Special Olympics partners to create Be Brave clothing line

Special Olympics has taken another bold step to ensure their athletes are as comfortable as possible while competing.

You look good, you feel good. Then you can perform your best and win a medal in the Olympic competition. The world’s top athletes on the world’s biggest stages all tend to dress elegantly to match their talents. The big bold colors send the message that I’m here to win the event no matter what.

Well, the same can now be said for the Special Olympics athletes and what they are wearing as the push for greater inclusion continues into the world of fashion.

Special Olympics raised the bar once more into that lucrative fashion game by in partnership with Parsons . School of Design to create a new line of sportswear called Be brave. This year’s first edition features both tennis and athletics uniforms. The stealth-looking uniforms were on display at a New York City photo shoot during fashion week.

Appearing in line are four Special Olympics athletes in New York along with two students from the Parsons School of Design. Above all, fashion photographer and Special Olympics Ambassador Nigel Barker is the host of the photo session.

When you look at the clothing line, you notice two things – clothing that has both style and function so athletes can perform at their best. As a reminder, when Eunice Kennedy Shriver started the Special Olympics in 1968, she talked about sport, inclusion and also winning.

Any clothing line created for special Olympics athletes will have to have both looks and even versatility to be usable in the fiercest of competitions.

Fierce competition has always been at the core of Special Olympics. Team Be Brave started off with an impressive win.
