LOS ANGELES, Jan. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Tori Bowie, the 3-time Olympic Track & Field medalist who took home gold at the 2016 Rio Olympics, is also a professional fashion model.
In addition to her exceptional sporting achievements and accolades, the long-legged beauty has recently been in the couture spotlight; most prominently for being featured in Valentino's 2018 Resort campaign, as well as the Stella McCartney x Adidas collaboration.
On Sunday, January 20, 2019, Bowie will walk the runway at Paris Fashion Week for Y-3, the ongoing collaboration label founded in 2002 between Adidas and Yohji Yamamoto; a Japanese designer known for his avant-garde designs and striking silhouettes. Y-3 established and continues to redefine the category of fashion sportswear.
"I feel it is so perfect for me to model for Y-3, and I'm thrilled to be involved," Tori Bowie humbly states. "I personally am a blend of sports and fashion myself, and the Y-3 brand fuses high fashion with advanced sportswear!"
Taking place at the Garage Amelot in Paris' Marais neighborhood, the Y-3 runway show will feature models and Adidas star athletes, who besides Tori Bowie include speed runner Noah Lyles, and skaters Donta Hill and Kai Hillebrand.
In addition to training for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Bowie is currently gearing up for February 9, 2019 - a day when all eyes will be on the decorated sprinter as she headlines the Women's 60 Meter Dash in New York at the 112th NYRR Millrose Games. Airing live on NBC, this is the world's longest-running and most prestigious track & field competition.
