Heather Payne is the visionary and creative force behind the PAYNE brand.

Before creating PAYNE active wear, she enjoyed the good fortune of a career

as a successful fashion model. She has walked the runways for top tier designers and appeared in a diverse

range of advertising campaigns for brands from Gianfranco Ferre to Dolce & Gabbana.

Her image has graced covers and editorials of international publications such as

Vogue, Elle and Harper's BAZAAR. Payne's years in front of the camera developed her

into a fashion industry insider and style expert.

While traveling the globe for work, Payne soon realized that her career as a model

had become a lifestyle. She was on the go 24-7 and needed a brand that could keep

up with her active pace. She discovered there was a gap in the market for high fashion

clothes that performed. Her passion for original designs, great fit and superior quality

led her to start building a brand that catered to her needs -

and the PAYNE collection was born.
