Aly Raisman talked with GK about her 2016 summer leotard line.
AR: My favorite leotard is the red, white, and blue Freedom gymnastics leotard. With the Olympics coming up, it was an absolute must to add in as much red, white, and blue as possible. I think this patriotic gymnastics leotard is great because it’s for any age. You’re never too old or too young to be patriotic! I think the two red white and blue ones may be the best leotards that GK and I have created yet!
AR: I love the feeling of wearing red, white, and blue knowing that I’m representing USA. I think little girls share the same dream and passion all over the USA, so I hope that wearing these patriotic gymnastics leotards will inspire them to believe that one day they may be out there representing USA too.
GK: Which gymnastics leotard from your summer collection did you find most challenging to design? Why?
AR: Designing patriotic gymnastics leotards can always be a challenge because I create one every new collection. It’s a challenge to make sure that they’re original and different each time!
