1992 U.S. Olympic Team Designs[edit]

After viewing some of his sketches, the United States Olympic Committee invited Henry Grethel, American fashion designer, to design and oversee production of both the winter and summer parade uniforms for Team USA in the 1992 Olympic games[1] Separate outfits were designed by Grethel for the opening ceremonies of the winter games in Albertville, France and the summer games in Barcelona, Spain.[2]
