The 1st Ladies of Football Throw it Back for The Redskins 85th Anniversary

For the football team's 85th Anniversary, the Redskins Cheerleaders decided to pay homage to past cheerleaders by recreating some of their vintage uniforms. The 1st Ladies of Football have almost 55 years of inspiration to draw from- they are the longest running NFL cheerleading organization! 

Line Up designer Michelle collaborated with Director Stephanie Jojokian to remake the uniforms for this year's team. The throwback looks replicated the original vintage inspiration, but were tweaked slightly to match the team's current color scheme and create a  more modern fit.

Former Redskins director Donald Wells and former Cheerleader Ann Marie Ludlow gave us the scoop on the designs from the past years. Read more and check out some throwback photos below!

Homecoming for the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders

Several weekends ago, the Miami Dolphins had their first regular season game, and the homecoming could not have been more rewarding for the team after weeks away from home.  

In the aftermath and recovery from Hurricane Irma, the team's first home game was rescheduled to later this season, and earlier in the season the team traveled across the pond to London, where they took on the Saints as part of the NFL's London Games

Along the way, the Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders patiently waited to debut their new signature uniforms this season. Now the team is back on home turf, and looking better than ever!

Looks We Love: NFL Cheerleaders' Bold Color Rush Uniforms!

Posted by Trista on Dec 20, 2016

The NFL is changing their look and feel with Color Rush this year.  For special games, NFL teams will forgo the traditional white road uniforms and wear color uniforms designed specifically for the Color Rush promotion. The new digs are primarily one solid color, with color accents.  The result is a bold color versus color match up!  

The Color Rush concept began in 2015, with only 4 special promotion games.  In 2016 it's become a requirement for all teams during Thursday Night football games.

NFL Cheerleaders are getting into the action as well, with matching color rush uniforms of their own.  Check out a few of our friends on the sidelines, and their bold new looks!

Looks We Love: 7 NFL Teams With the Most Adorable Junior Cheerleader Uniforms!

Posted by Trista on Nov 4, 2016

Broncos Juniors Cheerleaders

Could you imagine cheering on an NFL football field, performing in front of a stadium full of thousands of on-lookers?!  This is an every-week occurance for many of our pro cheerleader friends, but many young girls get the same opportunity once a year, through Junior Cheerleading programs.  Talk about a once-in-a-lifetime experience!  

Many NFL Cheerleading teams offer Junior Cheerleader programs; where young girls, usually age 4-15, can learn dance fundamentals directly from the pros!  It's a fun and non-competitive program that fosters commitment and self-esteem, and improves talent.  The girls typically participate in a series of clinics, ending in an on-field performance with their mentoring Cheerleaders.   

And did we mention they get their own professional uniforms, usually styled after their Big Sister's outfits?  Check out the fabulous looks some of the Junior Cheerleaders have been sporting this season!

Team Spotlight: Baltimore Ravens Playmakers & Alumni

Posted by Pam on Nov 12, 2015

Last week, we gave you the "behind the design" story for the Baltimore Ravens Cheerleaders' new uniforms. But did you know that there are even more spectacular groups within this organization? We also outfitted the Raven's Playmakers and Pro Bowl alumni this year! What did they go with? Here's a peek:

Playmakers

The Baltimore Ravens have a promotional team known as The Playmakers, who make appearances throughout Baltimore and surrounding areas and raffle off tickets to M&T Bank Stadium. The team is also present at all home games.

We were thrilled to work with Event & Game Entertainment manager, Ilsa, to design a new uniform for the Playmakers! Together, our design team and Ilsa landed on a tank and skirt, a look intended to provide more modest coverage as they make appearances in the community. Sticking with their team colors of purple and black, the top and skirt also coordinates well with their existing custom warm-up jacket- we love the overall look!

Team Spotlight: How the Baltimore Ravens Cheerleaders Perfected Their New Signature Uniform!

Posted by Deb on Nov 4, 2015

Baltimore Ravens Cheerleaders in new white 2015 uniform, The Line Up

Ever wonder what pro teams consider when designing a new uniform? Tina, director of the Baltimore Ravens cheerleaders, had a few things in mind when she came to The Line Up needing a fresh, new look for her team. The ladies had been wearing the same uniform from The Line Up for several years, and were long overdue for something new and innovative!

Changing their look was serious business, and the process took well over a year! Many pro teams want to ensure their uniform is unique to their team brand, to create their own "signature" look. Designing the Raven's uniform was a collaborative effort that involved a lot of discussion about goals, several design iterations, a couple different sample garments, approval from the Raven’s organization, and numerous tweaks along the way!

So, how did they make it happen? Here's a sneak peek behind the design process:
