HANIA by Anya Cole Announces Julie Kent as First Brand Ambassador.

HANIA by Anya Cole is proud to announce that American Ballet Theatre Principal dancer Julie Kent will expand her role as the face of our past campaigns to become Brand Ambassador for HANIA by Anya Cole.  To us, Julie has always represented the woman for whom Anya designs: someone who is individual, authentic, and confident to express her own sense of style.

“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to serve as the first brand ambassador for HANIA by Anya Cole” says Ms. Kent.  "Since the beginning of our relationship, almost 4 years ago, everything about this special company has resonated with me. From Anya’s exquisite, chic, and modern designs, to the luxurious feel of the finest cashmere, to the talent of the NYC artisans who create with their own hands these beautifully crafted, one-of-a-kind pieces all echo my own pursuits as a ballerina and artist. This shared link in our personal histories is yet another fiber that knits our experiences and lives in a meaningful way.“

Ms. Kent concludes, "Anya’s sense of community service and her philanthropic approach to business confirms my belief that HANIA is one of the most interesting and unique young companies in the fashion industry today.”



Fashion Revolution Day poses the question who made my clothes? At HANIA by Anya Cole that’s an easy question to answer and today we’ll share some of those people with you. Lendita has been knitting with us since the beginning of the company. ‪#‎FashRev‬ ‪#‎whomademyclothes‬


Shkendije has also been knitting for us since the beginning of HANIA by Anya Cole 4 years ago, she’s one of the over 100 women in NYC that knit our clothes. #FashRev #whomademyclothes


Who made your clothes? Zoje (or Grandma as she’s affectionately called) has also been with HANIA family of knitters since the beginning, and still no signs of slowing down!

Finally we can show the finished result from our scrap yarn project.  Our multi-colored neck warmer was knit over a couple of months with a ball of yarn produced from cashmere scraps we had in the studio.  A simple 2 x 2 rib stitch was used, and Anya decided to use the ends of the knots as a part of the piece rather than hide or trim them.


We were thrilled that Anya was featured as a “Person of Interest” in the latest issue of as if Magazine.




International Women’s Day

Continuing our posts for International Women’s Day on the women behind the scenes at HANIA by Anya Cole.  

Hajrije Kajtazaj was born and raised in Kosovo.  She was raising her eight children and always knitting, and as her daughter Dhurata says even as a little girl she remembers her knitting sweaters for her children. They escaped the war in 1999 and came to America to join their father. Hajrije began working for Anya when she was first starting HANIA and Dhurata first met Anya when she went with her mother to see Anya so that she could translate for her. She and Anya got along really well and when Dhurata was still in high school Anya offered her an internship. Dhurata is now our Office Manager and her mother, of course, continues to knit for us.


International Women’s Day

To celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8 we continue to feature some of the women behind HANIA by Anya Cole. 

Claudia first came to us when she was still majoring in Sportswear Design at FIT, while taking a class in knitwear her teacher arranged a field trip to the HANIA studio, she was really interested in what Anya was doing and when Anya offered to teach them some knitting basics she signed up. After coming by for a lesson she asked if there were any intern spots available and started coming to us once a week, which gradually turned into her joining us full time. Her plan had always been to go back to Vancouver when she graduated, but Claudia decided she really wanted to be at HANIA, and though she still claims to be “digesting” everything that goes into knitwear she is now Assistant Designer to Anya.
