Ready for a sunny coastal getaway?
Where does fashion icon Lorna Jane like to head when she needs some time-out? In this interview, she talks to Deborah about her favourite holiday destination… her house on the Sunshine Coast.
“It’s probably our beach house on the Sunshine Coast, you can get to it every weekend, it’s just an hours drive and when you get there you really exhale,” Lorna said.
“I’m surrounded by the things I love and I can take my dog!”

About Lorna Jane
Lorna Jane Clarkson is the most awarded Fashion 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 took matters into her own hands and started sewing her own outfits while working as a fitness instructor in Australia. Her designs quickly gained a following, with the women in her classes queuing to place orders for her custom-made pieces.
After quitting her day job, Lorna began designing full-time. Demand increased and in 1990 she opened the first Lorna Jane retail store in Brisbane, Australia with her husband Bill Clarkson by her side. As awareness spread about Lorna’s technical yet feminine approach to designing active wear, the brand expanded with new stores opening across Australia every year.
There are now more than 200 Lorna Jane stores across Australia and the United States, as well as stockists in Europe, the UK, Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
