Lindsey Vonn And Fashion Industry

American ski star Lindsey Vonn has achieved everything in her career. At the Olympic Games and four-time Ski World Cup winner, the gold medalist has withdrawn from the World Cup after a severe knee injury. During her active career, she was considered one of the best female racers of all time. But in 2019, she has to withdraw from the competitions. The knee injury did not allow racing any further. Since then, she has been heavily involved in fashion. She attended the Met Gala twice and initiated collaborations with the companies Under Armor and Legacy.

Together With The Film Crew In The Mountains Of Utah

The designer Thom Browne was unable to show his creations in Paris this year. So he came up with something special. He entered into a cooperation with Lindsey Vonn. The former ski star took on the lead role in his short film The Wizard of Oz. They created it for the autumn/winter 2021/22 collection. To do this, the team ended up in the mountains of Utah. He gave the reason for the incredible cast of his film that Vonn was an iconic athlete. Hardly anyone can win and lose with such dignity. He has been watching her career for a long time and is aware of her interest in fashion.

Elegant Robe Over The Suit

Lindsey Vonn glides down the slopes with her blonde pigtails in a perfectly cut black and white suit by Thom Browne. However, the film’s star is an extravagant quilted down dress that the designer draped over a case. That shines in a bright yellow. The imposing robe weighed twenty pounds, according to Vonn, and kept the star warm during filming. That is how two stars found each other who, according to their statements, have valued each other for years.

Filming lasted two days. The designer was there the whole time on the mountain and monitored every single setting. Vonn herself has hardly been outside for so long since her resignation. Thome Browne himself seemed little affected by the cold. He was out on the mountain in classic shorts and was the adventurous discoverer of nature. It was important to him to be on the road in style, even in this exceptional situation.

She Still Enjoys Training

Vonn keeps fit even after her resignation. She trains more than she expected. After all, with the withdrawal from active racing, a new chapter usually begins in athletes’ lives. But just in the last year, Vonn noticed how necessary training had become for her. It helped her mentally cope with the challenges of the year. Even the injured knee hurt more if she didn’t exercise regularly. That is ultimately permanently injured by numerous falls. She also started skiing again. It had taken time. Immediately after her retreat, she wasn’t in the right shape to do this. Fortunately, that has changed. Now the new phase of life has been digested, Vonn is feeling his way back to skiing. Now the fans of Thom Browne get to see that too.
