March 23, 2013 — On Friday evening at the Sony Open in Miami, world No. 24 Jelena Jankovic debuted FILA’s new tennis dress created by its first Facebook design contest winner, Samantha Swank. The flirty pink design melts into a white border, and (our favorite part!) the back of the dress is apparently inspired by the human spine. The flattering feminine lines combined with the exquisite silhouette make this a great statement tennis dress from Fila.
Currently a junior at East Stroudsberg University, Swank entered the Facebook contest last summer after receiving her associate’s degree in fashion from the Art Institute of Philadelphia. Last night, Swank was able to see her design in action for the first time as she enjoyed Jankovic’s match courtside with her mother and boyfriend.
