Whether you are on the stage or the beach… at the pool or in the studio… STRUT ACTIVE is your only choice in breathtakingly beautiful and UNIQUE Active Wear. We offer small and exclusive ranges in our different designs to ensure you NEVER GET LOST IN THE CROWD.
“NEVER GET LOST IN THE CROWD” is Strut Actives motto and the same could be said for its founder, Christi Massey-Hicks.
After the birth of her second child Christi started to design leotards for her daughter but this “hobby” was not to last. An overwhelming demand for her beautiful and unique costumes soon grew this “hobby” into an unplanned but flourishing business. Her fellow St Marys mothers were the first of her eager clients but were soon followed by other local schools, swim clubs and dance studios.
With a marketing degree under her belt, Christi decided to venture into retailing her unique collection.
Over the past 12 months Strut Active has organically grown into a flourishing active wear outlet with enquiries as far away as Australia, New Zealand and the US. Strut Active caters for children from the age of 1 to a size 40 adult.
Strut Active now stock a full range of active wear including swimwear, leotards, dancewear, rash vests and leggings. Christi has now started to design the Strut Actives boys’ collection which will be launching swim shorts, rash-vests and broad-shorts as well as an adults “gym wear” range.
With both South African and international interest growing rapidly, Strut Active plans to no longer be a small home based business but instead an international Design House.
All Strut Active garments are designed in house, the fabric is printed in Westmead and the garments are manufactured in Summerveld, thus providing the “Upper Highway” community much needed employment opportunities.
