The history of the bow tie
The knotted bow ties were first introduced by the Croatian soldiers, after the war the French adopted the look and with Paris being a fashion capital, the upper class soon adopted the look where it then became a phenomenon.
At the beginning of their manufacture bow ties were gender specific to males but in the early 1920s it became more acceptable for females to wear the accessory. The star Katharine Hepburn was known to wear males clothing in both her camera and off camera life. Katharine is one of the main stars that played a key role in determining that today popular celebrities are replicating her style, such as Beyoncé and Rihanna.
With the massive success in bow ties the need for them is high and are now more readily available than ever and not only the upper class.
