Lorna Jane Clarkson

It takes a special kind of vision to spot a gap in the market, to follow your instinct, develop a skill and grasp an opportunity with both hands.

Over thirty years ago, Lorna Jane Clarkson was an Aerobics instructor in Brisbane, Australia. Frustrated with the boring and unflattering workout fashion of the 1980s, she took a pair of scissors to her favourite swimsuit to discover how it was made, and so the first ever piece of Lorna Jane Activewear began to take shape. Lorna’s Aerobics students took notice of her designs and started asking for custom orders. Soon, overwhelming demand lead to opening the first Lorna Jane store.

Since coining the term Activewear, Lorna has spent three decades learning, evolving, listening and leading the way in product design and the normalisation of wearing Activewear everywhere.

With an enviable A-List celebrity client list and having offices in Sydney, New York, LA, London, Paris and Tokyo, the SAMANTHA WILLS jewellery brand grew to a $12 million empire. She was named a ‘Break Out Star’ by The New York Times.
