October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Mom’s lives get busy with taking care of their families, that time can get away on them. It is extremely important to take care of yourself and get your yearly check ups, as well as schedule a mammogram if its time…DO NOT WAIT!
In light of Breast Cancer Awareness month we are featuring Nancy Rose Performance, a high fashion active wear woman’s line and her collaboration with Walk the Walk America. A charity that raises money for Breast Cancer research and awareness.
Q1: Tell me about yourself
I spent most of my childhood between school and gymnastics. When my Olympic dreams were cut short by an injury, I turned to my other obsession, fashion. I always knew I wanted to be a fashion designer. I studied art and art history at Penn State, then fashion design at Parsons School of Design.
Also, I have a husband and three amazing boys who don’t stop moving for a second!
Q2: What made you decide to start an active wear line?
After many years of training, both as an elite athlete and designer it became very clear, to fuse my passions together. Nancy Rose Performance combines runway style, incomparable fit, supreme quality and high performance.
Q3: Tell me about Nancy Rose Performance.
Nancy Rose Performance is a collection of beautifully crafted workout clothes. Our clothes perform like champions and wear as beautifully as your favorite designer pieces. Each piece features innovative styling details and is carefully constructed from the finest fabrics. They’re also designed to give you that extra oomph that comes when you’re wearing workout clothes that make the most of your best assets. Perfect for Pilates, barre or yoga, our clothes will inspire you to become your absolute best self. Nancy Rose Performance can be found in select stores around the country and nancyroseperformance.com.
Q4: What is Walk the Walk America?
Walk the Walk began in 1996, when 13 women Power Walked the New York City Marathon in their bras to raise money and awareness for breast cancer. Since then, the charity has grown to include a wide range of Power Walking marathons and challenges across the globe. To date, over 300,000 Walk the Walk Worldwide event participants have raised over $144,000,000 for vital breast cancer research & awareness. Here in NYC, funds raised will be granted to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center’s Breast Examination Center of Harlem (BECH) where over 250,000 women have been screened for breast cancer – at no charge.

Nancy Rose Performance is dedicated to the empowerment of women and strives to encourage women that they are more beautiful, graceful, and powerful than they can imagine. I was eager to work with an organization with similar values
