This is something I have wanted to do for a long time now and I’m excited to be joining the BLK family to make this collection something in which we will all be extremely proud.”
Sally added, “The first elements of the range will be in market in September 2020.”
Tyron Brant, CEO of BLK International said: “We are thrilled to have Sally Pearson join the BLK family. She is recognised as one of Australia’s greatest athletes and her values align strongly with those of our brand. This association will enable BLK to continue developing its global reputation for high performance products.”
Sally will work directly with the BLK Design team based out of the BLK Performance Centre on the Gold Coast on the new ranges.
