Remember when power dressing just conjured up images of cushioned shoulder pads? Rethink your image of style and power at the Design Museum’s new exhibition, Women Fashion Power

From Margaret Thatcher to Skunk Anaise’s Skin, find out how women over the last 150 years have used fashion as a form of self-expression, to attract attention and to assert their powder.

Track Sin or Style?

New York Magazine is currently calling US 800metre track and field star, Maggie Vessey, the most stylish woman on the track. What do you think?

After losing a sponsorship deal with New Balance earlier this year,  32-year-old Maggie Vessey, an 800-meter champion from Soquel, California ditched the standard vest and pants for designs that would more  usually be seen on the catwalk.

In an interview with Runner’s World last month, she explained that she had begun collaborating with L.A. designer Merlin Castell.

“I do want to draw attention to the sport and maybe give people who aren’t necessarily interested in track and field a reason to be interested,” she said.”But it is a very authentic expression of who I am, and I now have this opportunity to be able to put that out there, be bold, and take a risk.”

While I used to hate having to wear athletic pants on the track – which felt more Bridget Jones than sleek athlete – I’m not so sure I would have felt comfortable running in these get ups. But we applaud her willingness to stand out and be different. It’s like our#run loud campaign on another level.

We love these #runloud tights

Bin the black, embrace the colour of spring and get noticed with these fantastic tights from Australian brand, Running Bare

After a decade of working on celebrity magazines, I jetted off to Sydney to work for magazines on the other side of the world in 2000. And it was in Sydney that I found my running mojo once again after years of working late on deadlines. After all, how can you NOT run when you’ve got the Bondi to Coogee coastal path to run? Or you can race through the city taking in the stunning sights of the Opera House?

It was also where I came across Aussie brand, Running Bare. Fab running tights, cropped tops and tshirts.

So, I’m delighted to see that they’ve embraced colour this season. Expect to see me out and about in these #runloud tights at a race near you soon.

Why not join our #runloud campaign to get more women running? Find out more about it here.
