Emilie Gomis

There is a woman behind the basketball player !

At 29 years old and 1 meter 78, Emilie Gomis is at the top French basketball. A European champion, she’s training with her team to qualify for the Olympics held this summer in London. But today the player has traded in her XL shorts and oversized tank for some more shall we say form-fitting clothes...Those of the brand Paco Rabane made by Indian designer Manish Arora.
Hidden under the oversized layers of basketball gear was a more feminine side of Emilie Gomis. And with the determination of an athlete and the help of an ad agency, she revealed that side.
Gomis looked to female icons for inspiration.
From playing basketball on French courts to promoting healthy eating, Emilie Gomis is a talented and motivated woman.
