A NEW FITNESS CLOTHING BRAND for women, called Vevie, may help to get us to the gym a little more often. Caroline Greenslade, founder and brand director, started Vevie after a Sunday visit to the gym watching self-concious women exercising in baggy T-shirts. Previously Head of Lingerie Design at Debenhams and with extensive experience in the fashion industry from Agent Provocateur to Playtex, Caroline’s aim is to help women enjoy wearing stylish, performance clothing designed and created for their body shape instead, no matter what exercise they partake in.
From walking to running, yoga to spin, swimming to spa-lounging, Vevie is a brand created to inspire and motivate women to lead a happy, healthy, fit and fun life, looking and feeling confident at all times. Caroline Greenslade said “I wanted to create a range that provides the functionality and comfort required during a work out without compromising on style.”
Split into four ranges Vevie includes Active Indoor, Active Swim, Active Lifestyle and Active Outdoor ranges, each consisting of mix and match separates created to fit and flatter a variety of body shapes, using high end performance fabrics. The Vevie collections is available in sizes 8 to 18 and prices start at £45 for a top. Visit www.vevie.com

KATE MIDDLETON IN CORRIE? No, it’s just actress Helen Flannagan AKA Rosie Webster dressed up as the Duchess of Cambridge.

The Face & Body campaign was launched last year by Atomic Kitten’s Jenny Frost and winners Harry Ashby and Charlotte Kearney have gone on to not only front the clinic’s campaign, but to forge careers in music and television also.
