In case you missed it, in August HI-TEC and MOVEPRETTY collaborated in celebration of both brands’ athleisure styles that boasts individuality, celebrates and inspires the strong female spirit. The two brands have a unique synergy when it comes to active living and will continue to explore ways in which they can style women in South Africa in true leisure, street and fitness wear. 

“Why fit in when you were born to stand out!” – Dr. Suess. This quote is what inspired us to reach out to the most inspiring women out there. 

Presenting, the ladies that inspire:

"One of the many things #IAMINSPIREDBY is creating. Creating stories, visual art, photography, journeys,dance and movement."

Mishka Patel (a.k.a @mishka.patel)

"I am inpspired by YOU. YOU, currently reading this. YOU who get up every morning even though it's hard sometimes, and STILL you work towards your dream. You, who are fearless. You who come from difficult or different circumstances and don't use it as an excuse, but rather use it to excel at life.  You, who motivate and inspire me to never stop believing, achieving and chasing my dreams.  YOU, all of you, inspire ME."

BRETT ROBSON (a.k.a @brettrobson)

"#IAMINSPIREDBY Health & Fitness. Living an active lifestyle & being the best version of myself is what motivates & inspires me everyday."

EMMA-JANE HARBOUR (a.k.a @emmajanenation)

"#iaminspiredby people who give a damn ☝🏼 People that move and live their lives with purpose, and who are aware of the world and their place in it. People who care about their actions, and action change not just for now, but for the future."

SINOVUYO MONDLIWA (a.k.a @sinomondliwa)

BAYANDA GUMEDE (a.k.a @bayandagumede)

"I am inspired by women. Women who have the willingness and ability to be selfless, caring and innovative. Women who have experienced hardships but have taken on the challenge and fought for something bigger. Women who have a vision and are not afraid to follow their dreams."

MARCIEL HOPKINS (a.k.a @marcielhopkins)

"I am inspired by my beautiful country. After travelling through Europe for 2 months and being in 3 of our big cities this week: Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg, I can in all honesty say that South Africa will always be my favourite place on earth. I am inspired by our nation's strong spirit and persistence to keep going, even when the times are tough."

THE LADIES FROM ICEKREAM MAG (a.k.a Khanyi & Aya from @icekream_mag)

"We are inspired by BadAss Women! Strong beautiful women that don't require validation from anyone. Unapologetic and honest, women with a good heart, warm and giving. Women that know what they want and aren't afraid to put in the work and get it. "
