Geography Sydney, Australia
How she moves Being the cofounder of a start up business means there’s not a lot of time to work out however, I am a fan of working with a personal trainer as their job is to get the best results for your body. Circuits, resistance and strength training are all hard work but offer great results.
Favourite pair of kicks/trainers I love Nike roshes, I have so many pairs for getting about it in. I wear them with everything from my workout tights to ripped jeans and denim skirts. For performance, I love adidas by Stella McCartney Boost running shoes. The technology in their boost sole is amazing. It has the highest energy return (think of that ‘bounce’ feeling) of any foam based sole. You feel like you’re walking or running on air. Boost technology is available in adidas shoes too, but I like to go with the Stella version for a serious style injection.
Favourite piece of kit I have been living in my Paddle Pants by THE UPSIDE. They are a sleek matt black legging with scuba style zips running along the back of the calves. I’ve worn these with trainers to walk and to work out in, as well as with heels to go out in. I’m already looking forward to their next collection dropping next week.
Favourite active wear brand There are so many incredible brands on the scene now, but I am a huge fan of Australian label THE UPSIDE. They are such visionaries and are truly bringing fashion into active wear like never before. I wear their pieces day to night.
Fitness Trends / Predictions Bright and bold prints will continue to be big, but I’m seeing a return to subtle tonal prints and romantic shades, like roses and golds. Ballet / dance inspiration is also coming through strongly so expect to see plenty of leg warmers!
Wishlist Coming into the summer months, I’d have to say stark white fleece in a cropped style that I can throw on over crop and wear from barre to beach.
