In 1998 Anne introduced a tankini in her collection after she saw young women wearing spaghetti tops on their shorts. Anne Cole was at the time already famous for her designs on swimwear for women. In her earlier days, she was one of the first female designers of swimwear, in a world that was dominated by men at the time.
