Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Linett, even at a young age, had a knack for being the life of the party and entertaining others. Her mother pushed her to dream big and encouraged her to pursue her creative and artistic talents. While attending Fashion Industries High School, she nurtured her vision in fashion and visual design, where she learned the importance of detail. It was there that Linett began hosting and planning birthday events for her friends as well the school’s annual fashion show. After graduating high school, Linett went on to attend the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut, where she received a Bachelor of Science in Fashion Merchandising. Throughout college, Linett continued to successfully plan and execute events on campus as well as for her college peers.

In 1997, she moved back to the New York City area and was offered an opportunity to work at Macy’s Herald Square where she went on to hold various leadership positions. She was responsible for planning and executing several in-store and private events for the company.
Exploring other opportunities for career advancement in the fashion and retail world, Linett held top managerial positions at Nike and later Brooks Brothers, where she’s been responsible for visual direction, merchandising and overall leadership and development.
Realizing that her true calling was event planning and design, Linett decided to pursue her dream and launched her own business, Lynn Elegant Events.
