Check out our gear below, featured on the cover of Big Apple Parent magazine’s December 2014, January 2015, February 2015, and March 2015 issues. Style details after the jump.

Spring is here at Appaman

February 11, 2015 in Appaman News, New This Season

Hey, Appaman fans! We’re thrilled to announce the arrival of our brand new Spring 2015 collection, now available to shop on Appaman.com.  Though Punxatawney Phil, our nation’s favorite groundhog, has decided that we have a few more weeks of winter left, we’re too excited about our great, new warm weather styles to think too much about the chilly weather here in New York City.

We’d like to share a video with you that features some of our new styles, plus a preview of some late spring/early summer styles that are on their way (available next month). Shot on location in Brooklyn, NYC, with beautiful drone camerawork and direction from MCM Productions, we think it totally captures Appaman clothing worn for its primary purpose: playing and having fun.

Check out the full video below, or scroll down for highlights (more at the jump). Be sure not to miss the cameo by our furry mascot, Party Hat Husum!)

North West Rocks Appaman’s Faux Fur Coat

January 15, 2015 in In the news, Press, Star Style

Ever the fashionista in her year and a half on “the scene,” Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s daughter, North, is gaining a reputation for rocking the same fashion-forward styles and monochrome color palette as her famous parents.

Recently, North was spotted in one of our favorite pieces from Appaman’s Fall/Winter 2014 line, the Faux Fur Coat in Black (the color that goes with everything)

We love this jacket because it’s versatile enough to glam up just about every outfit — save it for a special occasion, when you need something to go with your fanciest dress, or throw it on over casual jeans or leggings for a look that’s a little wild and — most importantly — a whole lot of fun.

Five Weeks of Giving – Coalition of Immokalee Workers

January 7, 2015 in Appaman News

Jenna has chosen Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) as the organization to benefit from her Five Weeks of Giving contribution.

This is a worker-based human rights organization recognized for its achievements in the fields of social responsibility, human trafficking and gender-based violence at work.   The CIW launched the very successful Fair Food Program that works to ensure rights for farmworkers.

Farm labor exploitation is prevalent in this country and it’s something that should change if we want to continue to benefit from local farms and healthy food.

Will is donating this gift in memory of Khan. The hospital was very touched to hear of this gift and plan to use the money for animals in need that don’t have necessary funds to treat their conditions.

Five Weeks of Giving 2014 – The Akilah Institute for Women

December 20, 2014 in Appaman News

Katie’s “pay it forward” pick is the Akilah Institute for Women is a women’s college with campuses in Rwanda and Burundi and headquarters in NYC.

By providing low income women with access to affordable, market-relevant education, industry-specific skills and job placement services, Akilah prepares students for careers in the booming private sector economy of East Africa, which faces a shortage of qualified employees. In a region with high underemployment, where 85% of women still work in subsistence agriculture (earning less than $2 per day), and just 1% of the population enters university (and less than 1/3 of students are female), access to education is the tool that empowers women to build their own professional identity, become leaders, and drastically improve the standard of living for themselves and their families. Akilah graduates, on average, earn five times the national average income, and 1/3 are the heads of their households.

Katie says:

“Around the world, women are denied access to educational opportunities that I spent most of my life taking entirely for granted, limiting their personal autonomy and ability to to take control of their health, wellbeing, finances, and future. Educating women and girls has been proven to be the single most effective way that a developing region can improve the lives and safety of individuals, families, and the community at large. But worldwide, women — especially those from low income backgrounds —  face unique challenges and cultural barriers that keep them out of professional spheres. I love how Akilah, in addition to providing practical on-the-job skills, focuses on developing students’ abilities in critical thinking, confidence, leadership and team building. A friend of mine works for this great organization and so I’ve gotten to hear first hand how dedicated they are to creating an educational model that does right by its students and continues to meet its own high expectations.”
