The daily routine for a busy modern woman is hectic. I know first-hand, keeping fit, running a business and being mum to a 6 year old keeps me moving all day long and changing outfits frequently to always look my best.
I designed Being Apparel to make the daily routine easier for woman who have busy lifestyles, women who love the comfort and versatility of their yoga pants, but need to elevate their look throughout the day. I wanted ethically sourced and produced garments made from luxurious fabrics that I could mix and match as I moved from one activity to another.
I wanted a simpler wardrobe that made it easy for me to look a feel great with minimal effort. I also wanted quality that lasts, not throw away fast fashion.
I couldn’t find a clothing line that delivered all of these features, so using the expertise I gained working in the fashion industry for over 15 years I created one.
