Meet a past winner: Active Truth
Active Truth was created by Nadia Tucker and Stevie Angel after they saw a need for an activewear brand that celebrated all women no matter their size, shape or stage of life.
Active Truth caters to women sizes eight to 26 including maternity styles, offering high performance activewear plus a swimwear range. The brand shows a diverse range of women in their advertising, all happy, healthy and active - and never photoshopped.
Since launching three years ago, Active Truth has experienced rapid growth with over 50,000 pairs of tights sold to women worldwide and amassing over 70,000 social media followers.
"We are a proud Brisbane business with locally manufactured products,” Ms Angel said. “To receive the CCIQ Award for Outstanding Small Business at the 2018 Lord Mayor's Business Awards for our achievements was very special.
“This award helps us reach more women with the message that ‘healthy is an outfit that looks different on every body’.”
Nominations are now open for the 2019 Lord Mayor's Business Awards.
