Swank previously competed in swimming at the Junior Olympics. She was also a state finalist in gymnastics. In 2016, she launched luxury athleisure wear Mission Statement.
Despite her fame, Swank wanted to create a collection that would resonate with the everyday woman on the go.
“I wanted to create something that people could wear even if they just want to work out, that they could out and they could pair the tennis dress with a pair of boots or a pair of heels and have their day,” she said. “Also, I travel so much, you travel so much. The idea of getting an outfit for the plane that’s comfortable but chic, that’s a whole other ball game in itself.”
“It’s a daily reminder, because I don’t wake up and think, ‘Oh, I can do that,’” she said. “I just wrapped a movie yesterday, and every time I take a job I’m like, ‘I hope I don’t eff this up. I hope that I can do it. I can figure it out.’ That goes from my work to who I am as a person. What can I do today to step into my fullest potential? I try to do something that scares me every day so that I feel like I’ve really stepped into my life.”
