TRACK AND FIELD WAS THE THEME AT PARIS FASHION WEEK
DINA ASHER-SMITH and Katarina Johnson-Thompson hit the catwalk recently during Paris Fashion Week.
The British athletes joined a number of fellow Nikesponsored international stars to model clothing by the brand Off-White under the direction of fashion designer Virgil Abloh.
Along with Asher-Smith and Johnson-Thompson, the catwalk models included Belgian heptathlete Nafi Thiam, Colombian triple jump star Caterine Ibarguen, US high jumper Vashti Cunningham, French middle-distance runner Rénelle Lamote, Chinese high jumper Cecilia Yeung and American sprinter English Gardner.
“Sport, like fashion, shares a common language that seeks to unite cultures, break down barriers and celebrate the power of the human spirit,” says Abloh.
“This season, I was inspired by the voice of the athlete and the power of sport to impact positive and transformative change globally.”
