To me, fashion has always been something that should express exactly who you are. What you wear should provide the first insight into your personality and let others know a little bit about you without ever having to open your mouth. In fact, Rachel Zoe once quipped, “Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.”
However, a major problem that so many people encounter is finding clothes or accessories that accomplish this. Admittedly, the fashion world has become quite saturated, and it seems that there has been a shift to trendiness over quality and classic style. I think this is a shame and it is definitely something I try to combat with my fashion sense. I want people to view me as a classic that won’t even go out of style, and as a result I love wearing brands that share these values. This leads me to the one-of-a-kind custom bow tie that I had made by The Bow Tie Collective.
I was lucky enough to work with this extremely talented design team on a design all my own! What better way could there be to truly express your personality than to make it all your own! I helped to select this eye catching print that I think captures my personality extremely well! And now with The Bow Tie Collective they make it extremely simple to design your own custom bow tie! On their website you simply submit your information, what material you desire, and the kind of look you’re going for and the process goes from there.
As I discussed in my last post, I’ve come to a major point in my life where business and fashion are meeting. I must maintain professionalism at all times in order to put my best foot forward with my clients. However, this doesn’t mean that I have to sacrifice style. With this custom design that balances my personal style and love for color with something suitable for work, I’m able to channel exactly my personality!
And did I mention the quality of the silk! I was so pleased with the touch of the bow tie, as well as the ease with which it tied! The Bow Tie Collective did such a great job with this tie and made no sacrifices in terms of quality or style!
Overall, I really want to thank The Bow Tie Collective for working so closely with me on this project, and I can happily say that this is easily one of my favorite pieces that I own! Not only does it fit my personality perfectly, but the custom design really made me feel apart of the process and made it that much more special. You all need to look into getting some made for yourselves (or the important men in your life)! Trust me when I say that you’ll be tremendously pleased with the end result!
