TFH Campaign


Greetings, Panachers! I’ve been away too long. Yes; I know. I’ve been consumed with my bow ties–designing and bringing them to life. To add, I’ve been organizing this The Female Haberdasher Bow Tie Campaign. I’m raising $1000 for manufacturing, marketing and advertising. I’m taking my neckwear business to a new level of success. And I need your love and support as I continue this journey.

To add, TFH was placed in a boutique about a month ago, Dupp & Swat of Charlotte, NC. I’m so excited that people can now experience my bow ties in person. This has been my motivation to strive to get these bow ties in as many boutiques and department stores as possible.

I know you’re ever so curious about my love life. It’s been all over the place. Lol. It’s hard to maintain any kind of constant when you’re moving and shaking all the time. But I’m going to get it right one day. You just wait.

Furthermore, my life, more stories, and pictures are to come … I’ll keep you posted and will begin to post more often.

Thanks for your patience and your invested interest in Nikkipanache! Xo Soon!

Hope you had a Happy Valentine’s!

Women Wear Bow Ties


I’ve been asked repeatedly about women wearing bow ties. “How do you wear it?” Answering this question varies from female-to-female. For me, I like to play up my more girly, feminine side. I love lots of color and floral patterns.

Below, I styled together one of The Female Haberdasher floral bow ties–“Lucie“–with a gray shirt that has a bit of a collar, a black Banana Republic Blazer and Levi’s boyfriend cut jeans. The shoes: Franco Sarto Mary Jane.

This is my casual look for a day about town. Tell me what you think.

Chuck Bass’ Suited For CountrySide


I’m geeked that one of my favorite shows–Gossip Girl–landed season 6. Now that Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick) rescued and revived his father Bart Bass from a fake death and a host of other scandals, we can all witness Chuck revert back to his more natural role–the ruthless, scheming, bad boy of the Upper East Side. I’m sure there are others. But he’s the only one who counts.

Last night, Chuck was headedu to the countryside for some “horsing around” … I meant horseback riding. In style, Chuck was “spotted” wearing a pink checkered shirt, pink flower lapel andddddd (drum roll please), A LIME GREEN BOWTIE!

Chuck Bass denotes dapper every time he hits the scene. Never a miss.

Check out his wardrobe. And don’t forget to check out my 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.
