As if being a five-time Olympic medalist wasn’t inspiring enough, gymnast Nastia Liukin is seeking to further mentor young girls with an empowering and affordable sportswear collection for young girls ages 8-12. The Olympian has teamed with Warner Brothers Consumer Products and JCPenney to create “Supergirl by Nastia”, which will hit JCPenney stores and just in time for back-to-school shopping on July 20 with prices ranging from $20-$30. The collection will include dresses, tunics, knit pants, signature Supergirl tees, dancewear, fashion leggings, shrug tops and more branded with the Supergirl S-Shield, a symbol of strength and leadership meant to unite young female athletes. “I am so proud to present to girls and moms the Supergirl by Nastia line, which I believe represents not only a fashionable and affordable option, but also communicates an important message of empowerment,” said Liukin. “The Supergirl S-Shield is a unique and iconic symbol that has inspired this collection. I believe it will do the same for girls who wear it.” And with a history of fashionable projects in the past– the gymnast partnered with Vanilla Sky Jeans for a juniors denim collection and was the face of Max Azria for spring 2009 — we can’t wait to see what Nastia has up her fashionable sleeve this time. Stay tuned for more details.
