Every season, we join forces with local graffiti style street artists to create our Artist Capsule Collection. This season’s designs come from AVONE, the artist who inspired our very first ACC, and we couldn’t be more thrilled about it. His new series is inspired by the many historic and iconic landmarks of NYC, and his unique take on New York really shines through in his work.
AVONE, the artist behing the Spring 2013 Artist Capsule Collection, visits Appaman HQ
Recently, AVONE stopped by to visit Appaman HQ and signed our evolving graffiti board. So even if we sell out of everyone of his awesome t-shirts, he has forever left his mark here at Appaman!
This summer the Appaman team was pleased to bring on board our very own ray of California sunshine, Erica Atkins! With her killer vintage style, magnetic personality, and affinity for Appaman HQ’s fave TV series Downton Abbey, Erica and her West Coast charm help make our office a great place to be. Erica brought in her past children’s industry expertise to work with our major wholesale accounts, and she is the logistical mastermind behind getting Appaman’s goods organized and shipped to department stores and other large retailers around the country…which, as industry folks know, is quite a task.
So, this post is long overdue, but nevertheless, we wish a very warm welcome to Erica, a wonderful addition to our staff.
Katie Luscombe, a lovely midwestern gal with a quirky sense of humor, incredible talents in nail art, baby naming, and impressive journalistic talents has officially joined Team Appaman. She runs our online division bringing fun social media, great customer service and online e-commerce charm.
We have been lucky enough to know Katie for a few years from her background in the children’s industry and when a position opened up, we pounced. This post is long overdue, but since Katie typically does them and she is that kind of humble gal, it didn’t get done. So please give a warm welcome to Katie when you get a minute.

As you know, NYC was his hard during Hurricane Sandy this past weekend. Our Lower East Side offices are currently out of power and not operational until further notice. Therefore, our wholesale and web orders will be delayed until we are up and running again.
Thank you for you patience, and we hope you and your family were able to stay safe during the storm!
