From studio to street with Miah Madden


Though it’s been years since athleisure made its first sartorial debut, we still all live in our activewear and we wouldn’t have it any other way. But whether it’s tequila, a newborn or many an espresso keeping us up all hours of the night, it’s easy to get complacent when Saturday morning rolls around.

To remedy this, we have carved out a space, called #SPORTMYSTYLE, where we aim to inspire you to find the perfect moment where fashion meets function for your strolls, asanas, swings, and those moments in between.

This week we speak to Miah Madden an actor and student of law who LOVES to move.

Miah’s quite keen on Reformer Pilates but whatever it is, it’s always bike shorts or leggings with a sports bra and tight cropped tank which leave her feeling fresh in the studio.

And for the street, she styles her set up by adding boots and a jacket, or hoodie and slides. Go on, get to know more about Miah below.

Miah wears the Pacific Rory Knit Bra and Caspian Jupiter Pant
