From the runway to my inner circle, men and women are rocking bow ties, transforming the ordinary to extraordinaire!
Emerging from the Old Word to contemporary fashion, bow ties are no longer solely worn by doctors, lawyers, accountants and engineers. Though bow ties still give off an air of sophistication and intellect, they are donned by individuals across professions.
At one time, I associated the bow tie with older gentlemen who were raised in an earlier time, think post Civil War. But having seen men and women wear them to social events and neighborhood bars, I see that bow ties are making a comeback that’s a bit more casual and fun.
So why not have a bow tie that you can wear at work and at play? That pays homage to our forefathers and represent pioneers of today? That can be worn in business meetings and to cocktail parties?
In an effort to break a traditional mold of bow ties that you usually find in department stores, I’m introducing BOLDTies, an online bow tie boutique, where individuals can find bolder patterns and more daring colors. BOLDTies that highlight any casual and or business attire. These BOLDTies are for the daring accountant who heads straight to happy hour for a martini … or for the writer who’s vying for a promotion. These self-tie bow ties are ostentatious in design, insinuating smarts and personality.
Here’s a glimpse of one of my most recent designs, a four-way tie, that has been added to the boutique today. It was designed to represent versatility and adeptness. In bringing this bow tie to life, I envisioned it being worn in all seriousness by an executive, an assistant, or intern who is working to climb new heights in the office and on the social scene. And that’s why I call it “The Politician.” Find this bow tie at here.
