RIC0724 I had the privilege of accompanying our incredible neckwear client,, to Los Angeles to celebrate the launch of their limited-edition bow tie collection with Emmy Award® nominated actor, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and partner, Justin Mikita to benefit Tie the Knot. All proceeds from the sales go directly to various organizations across the country fighting for LGBT civil rights.

While there was plenty of star power at the party (e.g. Julie Bowen, Darren Criss, Lance Bass, Kathy Griffin, Harry Shum, and Joan Collins to name a few), the most memorable moment of the experience was watching’s owners, Greg and Gina Shugar, celebrate the partnership.

The debut collection of the Jesse Tyler Ferguson for collection is exclusively available online now at The Tie Bar ( Be sure to purchase a bow tie before they sell out!  Follow at @thetiebar on Twitter for updates on the collection and more.
