Simone Biles and Athleta are teaming up to develop a multiple-capsule signature collection and, most importantly, to inspire young women and girls to be confident and passionate through their athletics and beyond.
"Using my voice has been very empowering for me and I am grateful to embark on this new journey with Athleta to inspire young girls and women to do the same," Biles said in a press release obtained by People.
The 24-year-old Olympic gold medal-winning gymnast hopes her work with the Athleta will increase conversations surrounding female empowerment and uplifting young women to achieve their full potential, not just in sports but also in their general lives.
"A big focus for me right now is inspiring the next generation of female athletes to dominate in sports like just men, which we honestly proved at the Olympics when women overall picked up more medals than men," Biles said to People. "Because once you are in the spotlight you need to use that momentum."
Although the release date hasn’t been revealed yet, Biles’s collection with Athleta will include active and athleisure apparel designed for young athletes of all levels.
"The opportunity to encourage young girls to reach their full potential and be a force for change is incredibly powerful,” Biles said in the release. “I admire Athleta for their commitment to recognize and support women's individual and collective strength and, together I believe we can help girls to confidently and passionately take on the world in their athletic endeavors and beyond.”
