To celebrate the new collection and one full year of advocating for equality, Tie The Knot, The Tie Bar and Beverly Center teamed up this holiday season to extend a unique opportunity allowing consumers to shop for a cause by opening a Pop-Up from Nov. 18 through Jan. 10.

The exclusive shop will feature every previously sold-out design from the collection's inception, including all of the past bow ties designed by guest designers such as Isaac Mizrahi, George Takei and more, as well as selections of other fashion forward men's accessories furnished by Tie The Knot's retail partner, TheTieBar.com.

The shop is located at Beverly Center (Level 7 - Luxury Wing), 8500 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90048. All proceeds from the sales of the fashion accessories and bow ties go to the fight for marriage equality.

"A cornerstone for the premiere fashion center's holiday program this year, Tie The Knot punctuates Beverly Center's evolving outreach to the LGBTQ community," said Susan Vance, Beverly Center marketing and sponsorship director. "The pop-up store stays true to the center's fashion forward profile and features a diverse collection of bow ties from the founding team and celebrity commissioned designers."  Tie The Knot co-founder Jesse Tyler Ferguson boasts,

"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," Ferguson added.
