Camila Giorgi has always had unique on-court fashion. While most WTA players wear sports apparel by companies such as Nike, Fila, Adidas and Asics, the Italian athlete nurtures her own style by wearing dresses designed by her mother. Since her tennis outfits have always attracted a lot of attention, I decided to make an overview of some of her memorable styles in recent years. All the photos are by Jimmie48.
I created a brief video overview. If you prefer text and photos, you can skip the video and read on.
Giorgi’s mother Claudia is a fashion designer, so the Italian WTA player has the privilege of having custom-made apparel. Her tennis clothes can be described as feminine, romantic, and seductive.
The 29-year-old’s fashion sense hasn’t changed much over time. Floral patterns, lace, elegant curves, textures and accentuating details have defined the Italian’s style for a decade.
The first time Giorgi’s on-court look captured worldwide media attention was during Wimbledon 2012. Then she made headlines by reaching the fourth round and her tiered white lace dress was the topic of all tennis fashion conversations.
In 2021, the world No.38 become actively involved in the fashion industry by becoming an ambassador of Florentine brand called Giomila. The new company produces limited-edition clothing and accessories for women. Their designs reflect the tennis player’s aesthetic, combining pastel tones with black and white staples in a variety of patterned and lace skirts, short dresses, tops and leggings.
All the miniskirts that Giorgi wore at the 2021 Viking International (above you can see three photos from the tournament) can be purchased at the Giomila website. Good news is that free worldwide express shipping is available. Bad news, at least to some of us, is that the skirt costs 245 EUR.
All Giomila items are 100% made in Italy and we can expect that the quality is superior, so that justifies the price.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the tennis fashionista made sure that her masks matched her on-court look. At the 2020 Palermo Ladies Open, she paired her lace face mask with a snake print tennis dress and a beige Maria Sharapova Head racquet bag.
Giorgi started playing tennis at age five, being introduced to the sport by her father, Sergio. She has won three WTA titles: ‘s-Hertogenbosch (2015), Linz (2018) and Montreal (2021).
Her breakthrough happened at Wimbledon 2012, when she reached the fourth round on her second appearance at The Championships. After her successful run at the grasscourt Grand Slam, she made her Top 100 debut in the WTA rankings. Six years later, in 2018, Giorgi reached her first major quarterfinal at Wimbledon, which remains her best Grand Slam result.
Giorgi reached her career-high WTA ranking of No.26 in October 2018.
