Hello everyone and thank you for stopping by today!
Truly, one of the most fascinating aspects of figure skating is Fashion. How many times have you seen stunning skaters take to the ice and not only Wow us with their amazing talent but also dazzle us with their stunning costumes? Male and Female skaters alike have all done their part to make figure skating the most fashionable sport ever and there is no other sport that even comes close.
When you have a top notch Designer like Vera Wang, creating breathtaking costumes for amazing skaters like Nancy Kerrigan, Michele Kwan and Evan Lysacek; that is a recipe for sheer Perfection! In fact, the designs Vera Wang created in 1992 and 1994 were the beginning of a new figure skating fashion vogue. From the sheer illusion sleeves to the bodice with the basketweave design, worn by Nancy Kerrigan; Vera Wang has left her fashion foot print on this amazing sport.
Especially in the Pairs skating category, we can see some of the most exquisite outfits that would inspire any couples evening wear for the opera, ballet or a simple romantic dinner for two.
Since we have such a rich history of fashion graciously influencing the sport of figure skating, I’ve often wondered why we don’t see more apparel options that figure skaters can wear off the ice? Even if we started out with really trendy t-shirts, hoodies, leggings and sweats. Of course the apparel would have to be made with the highest quality, offering style and affordability as a must have. Based on my own shopping experiences as the Mother of a figure skater, it has been my hope to see a fashionable clothing line come onto the market specifically with Figure Skaters in mind.
Today, that hope has been realized in our new online store front at Pinkskate.com, the place where figure skaters can find the right fashion for their passion. Thank you again for stopping by the Pinkskate blog, the place where you can feel free to join our forum and submit your input. I’d also like to leave you with the encouraging words to love yourself and love your sport.
