LORNA JANE - PIONEER FOR ACTIVE WEAR
Lorna Jane discovered her passion for fashion early on. She crocheted her first bikini as a teenager. In her early 20s, she sits at her dining table every evening after work to design new outfits for her job as a fitness trainer. When more and more students ask where to buy the clothes, the Australian makes a fundamental decision in 1989: Lorna Jane quits her job to devote herself entirely to fashion. Two years later, together with her partner Bill Clarkson, she opens the first Lorna Jane store in a mall in Brisbane - at a time when "active wear" is hardly known even by brands like Nike.
The success of the Lorna Jane articles is overwhelming. When she opened her second Lorna Jane Shop in 1991, a customer bought the entire range at one go. Even today, the founder of the company likes to tell the story of how her husband came home on his bicycle with 25,000 dollars in cash. Since then, the success story has been unbroken: Today, the Lorna Jane label is considered the premium sports brand from Australia for the active woman in general. Lorna Jane products are sold in over 300 of our own shops worldwide.
LORNA JANE PRODUCTS: THREE BASIC PRINCIPLES FOR AN ACTIVE LIFE
The label has always combined high fashion standards with high-tech sports textiles that support women in all conceivable sporting activities. The brand focuses on the three principles: move, nourish, believe - in German: Bewegung, Ernährung und Glaube. Company founder Lorna Jane has achieved her personal goals with the help of these principles and is firmly convinced that this will also motivate other women.
Applied, these principles require every woman to exercise daily, to eat healthy food and to believe in herself. In this way an active and happy life is possible. The right sportswear should help you get the most out of yourself and make you feel good every day.

THE LORNA JANE STORE AT KELLER SPORTS

Lorna Jane Originals, for example, is the basic collection of the label. Premium Tights, Shirts and Workout-Tanks, which offer highest wearing comfort, are the core products of this collection - as perfect companions for an active day. Among them, for example, the breathable "Original Lifestyle" shirt from our Lorna Jane Shop, whose print gives your training a luxurious street style.
With proven cuts and thoroughly tested fabrics, the "original" products are ideal for your running round, a gym session or a quiet yoga session - and of course also ideal for our Lorna Jane Sale.

High quality and an excellent fit and should be an incentive to reach your full potential.
LORNA JANE'S EXCEL TECHNOLOGY OPTIMALLY SUPPORTS THE BODY SHAPE
In order to guarantee a long life span, every single article is tested in everyday use and during sports activities before it is sent to the Lorna Jane dealer. The basis for most products is the specially developed material, LJ Excel. It does not shrink or fade, releases moisture to the outside and dries in record time - ideal for heavy-duty sportswear. Sophisticated microfibre technologies in the fabric also provide optimum support for the body and flatter the figure.
ACTIVE NATION DAY IN 17 COUNTRIES WORLDWIDE
With the help of such innovations, the label tries to motivate its customers to achieve their best through a conscious lifestyle - true to the company claim "NEVER, NEVER, NEVER give up". Company founder Lorna Jane, now over 55 years old, still sets a good example. A few years ago, she started the "Active Nation Day" on her own initiative in Australia, which was intended to encourage women and their families to lead a more active life. In 2019, hobby athletes from 17 countries around the world have already participated in the annual event, which always takes place on the last weekend of September, with hundreds of events.
