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.
