Shilese × Sylvia P | Behind The Designs

Shilese's Collection Interview

What was the inspiration behind this collection?

This collection is to unleash your inner artist! I wanted to bring in some exciting textures like velvet for the holidays— and some beautiful hand-placed crystals!

How would you sum up your collection in one sentence?

A fun sparkly sleek, innovative look that not only accents my gymnastics style but also my personality.

Why is this an important message to share?

It’s important because it gives an insight into the new generation of Leos that only I, “Shi”, can produce in style!

In your own words, tell us something you love most about each of your leotards:

Green Goddess Leotard - I love the mystique greens and the mesh back!

Ever Enchanted - I love the pretty velvet red in this leo!

Whimsey Leotard – I love the bright pink with the beautiful flowers!

Blessed Leotard - I absolutely love the crystals, the keyhole, and the stunning crisscross back!

This is your second collection with Sylvia P—how are you finding the experience?

I love this second line! I love branching out with more fun bright colors! And adding their own flare to them.

We’re heading into the end of the year—what’s your favourite part about this holiday period?

I love spending time with the family and doing family activities!

In one sentence, tell us your perfect holiday.

My perfect holiday is a white Christmas with a family dinner and a movie!

And, of course, it’s almost Christmas—what's the perfect Christmas gift you’d give yourself?

A new designer purse!

What are your top three tips for relaxing and recharging during this time:
Resting and recovering my body!, Keeping my mind strong!,Training new upgrades in the gym!
Looking into the New Year, do you set yourself goals? How do you decide?

I set new expectations for myself! Just on what I would like to accomplish for the year!

What’s the final message you’d like to leave with our SP girls?

Never give up on your dreams! Have a fun and happy holiday!

And lastly, what’s coming up for Shilese Jones in the next few months?

I'm taking these next few months to train to focus on my body! So I can be ready for Paris next year!
