PROJECT at the World Masters Games- Merchandise Partner

World Masters Games 2017 appoints official apparel and merchandise partner – February 3, 2016 (click for full Press Release)

World Masters Games 2017 appoints official apparel and merchandise partner
One of Australasia’s fastest growing global performance compression and sports apparel brands, PROJECT Clothing, has been appointed to provide the range of official clothing and merchandise for World Masters Games 2017.

Chief Executive of the World Masters Games 2017 Local Organising Committee, Jennah Wootten, says official clothing and merchandise has been popular at past Games in Sydney and Torino and gives participants a way of taking event memories home with them.

“25,000 athletes and more than 3,000 supporters will be in Auckland for the Games and we know shopping for clothing, merchandise and memorabilia will be high on their to-do list,” she said. “Sales of merchandise is also an important revenue stream for the Games and helps us to deliver a world class event.”
PROJECT Clothing will develop a comprehensive range of branded gear and other goods to be purchased in the lead up to and during Games time. This will include custom designed team wear, training and competition sportswear for athletes, supporters’ apparel and a full range of WMG2017 collectible merchandise.

The initial range of clothing and merchandise will be available to athletes and supporters when the WMG2017 registration system goes live in mid-February, 2016.
PROJECT Clothing Founding Director, Graeme Clarke, says the opportunity to provide all official WMG2017 uniforms, merchandise and the greater retail experience for athletes across 28 sports, their supporters and the more than 4,000 Games volunteers provides an exciting challenge. “From sharply designed training and competition apparel to event backpacks and quality WMG2017 memorabilia, we’re already well underway for next month’s official online registration kickoff.

PROJECT welcomes Gina Crawford- Press Release

PROJECT clothing is excited to announce the signing of 13-time iron-distance champion Gina Crawford of New Zealand. Ahead of the biggest race on the Ironman calendar, the Ironman World Championships in Kailua-Kona, Crawford will make her debut in her custom PROJECT clothing race suit in less than a fortnight. The partnership will see the Kiwi superstar in PROJECT for several years to come.

PROJECT is quickly becoming a force in the triathlon apparel scene with some of the biggest names in the sport choosing to sign with the Melbourne based company. Australian owned and designed PROJECT clothing is the maker of custom technical clothing. Crawford joins an impressive stable of triathlon stars wearing the brand including Luke Bell, Emma Jackson, Ryan Bailie and compression range is the choice of two-time world number one ITU star Gwen Jorgensen.

For owner Graeme Clarke R&D is a key focus and is a big part of the companies overall mission as too is athlete satisfaction. “As a brand we feel it is important to build clothing that is not only sport and race specific but also gender specific – and so when we were approached by Gina to look at working with her on her immediate Kona campaign and beyond – we really didn’t hesitate at all in accepting her into the PROJECT family.”

For the experienced athlete Crawford, the pairing was just what she was looking for. “I’m really excited and happy to be forming a relationship with Project. I am not only impressed with the quality of all of their products which will have me fully kitted for my cycling and running training needs, but how far they are willing to go that extra mile to help me get the best and most comfortable fit for my race clothing. “They are exactly the kind of sponsor I like to get on board with, just so passionate about their products and committed to their goal of making the best fitting and comfortable performance products on the market. I am really looking forward to kicking off my partnership with PROJECT at the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii.”

It’s an exciting time for Crawford who will be aiming for her fifth top ten finish at Kona to add to her impressive resume and for Clarke it’s that experience and knowledge that will help guide a focus on women’s specific endurance range for PROJECT in 2016 and beyond. “Gina has an amazing record over a number of years in the sport and this will allow us to use her experience and focus to develop a women’s specific triathlon long course range to add to our products.” Notes Clarke. “Currently we have produced a cutting edge race kit for Gina to race in Hawaii which incorporates technology from a number of sports to help her increase her performance in each leg of the race. So rather than just one piece of clothing we have made a range that Gina can use depending on the conditions and the situation on the day.”

Crawford will make the journey from her Australian winter base at Noosa but will have help to keep in top shape despite the travel. “We have also supplied Gina with our brand new V2 compression range to help her recover and travel to Hawaii to ensure she is in the best possible condition for the race.”

Emma Jackson partners with Celliant and PROJECT Clothing

Triathlete Emma joins Celliant rollcall

Responsive textile technology for apparel, Celliant®, has inked a sponsorship of Australian triathlete Emma Jackson.

Jackson is 2014 Commonwealth Games medalist, 2012 Olympian and 2010 U23 World Triathlon Champion and joins Aussie Ryan Bailie, and US world champ triathlete Gwen Jorgensen as brand ambassadors for Project Clothing.

Melbourne-based Project Clothing incorporates Celliant textile technology that is reported to harness and recycle the body’s natural energy (heat).

Celliant utilises a proprietary mineral matrix that’s embedded into the core of the yarn.

Celliant is the proprietary technology of Hologenix, LLC, the designers, manufacturers and distributors of bio-responsive fibres and textiles for more than ten years.

Says chief executive of Hologenix LLC, Seth Casden, “We are excited to be sponsoring Emma and working with Project Clothing and their brand ambassadors.”

Project Clothing produces technical performance apparel for a wide range of sports and athletes.

Founder and Managing Director, Graeme Clarke, after years of producing technical performance wear for triathletes and runners, has developed Project Clothing to bring active innovations in apparel to summer and winter sports and the broader outdoor industry.

“Currently our athletes have tights, long sleeve run T’s and puffer vests all with Celliant and the feedback has been excellent,” he says.

The fibre gives superior muscle performance, faster recovery, improved thermal regulation and a more restorative sleep.

Celliant’s technology is suited to the extreme demands of outdoor sport applications in summer and winter clothing, says Australian Hologenix representative, Melbourne-based Richard Braham.

Pete Mitchell and Black Line Race Team Dominate the Track

On April 3, 2015 GB rider Pete Mitchell launched Black Line Race Team, a UK based track sprint team, competing at national and world amateur level. PROJECT Clothing was announced as the official clothing sponsor and is delighted to be working with the professional and hard-working race team based in Manchester. The first event after launch, the SCCU Good Friday Meet, was dominated by Black Line at the Lee Valley Velo Park in London. Pete Mitchell won gold in the Open International Sprint and finished a very respectable 4th in the Super Keirin, a wonderful effort! Well done Pete and Black Line.

Last month, PROJECT Clothing’s own Pete Mitchell (Tandem Pilot) and Neil Fachie retained their kilo and sprint titles at the UCI Para-cycling Track World Championships in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands. This is a fantastic achievement for one of cycling’s nice guys. Pete came up through British Cycling’s Olympic Programmes, specialising in the sprint disciplines at an international level before joining the para-cycling squad in November 2012 as a tandem pilot. A wonderful result for the hard working pair.

 The unveiling of the complete Black Line range will be on the  Black Line team store, which will be opening soon online at Project UK!
