Let’s go way back to the 70s where the typical outfit was a pair of running shorts, an old baggy tee, tube socks and your favourite high-tops. The 80s brought out the fluro in everyone thanks to the likes of Olivia Newton John with sweat bands, styling leg warmers and funky leotards. Then came the 90s where a fitness instructor by the name of Lorna Jane Clarkson burst onto the scene. Noticing a serious lack of stylish women’s workout clothes in the market, Lorna Jane decided to make her own!
Now offering an extensive range of stylish, functional active wear pieces, Lorna Jane’s brand is about designing for women by women.
Built on the belief that looking and feeling your best will make you more motivated to exercise, Lorna Jane has created not just a brand, but a way of life. Who says you can’t look great while you exercise?
Lorna Jane has arrived… so invest in you and your active life with the latest comfortable and trend-based LJ styles available now on SurfStitch.com.
