Thursday it was my pleasure to shoot Ashley G. for the first time. We worked hard for 4 hours shooting a variety of womens swimsuits, leggings, dresses, and catsuits. She was fantastic and easy to work with. She has natural beauty and a perfect swimsuit figure. It was a joy. I look forward to a long relationship with her. You will see her soon on the website wearing some of SKINZ womens 2015 collection. I apologize for my rough appearance. Us old guys need to shave more often !

10-6-14 : Monday was the date for the swimming competition of the 2014 Tampa Senior Games.
I competed in (4) of the (5) events : 50 Free, 50 Fly, 50 Back and 100 IM. The swimsuit I race in the the SKINZ Speedo style M64. This year my suit was a custom swimsuit made by SKINZ and was made in the Flag Collage fabric 3121. This competition suit by SKINZ has a drawstring so it stays in in all aspects of the race including the dive start.
Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending Tampa Bays Swim Show 2014. Styled in SKINZ attire (Top is G26 and custom skirt), I mingled and networked with leaders of various industries in the fashion and beauty world. Amongst those leaders I had the pleasure of meeting the owner of Luxe Fashion Group Dona Crowley (pictured next to me) who held this beautiful event.
I enjoyed sharing with others what SKINZ is all about from informing individuals about our custom suit department to the variety of suits we offer.
By the way delicious drinks and hors d’ oeuvres were served at its best and I enjoyed every bit of it.
Following the interaction was the beginning of a fabulous swimwear fashion show displaying the latest trends of upcoming designers. Fabulous swimwear styles from neon colors, monokini’s, and crocheted cover ups caught my eyes.
The show case was held at the beautiful Safety Harbor Resort in Florida. I had a fabulous time and will definitely attend again.
Recently I went on a surf trip to Mexico with my surfer friends from High School days. We stayed with Corky Carroll (5X US surfing champ) at his hacienda in Saladita. I used this opportunity to test some of our new neon fabrics in use as Rash Guards. I was easy to spot in the line-up. I was easy to spot by the photographers. I was complimented and nicknamed as well. The Green Lantern and “Franz” after the famous skier who wore very bright ski outfits.
Rash Guards were first developed by surfers to eliminate the chafing (caused by wetsuits) under the arms and around the neck. Coincidentally they do provide extra thermal warmth by reducing the flow of water inside the wetsuit (stabilizing warm water). Also used as a summer shield against the harmful effects of too much sun and abrasions from your surfboard. Reversed seams for smoothness and dolman sleeves for freedom of movement.
Since 2004 SKINZ® Swimwear has been supplying Hooters branded swimwear for their employees and for retail sales in Hooters restaurants across America.
We were excited when they contacted us and wanted SKINZ® to provide Hooters logo swimwear for their employees at the Hooters Casino and Hotel located in Las Vegas.
Orders have ranged up to $12,000. This cooperation between SKINZ® and Hooters® has embellished the brand recognition of SKINZ® in the swimwear industry.
Hooters official merchandising source (Provident) puts out a catalog every year that is sent to all the 460 Hooters Restaurants. This catalog is used by the restaurants to order official licensed and branded items such as t-shirts, beach towels, coffee mugs, and other apparel for re-sale in their restaurant stores. The catalog is managed by a third party merchandise company called Provident Merchandising Sourcing. Dan W. and Susan P. contacted us and asked us to make different style bikinis and cover up shorts for women to be used as uniforms within and outside the Las Vegas Hooters Casino.

Corinna “Cory” Everson née Kneuer (born January 4, 1958),is an American female bodybuilding champion and actress. She won the Ms. Olympia contest six years in a row from 1984 to 1989.**
SKINZ® is proud to have been a supplier of workout wear and swimwear for 6 time Ms. Olympia Cory Everson. When Cory had a photo shoot she would often call us for sexy leading edge swimwear and workout wear. She often mixed the swimsuit tops with the aerobic thong bottoms as you will see in the following images. It’s nice to work with famous people who are also nice people. Cory was extremely nice and grateful for our cooperation.
How many times have you liked a swimsuit but didn’t love everything about it? You might have loved the top but not the bottoms? Or loved the bottoms but felt the top wouldn’t be flattering on you?
