Young designer Anastasia Zadorina said the sportswear was made in collaboration with the athletes.

Zadorina says her company will continue supporting the Russian team regardless of the IOC decision on Russia's participation in the sporting event.

"We love them (Russian athletes) a lot, they make great achievements, they really deserve to go (to 2018 Olympics) to this competition. And we will keep certainly support them."

The IOC is re-testing all Russian athletes' samples from the 2014 Games following revelations by Grigory Rodchenkov, the former head of Moscow's discredited anti-doping laboratory, who blew the whistle on what he said was a state-sponsored doping programme.

Russia denies the allegations, saying it is the victim of a politicised campaign designed to besmirch its reputation and curb its sporting success.

The IOC is due to decide next week on the participation of Russian competitors at next year's Games.
