In 2007 I got to interview Harald Husum for a profile on Babble.com. I hit it off with the Appaman designer and his business partner and wife, Lynn. It's no wonder I like the couple behind the brand so much. Like me, Harald and Lynn also have two girls, live in Brooklyn and share a taste for things trendy and cool.
Appaman is a big success story in my book. They've built their Appaman brand by carefully managing the quality and growth of the business. Fall is no exception. It should be noted that out of everything in my daughter's closet, she chose an Appaman ( the horse one shown) dress to wear on her first day of school. For me, the brand combines the best of urban coolness with bright cheerful colors and plenty of whimsy.
