Skinnytees is a collection of tanks and tops for fun, flirty and fabulous women. Started in 2009 by fashion industry veteran Linda Schlesinger, skinnytees was created to quell woman’s most essential need and hardest fought fight…the search for the “perfect tank!” The line began with just a handful of colors and one simple, but perfect, one-size-fits-all style. Soft, seamless and fitted, skinnytees shape, flatter and frame the body whether worn alone, layered, over or under clothing. With over 120 colors and prints and over 60 different body styles including tanks, tees, tops, skirts, dresses, bandeaus, leggings and active wear skinnytees fit any occasion.
About Linda Schlesinger:
Linda Schlesinger is a Michigan-ite who was inspired to create skinnytees (TM) in 2009 when she noticed that women of all ages were looking for simple, sleek tops and there was an untapped market for body conscious yet stylish options that made women look and feel sexy. Being a fashion insider for over 30 years, she immediately knew how to perfect and market the effortlessly chic original skinnytee camisole that experienced instant success and an overwhelming retail reception right out of the gate. Forever young Linda began her fashion career when bell bottoms were still in style (the first time) when she opened Rainbow Lollipop, a high-end children’s boutique. Shortly after, she started Annie’s Antics, a children’s knitwear company and Annie M Designs, a women’s knit line. She has been actively involved in all spectrums of the fashion industry ever since with experience in retail, design, manufacturing, wholesale sales, styling and consulting. After all that, if there is one thing Linda knows well, it is what women want.
What does Linda want, you may ask? When she is not working hard to make women feel sexy, she spends her time giving back to non-profits such as Make-a-Wish-Foundation and “Living Witnesses” where she helped to publish “Living Witnesses, Faces of the Holocaust,“ a photo journal of 92 Detroit area survivors. She has travelled the world with photographer Monni Must creating an international book of holocaust survivors. Charity work is VERY sexy!
