Dogwood Black: College & Fraternity Bow Ties & Neck Ties
In 2010 Dogwood Black was born. Kind of. We actually started out just as a High School Senior Culmination project at the Commonwealth Governors School in Virginia. The project was to create a fictitious company, business plan, and marketing. The works. Halfway through the assignment we had launched the fake company online underneath the company name Southern Ties. Not but a couple of days had gone by and then something funny happened. We started getting orders. At first, we explained that the company wasn’t real and sorry for the confusion. Then something else funny happened. Stores started contacting us wanting to carry our products. At that point in time, we decided “Well hell. Lets start selling bow ties”.
