Jo Bennett, Head of Womenswear says, “ We have seen a radical shift in the way we are living our lives, and what our customers now require from the clothes they choose to wear. At the heart of this concept are women who have an incredible zest for life, they are active, strong and enjoy fitness but also enjoy a little indulgence!”
