Fashion Industry Network

The Fashion Industries Favorite Business Network ...

As a women in MMA (that’s mixed martial arts for those out of the whole fight training loop), I see the need for better mma apparel and gear- for women and men! Its an exploding market and an exploding sport, however fashion has just not caught on to this yet. MMA gear remains to be poorly designed in the way of practical training use. I am determined to help change this. I'm looking for designers out there that are interested in athletic apparel design. I would also like to hear any thoughts, comments and feelings on this....

Hi Elle. I hear on ya on finding athletic apparel that fits and technically performs! See if ellasport ( is something you could wear. Also, tell me about what you need in terms of fit, fabric, etc. Perhaps we have something coming out this fall that you could wear. Our newest pieces are not yet on the site but I can tell you about them.

Thank you very much and I will check out the website- My sister and I own a women's gym in San Diego and we are going to start a retail line of athletic wear. Let’s chat some more so we can discuss purchasing. I also have plans to start my own line for MMA clothing- however I only have concepts and I will need to find a few good peeps like yourself to help with design. In the meantime I use different athletic wear when I train to experiment what works and what doesn't. Nice to meet you and keep in touch! xoxo Elle

Oh that's awesome that you guys own a gym! I have yet to visit San Diego but everytime I see the weather I wish I were there :). NY winter's can get pretty cold. Actually, one of our designers lives out there, though she works for Adidas now, but maybe she'd be willing to do some work with you.

Yes, let's keep in touch :).
