What Inspired you to join Loznpoz? Because I love what we represent: Loznpoz is quality, the fit is amazing and I wanted to work in an area that I am passionate about, and that has always been health and fitness. Lora and grew up together on the Gold Coast, and when Lora presented me with this opportunity to work with her I had to grab on to it with both hands.
What made you want to use local products and have your products made locally on the Gold Coast in Australia when you could have been like so many other Brands or Companies that outsource normally overseas to Bali, or China etc?
I love that we have an opportunity to not only design but create great products right here on the Gold Coast using Australian materials and workers to help bring our leggings to life. Lora and I are big on supporting community and small business, and since Loznpoz is a ‘local business’ – keeping it close to home was kind of a no-brainer.
What does Loznpoz exactly stand for? Simply, “Loz” is for “Lora” and “Poz” is for “Paul” (Lora’s husband). This was what their sons and their friends called them growing up and it just stuck. “Loznpoz” is a way for us to stick to our values, and it reminds us that we’re a family company and this is why we do what we do.
By looking at the Loznpoz Designs we see you love to use colour? and patterns? is there a reason for that? We love bright colours and funky patterns, so we’re just making the styles we fall in love with available to the public who, thankfully seem to love them as much as we do. We think that if you feel good, that’s all that really matters and these are the patterns and colours that make us feel good too.
What Inspired Loznpoz to actually include a Men’s Range? We noticed that there was a big gap in the marketplace; it’s a changing world, and men want activewear just as much as women do. Activewear isn’t just limited to limited to women, and it’s important to us to be as inclusive as we can, and to provide good quality leggings to as many people as possible. This too, coincidentally, as why we’re soon be launching our children’s range.
What have you loved most about your Loznpoz journey so far? Flying by the seat of our pants! Both myself and Lora sometimes sit back after a trade show, yoga fest or whatever and just say, “Wow”. After working a ten hour day, we’ll sit down and have a glass of wine together and smile and that’s because we love what we do. And that’s, really, the whole reason I’m here.
How do you like to personally keep Healthy and Fit? I practice yoga and Pilates daily, and walk (when I can fit it in). Excercise is my drug of choice: it keeps my mind clear and my body healthy, and that helps keep me ready for whatever the day might throw at me.
Do you have any of your own Go-To Wellness Tips that you swear by and live by? My motto is “move it or lose it”. And I think it’s important to not be too hard on yourself. Exercise is great but we all need to not take ourselves too seriously and have a laugh every now and again. It doesn’t matter what you do to keep fit – just don’t stop doing it!
Where do you personally love to wear Loznpoz to? Obviously I wear them to yoga and Pilates, but I also love throwing a pair on with a cool shirt and some boots for my weekend. They’re stylish and comfortable, and I think of them not just as my activewear but my streetwear too.
What have you loved most about the creation of Loznpoz to date? The thing I’ve loved most about Loznpoz is how fast it’s grown, and that’s really surprised us. And how much people love it, just like we do. Every day our Loznpoz family grows– we’re only little, we’re just two girls who have been able to keep our heart and soul in it from the beginning– and it’s great to see people loving what we make.
What is a Daily Ritual you couldn’t live without? A morning coffee (a double shot, of course). Then it’s a Pilates class, and then off to work.
What are you Most Grateful for? My family and my friends, and that I get to do a job that I love. Not a lot of people get to say that, and I count myself really lucky.
What things do you love to do that makes you feel happy within? Laugh, shop, and catch up with my girl gang for the occasional dinner (and a drink or two).
What Words of Wisdom can you share for someone wanting to live their own Dreams but feeling a bit scared within? Don’t hold back! Whatever you’re wanting to do – you can’t give up on it. A year from now, you’ll wish you had started earlier.
As we are totally obsessed with Wellness and Spa things at Spa it Girl, can you give us any insider tips of What Yoga or Workout Studio we should try when visiting the Gold Coast? coffee shops? I practice pilates and yoga at Essence of Living and Soul Centre. The best coffee is at Skull and Bones (just downstairs from Essence!), but really I just like to ride my bike and find new places and new things to do. The Gold Coast is like that, there’s always something new to find, and that’s what I like about it.
