Glad that others like the Fleming/Sochi poster (or whatever it is) -- and that her photo and words remain iconic after all these years.
I too have the general impression that Wang sees her skating costumes first and foremost not as a moneymaking proposition, but as a way to give back to the sport and to express support for those who have the good fortune to wear them.

(That said, I wonder whether she ever has declined a request to make a costume for a skater who can afford to pay full price, but whom she does not care to have as a muse. I would not blame her if she did, because her plate already is more than full with her "day job" in bridal wear and fashion.)
BTW, segueing back to the central topic of possible sources of income for skaters:
For some skaters, another type of employment unrelated to skating is modeling. Examples: Becky Bereswill, Taylor Toth.
