Have you ever wondered what it’s like to intern at Appaman HQ? We sat down with Jihaeng, a very talented young lady who was gracious enough to spend this past semester as we developed the Spring/Summer 2014 collection. Read on to find out what she worked on during her Appaman internship, her advice for students going into fashion design, plus her tips on personal style…

It’s springtime in NYC! Sarah Jessica Parker‘s super smiley twins, Tabitha and Loretta Broderick, celebrated by bopping around the Big Apple in the bright, matching Roll Bounce Jackets they were spotted wearing last year.

We love how these girls look in coordinated apparel, especially when it involves Appaman outerwear (ok, we’re biased). Click here to check out how they rocked their many different Appaman looks all winter long.
While the Roll Bounce Jacket is no longer available for purchase on Appaman.com, we’re sure you’ll love our selection of new girls’ 2013 outerwear. Click an image below to shop each style:
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.

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!
Although Hurricane Sandy is out of the news it is definitely not out of the lives of many here on the East Coast. Her wrath was felt far and wide and many are still dealing with picking up the pieces. A couple weeks ago Appaman did a fundraiser on our site where 15% of all sales were collected over the course of a week and this money is now being donated to a relief effort. We chose Restore Red Hook. www.restoreredhook.org
We felt a kinship to this organization because it serves entrepreneurs. The vendors that will benefit from Restore Red Hook lost their businesses due to the storm. This not only hurts their lives but the lives of their employees, their neighborhood, and the general morale of the area. We hope that our donation will help in the effort to get Red Hook back on its feet.
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!
