SKINTIE INDIEGOGO Campaign Launched And Raised Already $1689 In 3 Days

iCrowdNewswire - Sep 16, 2015
My name is Christophe Schuhmann, Founder of SKINTIE, Inc, a new fashion breakout reinventing neckties.
I am French native but have been residing in San Francisco for the last 15 years and became an American in 2008, without losing my French citizenship, which is convenient for traveling and business. I have a 9 to 5 job in tech at Switchfly but been able since December 2014 to juggle both activities.
I launched yesterday a crowd-funding campaign on Indiegogo and already raised $690 in one day.
I need the momentum to get going and was wondering if you will be interested in writing an article about this new fun venture.
The video was shot by Thierry Brouard, another Frenchman, living in Newport (Orange County), a talented fashion photographer.
Our models in this video were Jessica Collette and Ty’Kea Trichelle.
I can be reached at 415 515 2209 in case you want to chat a bit.
Thank you! Merci !

SkinTie is a “nouveau” fashion concept, representing a different way for wearing a tie, directly on your skin. The ele­ gantly playful SkinTie can be worn by men, women and kids. SkinTie is a fashion statement identifying individuals in modern and fashionable diverse establishments, like tech, fashion, trendy  hospitality venues…

Designed  and crafted with extreme  care  and  flare,  using the best silks and incorporating other soft fabrics like satin, taffeta, or even jewelry, each skintie, at least at the beginning, will be “made    in   France”   and    imported    back   to   the   States. It is a unique experience of soft elegance.  It is meaningful in way to break codes and give a fun and joyful alternative to the boring conventional, outdated traditional tie tied around your collar and pinching your neck. You can wear a SkinTie for any occasions at work, cocktails and soirees,or even when  practi­ cing sports like golf, tennis, polo, sailing.SkinTie is already offe­ ring a custom made corporate option for high-end restaurants, hair sal!ons,fashion boutiques and airlines…

SkinTie lawyers are currently defining the bases for licensing contract to allow any recognized fashion brand to design and sell skinties of their own. 3% of all profits and licensing fees will fund  non-profit programs.
