Hilary took the stage to discuss her new clothing line, Mission Statement, which can reportedly double as both leisurewear and nightclub attire.

“I am so grateful that I had sports as a part of my makeup for a lot of reasons,” she explained. “It makes you realize what your body is capable of doing. A lot of the times women are objectified and trivialized, and when you realize you can be strong, you want to use your body to work towards a goal. Then, also, the aspect of interacting with other girls and learning how to support one another for an end goal. That was a really important makeup for me. It really helped inform who I am today and encourage women.”

“It’s to help women find their own personal mission statement,” she added about the brand. “Or encourage them to take an hour in their 24-hour day to work on their mission statement. Women are so busy, they’re multifaceted, they’re doing a million things, and a lot of times their kids are dong a million things. They want to go from their workout into their day, but not look like they’re in their workout clothes. [Mission Statement is] the first-ever crossover brand.”
