Appaman Won an Earnie for Best Kids Coats!

October 20, 2015 in Appaman News


For the second year in a row, Appaman snagged a prestigious Earnie Award from Earnshaw’s Magazine for Best Outerwear (aka best kids coats and jackets). The Earnie Awards are Earnshaw’s way of recognizing the best children’s brands for their excellence in design. Earnshaw’s is an institution! For almost 100 years, they’ve remained the most influential children’s industry trade magazine. We’re honored to earn their award for best outerwear for girls and boys again.

The 35th annual Earnie’s award ceremony took place last night at the ENK Children’s Club in New York City with a runway show featuring some of our best kids coats. Our Faux Fur Coat in Cameo Pink sashayed down the runway in style.

Tina is moving up the ranks!

June 26, 2015 in Appaman News

It’s high time we properly welcome Tina to Appaman HQ’s official full time staff. Many of our retailers and buyers have been working with Tina since last year, when she joined Team Appaman as a part time assistant, splitting her time between our NYC showroom and Appaman HQ.  She’s a hardworking lady with a killer sense of style and a knack for quickly learning any task we send her way, so it’s no surprise that soon enough, we had to have her at 195 Chrystie Street full time.


Tina is a Brooklyn native who graduated Magna Cum Laude last May from SUNY Buffalo State with Bachelor’s degrees in Fashion Textile Technology and Business Administration. Like many of us here at HQ, she loves to read, shop and travel — if she had to pick a favorite city (other than New York, duh) it would be either Rome, Barcelona, Paris and London.  Appaman is Tina’s first “professional” job, and she says she’s loving the experience.

Welcome, Tina! Glad to have you around.



That’s a Wrap! Behind the Scenes at the Spring/Summer 2016 Photoshoot

June 1, 2015 in Appaman News, NYC

It’s that time of year: We’ve styled, shot, and wrapped yet another Appaman Spring/Summer collection. We have so much fun hanging out with our models and watching all of our hard work come to life on camera.

As always, it’s all hands on deck to make sure these busy few days run smoothly. It’s a challenge, and sometimes a bit hectic to keep all the clothes and kids where they need to be at the right time, but with a little teamwork and a whole lot of organization, we somehow manage to get it all done and have a good time.

We are really excited about some great new designs we have in store for our fans and wish we could show you more, but you’ll have to wait til Spring 2016 to see the full collection in stores. For now, here are a few behind the scenes photos of our recent shoot here in our Chrystie Street studio. Stay tuned til next spring!

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  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!)

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.
