We all know the term ac­tivewear, the global phe­nom­e­non of fash­ion­able work­out gear that has tran­scended from gym and yoga stu­dios to ev­ery­day life and for ev­ery oc­ca­sion. Lorna Jane Clark­son is the most awarded de­signer of ac­tivewear and was also the first to coin the term in 1989. Frus­trated by the dull and unin­spir­ing range of gym-wear avail­able for women, Lorna started sew­ing her own out­fits while work­ing as a fit­ness in­struc­tor in Aus­tralia. Her de­signs quickly gained a loyal fol­low­ing, with the women in her classes queu­ing to place or­ders for her cus­tom-made pieces.

De­mand grew rapidly, and in 1990 she opened the first Lorna Jane store in Bris­bane, with hus­band Bill Clark­son by her side. As aware­ness con­tin­ued to spread about Lorna’s tech­ni­cal yet fem­i­nine de­signs the brand ex­panded, with new stores open­ing across Aus­tralia ev­ery year.

Lorna Jane launched in New Zealand ear­lier this year and there are now more than 150 Lorna Jane stores across Aus­tralia and the United States, as well as stores in Canada, China, the UK, Europe, South Africa, Swe­den, Asia and the Mid­dle East. Lorna lives and breathes her brand’s val­ues. She is hands-on ev­ery day, over­see­ing the di­rec­tion of her com­pany, seek­ing in­no­va­tive fab­rics and con­cepts, writ­ing, and de­sign­ing ac­tivewear.

To­day, the Lorna Jane brand stands for so much more than ac­tivewear. It in­spires women around the globe to live their best lives through ac­tive liv­ing and the daily prac­tice of Lorna’s phi­los­o­phy, Move Nour­ish Be­lieve.
