Warner Brothers Consumer Products announced today that it is partnering with 2008 Olympic all-around champion Nastia Liukin to create a Supergirl by Nastia clothing line. The clothes will be targeted to 8-12-year-old girls, and will be sold at JC Penney starting on July 20. Supergirl was also the sponsor of The Nastia Liukin Cup held earlier this month.
Some clothing from the line is pictured above, and a couple more photos can be seen on the press release.
The AP called this partnership a "breakthrough for for a world-class gymnast," and went on to say, "In the past, most gymnasts' long-term endorsement opportunities have been largely limited to gymnastics apparel and equipment."
I agree -- congrats to Liukin for making the leap to the mainstream market.
