The 12 Days of Christmas with The Female Haberdasher’s Bow Ties

On second thought, inundating you guys’ inboxes with bow ties would be a bit bunch. But I’ve been tweeting my 12 Days of Christmas Bow Tie Special. Here’s an update.

On the 1st Day of Christmas, I designed the Southern Gent which was inspired by my southern influence.

On the 2nd day of Christmas, I designed Winter because Charlotte looks nothing like a Winter Wonderland and, I needed to see snow. In this tie, there is abstract snowflakes pattern. So much for Christmas in NJ. Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen.

On the 3rd Day of Christmas, the nation mourned a tragedy. We lost 27 people in Newtown, Connecticut. Mostly precious children. I didn’t post at all. Yet I designed the Purple Heart for all the brave souls we learned about that day.

On the 4th Day of Christmas, I attended #asummitchristmas (find these wild tweets by using tgis hashtag) which was coordinated and hosted by Carolina alumni. It was the BEST party I attended all year. And I attended a lot of parties this year so … There were over 70 people at this house party. Homemade liquor, food, hookahs … a party. And folks sported their tacky sweaters. This could’ve been my tacky bow tie. I instead left this at home and went in a sparkly gold tunic, leopard black print/black jeans, and gold heels. Oh and a blazer. Just in case you were wondering. Anyway see my Tacky Sweater Bow Tie. Ain’t it a beauty?

On the 5th Day of Christmas, I designed a custom black and red bow tie for a client in Atl. It’s a reversible made with canvas and taffeta. It’s so hot. Watch how I tied it here.

On the 6th Day of Christmas, I’m not going to lie to you, I was negotiating deals with another bow tie designer. And I went fabric shopping. The store was still out of my herringbone. So annoyed. But a few fellas had been inquiring about bow ties I had on-hand especially The Modern Outdoorsman. Truth be told, I have a sample that I will not sell. But I decided to put this tie up for rent. No new bow tie design here. Just a popular piece put up for rental.

On the 7th Day of Christmas, I went fabric shopping for more Christmas–themed colors. And my ATL client wanted a matching pocket square. The Female Haberdasher received more hits online, emails, and so forth about more custom bow ties. I’m on crunch time. And when you’re the only one picking out fabric, sewing bow ties, marketing, advertising, and so forth, it gets too be a bit much when the orders roll in. I’ve been managing. But I need so help!! But anyway, here’s the pocketsquare and bow tie set together.

On the 8th Day of Christmas, I designed a custom bow tie that hasn’t been revealed because it’s for an event tonight. So I hate to keep you in suspense, but check back tomorrow. This bow tie has four different lapels! Talk about complicated. But it’s dope! Here’s a single style pattern of it. Christmas Polka dots with a strip of red down the middle.

On the 9th day of Christmas, I found myself  back at the post office in a long line. And believe me, I’m grateful.  I’m thrilled that people are loving my bow tie designs.

Furthermore, I did more fabric shopping and thought to myself that another reversible is in order. So I’ve put a few different patterns together. All poly fabric. Will post this bow tie tomorrow, between fabric shopping and the postal office errands, of course. I gotta get these bow ties shipped before the holidays. That’s how much I appreciate my customers. More tomorrow, so tune in then for more pictures and more designs.

The Bow Tie Shop by The Female Haberdasher

20121029-105404.jpg

Morning, my people. I have great news. I’ve recently opened my online etsy bow tie shop labeled The Bow Tie Shop by The Female Haberdasher and wanted to share such a milestone with my lovely followers.

For the past few months, I’ve been designing bow ties that have a certain avant-garde flair. And they’re becoming an IT item for bow tie connoisseurs who follow me on social media outlets, from CLT to NY, CA, and across seas.

All the bow ties that I–The Female Haberdasher— design are handmade out of handpicked fabrics including that of cotton, silk, polyester and more. I shop local for my fabrics, so they’re one-of-kind and difficult to find.

I–The Female Haberdasher–will continue to add more styles each week. So there’s something cool and new that should keep you talking and coming back for more.

Well, without further adieu, here’s the link to my online shop. There’s a reserved spot for custom bow ties if you’re looking for something a bit more individualized.

You may also use Request button found in the left margin for other bow tie design requests.

Xo, PanachERS. Enjoy The Female Haberdasher online bow tie shop!

NikkiPanache Introduces BOLDTies

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.

Pulled Together with a Maize Belt–Street Etiquette in Layers

I’ve been checking out this blog for quite sometime to see what all Joshua and Travis have to say about menswear, from the urban perspective. Here, layering is put to great use for the colder seasons. I especially enjoy the usage of a cardigan, buttoned or not, casual use of a skinny tie, and the upgrade of a collegiate jacket. Everything is modernized with a nostalgic addition, a solid pair of shoes (no kicks), and pulled together with the same maize belt. Ah-ha, did you see that? There’s much to say about these men and style. Check out the pics a little further.

Street Etiquette is ranked ‘Best Men’s Style Blog’ by the Guardian UK and selected ’40 bloggers who really count’ by the London Times.
