Event details

A chance encounter on a train marked the beginning of a 100-year journey in men's fashion.

Callil Abdallah was a man blessed with an entrepreneurial spirit. In search of inspiration for a new venture, he went to America. On a train he struck up a conversation with a tie maker who explained to him how to make a necktie.

Callil drew the tie pattern onto a napkin and tucked it into his pocket where it stayed until he returned to New Zealand.

Back home he made his first tie and his company, Parisian Ties, has been making ties here ever since.
