls.
Join us as we continue the women’s empowerment conversation and inspire the next generation of young women to reach for their wildest dreams.
