WATCH: Giaan Rooney launches activewear range

She’s an Olympic champion, television presenter, mum of two, and now Giaan Rooney is a fashion designer too!

The Gold Coaster has teamed up with Harris Scarfe to launch an exclusive activewear and loungewear collection for women.

Giaan told myGC the range has been designed for the everyday woman, with a strong focus on comfort and style, along with the ability to mix and match key pieces for added versatility.


“I live most of my life in activewear, like so many us of these day,” Giaan told myGC.

“My belief is as women, if we put something on and we feel supported and we look good, that’s half the confidence battle. If you’ve got your activewear on from the second you get out of bed, you are actually more likely to be active the whole way through your day.”

Featuring a range of earthy green and black tones, Giaan said she wanted to create a collection that incorporated functionality and femininity.

“All of our tights are high-waisted to support us in that area. It’s practical, there’s phone pockets in all of my tights. The tops are designed to mix and match and wear how you want to wear them.”

Many of the pieces in the range are also made from recycled fabrics.

“We have an amazing fabric called reprieve which is made from recycled bottles. As the technology improves, we are looking to incorporate that in every item in the range heading down the track. It’s a wonderful way to make sure that we are sustainable as well,” she said.

The GR by Giaan Rooney collection ranges in price from $39.99 to $89.99 and is available online at
