Team England tracksuits for dance world cup 2018

Designs Alike create the UK Teams kit for the Dance World Cup 2018

Early 2018, for the third year running, I designed the kit for Teams England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland competing in the Dance World Cup…the largest dance competition in the world. DWC 2018 took place in Sitges, Spain. In just 3 years we have seen the number of participating countries increase from 33 to 46 and the number of dancers rocket from 3037 to 5841. The UK teams have grown year on year so that’s an awful lot of tracksuits!

Each year I meet with Jo, the Team Manager and, over a cup of tea and a piece of cake in the John Lewis café, we discuss colours and ideas, before I go back to the office to come up with some bespoke designs for the Teams. Jo likes all of the dancers to have the same style of tracksuit but it’s important that each country can be distinguished so the relevant flag is always on the jacket somewhere! Last year we wanted the flags to really stand out so I designed the garments around them and ended up with these stunning tracksuits, crop tops and shorts.

Each dancer is so proud to be representing their country

All dancers who qualify for the Dance World Cup work so hard to achieve their dream and so there is no wonder that they are proud to wear the team tracksuit bearing their country’s flag.
