Appaman HQ has Grown by One Amazing Designer

May 24, 2011 in Appaman News

Although Harald is still churning out great graphics and his flare for fashion hasn’t dimmed, he felt it was time for some fresh ideas at Appaman.

Enter Susan Kay. She hails from Piedmont, California, now a proud resident of Fort Greene, Brooklyn. She recently graduated from Parsons School of Design with the Childrenswear Designer of the Year award to show for it. She started drawing as a little girl and designed her first pair of shoes with the hopes that Santa Claus would manufacture them. He unfortunately didn’t come through with the shoes but delivered a dollhouse that she said was “a little disappointing”. We are hoping to one day manufacture those shoes and show Santa Claus that dreams happen right here on the LES.

Please welcome Susan Kay to the Appaman Team. We are so excited, and have already glimpsed at Fall 2012 and it’s spot-on Style!

Appaman hits Asia in a huge way!

We are over the moon about this next stage for Appaman. We have officially opened our first retail store and it is primely located in central Hong Kong. Our distributors El Mariti, saw a gap in the marketplace for mid-range premium brands and they jumped. El Mariti is a group of incredibly successful businessmen, socialites and tastemakers in Hong Kong and they are masterminding this venture. Fans of the brand for years, they approached us in 2010 to forge a relationship with one mission, to bring Appaman to China. We are on our way and very excited. Check out the very cool store conceptual design by Brooklyn’s own Jennifer Ward of Minor Details. WE LOVE IT!!!
