Grrrl Clothing: Breaking Stereotype Molds

by

“We’re not fighting you. We’re fighting for the freedom of women. We are not what you say we can be, that’s for us to decide. We dance, We kick, We are floral, We punch, We are pink, We are tattooed, We lift, We like unicorns. We like glitter. We like trucks. We can be all the things you say we can be, and all the things you say we can’t. Don’t you worry about us getting too big or too strong, or too fast or too full ourselves. You do you. We’ll do us. We aren’t doing this for you. But if you support us, then we are doing it for us. You, us, we are unlimited.”

I adore all the empowering words on Grrrl Clothing Company’s website, but the above statement really hits home for me. I was a tomboy growing up, yet still loved dressing up and doing most of the stereotypical girly things, but unlike many girls who pursued ballet, I had more interest in flying airplanes and competitive target shooting.

As I grew older, I met more ladies like me, who could blast around on 4-wheelers with the best of the men during the week then don a pair of Louboutins, Jovani gown and charm attendees alongside the most ladylike of ladies at a Saturday evening fundraising gala.

Grrrl Clothing represents ALL girls and ladies. Their high-quality designs are made to fit the body of every woman. Some styles are edgy while others are soft. And what I love the most is they don’t use traditional sizing. Each clothing size is named after an athlete, because like women, athletes are different sizes.

When selecting your size on their website, you’re directed to the photos and short bios of each athlete/size. Their stories are inspiring. Some are martial arts professionals and others are elite bodybuilders and power lifters. And all are different sizes.

I had the opportunity to meet with Kortney Olsen, founder of Grrl Clothing. We sat on her hot pink sofa surrounded by incredible store space on Main Street Las Vegas in the heart of The Arts District. Floor to ceiling murals covered each wall containing photos of incredible women in action. I was motivated just sitting there! Not only did Kortney found this all-inclusive clothing line, but she also continued her passion for helping women and young girls by founding Camp Confidence, a digital-based coaching program focused on the Four Agreements, gratitude listing, and an assurance program.

This passion for young women and girls is what guided Kortney to the B.E. A S.H.E.R.O Foundation, and ultimately how I found myself seated using proper 6’ COVID-19 distancing with Kortney laughing and sharing each other’s stories on that hot pink couch!

Kortney, thank you for donating over four thousand dollars worth of clothing to the B.E. A S.H.E.R.O. Foundation. I can’t wait to get your high quality and empowering clothing into the hands of girls and women who need it most. I’m so glad our life paths crossed and I’m looking forward to collaborating with you again soon!
