No matter what size or shape people are, they just want to look good. That is the premise behind Skinny Tees. Known as “The Diet You Wear,” her shirts will flatter any figure. According to West Bloomfield Patch, Linda Schlesinger’s clothes are becoming a staple in every woman’s closet.
â€œI have a lot of fun with my business,â€ said Schlesinger. â€œAlthough it is a challenge to own and run your own company, I take comfort in the fact that I am able to work in an industry I love while helping women discover how beautiful they are.â€
Schlesinger has worked in the fashion industry for 30 years, first as co-owner of Rainbow Lollipop, a high-end children’s boutique at Somerset Mall in Troy, and later launching Annieâ€™s Antics, a childrenâ€™s knitwear company, and Annie M Designs, a womenâ€™s line.
Schlesinger runs Skinny Tees with the help of seven part-time employees and her son, David, who grew up in West Bloomfield but now resides in California. He handles Skinny Teesâ€™ marketing and public relations.
â€œWhen my mom launched Skinny Tees two years ago, she approached me about developing a company website,â€ he said.
“Initially, I put up a very quick website, but because we received such incredible feedback from our customers, the company really took off,” David Schlesinger said. “I then updated the site to include over 20 styles of bandeaus, tanks and long- and short-sleeve T-shirts that were personally designed by my mother.â€
