Zakti Activewear is a relatively new kid on the fitness block which only launched in 2015 with womenswear. Since that, they’ve added menswear and kidswear plus linked up with former Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt to launch a dance inspired collection which debuted with a cover feature and interview in YOU magazine (take a look here) in March 2017. Zakti activewear epitomises positive energy so it isn’t surprising I’ve enjoyed working with this lovely London based brand. Over on their blog I’ve interviewed lovers of activewear on how they style their fitness look (whether that is for the gym or a stroll followed by lunch). Take a look below for the best of Zakti’s Getting Active interviews:
Getting Active With LornaLuxe
Fashion blogger LornaLuxe is a girl on the go, you’ll know this after one look at her aspirational Instagram posts, behind the scenes Snap Chat-ing, stylish Tumblr-ng and out and about Tweeting. So between inspiring wardrobe choices through her style posts to slipping in and out of London for meetings and writing on the move, we wanted to know more about her sartorial choices, business tips plus how she stays healthy and active.

Zakti Meets Nina Healthily

We catch up with this naturally stylish adventurer and find out how she does it.
Zakti Q&A with……Mr Plant Geek
Michael Perry IS Mr Plant Geek, quite literally. His love of plants and in-depth knowledge has translated over into a website which not only details everything from gardening advice to special plants but also takes you on a journey around the world to see all his adventures, and the perfect focus for a Zakti Q&A. If you’re getting the impression this is a stuffy gardening blog, think again because one look at his friendly and engaging Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages will show he likes his gardening with a spade full of humour! If he isn’t taking his clothes off for charity (World Naked Gardening Day), you might find him thinking up new slogans for his tongue in cheek fashion range ‘Rude Botany.’
Michael has grown to be one of the top 20 most influential horticulturists (and the The Sunday Times should know what they’re talking about!) which isn’t surprising considering appearances on This Morning and The One Show, so when Mr Plant Geek jet off to New York with a suitcase of Zakti gear we knew we had to quiz him on how he wears his mens activewear.
Zakti’s Active Interview with Belle & Bunty
Hannah and Alice aka Belle & Bunty are always on the go; whether it is designing beautiful gowns at their London wedding dress boutique or searching for the perfect pink door for their beautiful Instagram gallery, there’s no stopping them. They’ve designed dresses for celebrities including Myleene Klass and Amanda Holden but that’s just their day job. Outside of their successful business, Belle & Bunty is also a fashion and lifestyle blog which is fun, flirty and powered by frothy cappuccinos, cocktails and friendship. It’s their knack for styling the perfect outfit and delivering playful captions that have made them social media stars. We spotted their New Year New You Blog post featuring Zakti’s active gear – so we wanted to delve into their life and find out more.
Getting Active with the StylePilot’s Stefan Maurel
Stefan Maurel is a stylish man about town, and he should be considering he heads up men’s online platform StylePilot, a website dedicated to giving fashion and grooming guidance to style conscious men.
