More than thirty years ago, Lorna Jane Clarkson was an Aerobics instructor in Brisbane, Australia. Frustrated with the boring workout fashion of the 1980s, she started making Lorna Jane Activewear. She then started selling items in stores and now she's still committed to activewear but she's also written cook books and is committed to a healthy lifestyle in general.
