Fashion label Things II Come, the brainchild of Sherwayne Mahoney which specialises in accessories, clothing and shoes, will debut its footwear in Macy's spring and summer 2022 collections. Macy's is described as “America's Department Store”, an iconic brand and retail industry leader known for value and high-quality products.
Mahoney, who was born to Jamaican parents in New York, made the breakthrough after 14 years of promoting awareness of his brand in the tristate area and wider markets.
His love of art and drawing, as well as production of works in high school, led to his enrolment at Parsons School of Design, before transitioning to the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). There he was introduced to the luxury market where detailing, fine fabrics and rare materials were emphasised.
While at college, Mahoney worked in retail, including at Tommy Hilfiger where he was as assistant merchandiser; Escada USA, as director of merchandising and sales; Nine West Holdings; and Easy Spirit. Even while holding down the jobs, Mahoney continued to expand his portfolio, noting, “I continued growing my brand awareness as much as I could, developed additional jewellery styles, and increased our luxury scarves customer base.
Simultaneously, Mahoney, who also serves as CEO and creative director of Things II Come, explained. “I took on temp jobs at other fashion brands to support the business and myself,” he says. He started Things II Come in 2009 with a line of scarves, later adding jewellery, sofa pillows, made-to-measure clothing; and later his women's footwear.
