Mount Olympus Approved

Considering that it is the week of “08-08-08,” it was only fitting that we mention fashion’s marriage to sports. Forbes writes a brief commentary on the connection between the fashion world and the Olympic games.

“Fashion and sports have a lot to give to each other,” says Ligaya Salazar, the show’s curator. “Fashion has the freedom of creativity, while sportswear has the knowledge of the best fabrics to make items functional.”

Whatever the goal, however, be it profit or philanthropy, the opportunity is unprecedented for designers, since the Olympics is an event that everyone, in some way, can identify with.

“Competition, failure, achievement, these are all things entrepreneurs and people on Wall Street deal with on a daily basis,” says Pedraza. “We all understand the feeling of being only as good as your last achievement.

It’s that feeling designers are counting on to capitalize on for two weeks in August.”
