Athleisure wear using artwork that is culturally unique to the Luna Family
As a young girl, I grew-up around artists and athletes: my parents and five older brothers. Father Dan Luna Sr., a talented tennis player (CO Tennis Hall of Fame inductee), and mother Jessica M. Luna, an established Colorado artist, created a home environment that celebrated the joy of creativity on both the court and the canvas. Now I have begun to capture these positive influences in my life by creating Art-in-Motion™ in my new line of athleisure wear, using artwork that is culturally unique to the Luna Family.
I spent many of my formative years playing with brother Mark Luna (tennis pro), and promoting tennis through Luna Tennis, Inc. of Colorado. Tennis has opened doors to amazing opportunities and to a diverse community of friends. Sports and art have had a positive influence in my life, physically, mentally and spiritually.
I wanted to capture the essence of these two wonderful worlds, both of them are very fun and creative, and both require a high level of discipline and excellence. I was passionate about combining the best of these worlds that had enriched my life. What better way than through athleisure apparel you can wear, on and off the court. So, I tapped into a long line of artistic traditions, and family roots, and began to incorporate designs that are based on the sacred, with a Southwest vibe.
I was fortunate to find contemporary talent to make Lunapparel possible, with the amazing skills of Artistic Designer, Jessica Luna (niece), and highlighting the wonderful regional images of Daniel Luna, well-known Colorado artist (brother).
I’ve been blessed to be able to pursue my entrepreneurial spirit, with the unconditional love and support from family, friends and supporters. Enjoy the Luna fashion art experience!
The Luna Family
It was through my family’s involvement three years ago in the USTA Colorado Tennis Association, Breaking The Barriers, !Vive el Tenis! photo exhibit in Denver, that I began to think about other ways I can continue to promote tennis to the Latino community. That is when my vision of Lunapparel began to flourish as an idea. There wasn’t tennis apparel highlighting designs with a creative ethnic flare. So, that’s when I decided, if the William’s sister could be fashion designers, so could I.
