Athleisure is the future of fashion!

With current consumers’ desire to balance comfort and style, luxury athleisure (a.k.a activewear or more recently active-streetwear) has fast become an essential part of every fashionista’s wardrobe.

The category has shown major growth in the last couple of years, and will only continue to rise for the foreseeable future. And, as the line between activewear and daywear blurs, more and more fashion brands are being forced to expand their collections in order to answer to the surging demand for high-end athleisure.

The increase in health & wellness awareness has also had a part to play. With the growing number of people aspiring to live a fit and healthy lifestyle, the need for fashion that can smoothly transition from workout to casual attire is more prominent than ever.

This global phenomenon has profoundly changed the way we dress today, and I for one couldn’t be more excited! If I could spend the rest of my days dressed in nothing but exquisitely designed activewear, then trust me I would!

So if (like me) your goal is to find the perfect balance between flair and ease then you’ll want to stay up to date on the latest industry trends. Plus, there’s nothing quite like a new sporty ensemble to make you want to smash your next workout!

Well, look no further! I’m here to make sure you’re well-informed.


With a growing emphasis on environmental awareness, the demand for eco-friendly and sustainable athleisure is quickly rising. Thanks to an increasing number of brands investing in renewable or recycled materials, and cutting environmental costs wherever they can, this evolution will soon set the standard for the future of the fashion industry.
