Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his husband, Justin Mikita, and their non-profit advocacy organization, Tie The Knot, have announced their fourth collection of bow ties. Personally designed by Ferguson and Mikita, the brand new bow ties will be available at the store and online, with all proceeds from the sale of the bow ties being donated to charities promoting marriage equality on behalf of the LGBT community. Each tie retails at $25.00, is handmade and self-tie. This year, the tie collection features Pro-Athlete All-Star guest designers, including former NFL player Scott Fujita, NFL player Chris Kluwe and Phoenix Mercury WBNA player Brittney Griner.
In addition to selling the online, the ties will be available in a pop-up store in the Beverly Hills Center through January 10, 2014. This year’s collection will be available, as well as past bow ties designed by guest such as Isaac Mizrahi and George Takei.
Tie The Knot co-founder Jesse Tyler Ferguson boasts, “Just in time for the holidays, Tie The Knot is excited to make its world premiere into the space of brick-and-mortar. We have been so pleased by the outpouring of support and are excited to bring a bold and fashion forward gift, which supports a right as fundamental as marriage equality, to the center of Los Angeles’ fashion industry.”
