LIFEWEAR FAN OF THE WEEK: ASHLEY!

LIFEWEAR FAN OF THE WEEK: ASHLEY!

Meet our Lifewear fan of the week: Roller Derby lover Ashley!

MORE ABOUT ASHLEY:

Q: Tell us a bit about yourself!
A: I’m Ashley, 25 years old and born and raised in a small mining town in the picturesque South West WA. I have worked as a tradeswoman in a Powerstation for 9 years now and also mentor students between year 7 and 10 at the local high school on my day off. 

Q: Tell us a bit about Roller Derby!
A: Roller Derby is one of the fastest growing women’s sports! It’s like rugby but on skates (and there’s no ball)! Most Australian roller derby teams are around 10 years old or younger. The sport is played on a flat oval track about the size of a basketball court. Consisting of 4 blockers and 1 jammer (scorer), 2 teams play offence and defence while the jammer makes their way through the pack of blockers, then re-lapping to start scoring points per opposing blocker. It’s played on quad rollerskates, plenty of protective gear, fast moves, big hits, strategy plays and we all hang out after. Roller Derby is one of the most inclusive sports I’ve been a part of.

Q: Dream holiday?
A: There are too many! I checked off California in January though – skate heaven! I’ll definitely be back. I’ve also seen a lot of Australia in my travels and throughout my childhood! Next dream destination I;m heading to is Uluru in September! It will be magic…

Q: Fave thing from Lifewear?
A: I can’t choose! I want it all haha. I have the collection of the Dreamtime leggings in all three lengths though. The leggings come with me everywhere; they are the comfiest thing ever! Whether I am in transit to new places, skating, running with my dogs or trying some yoga, I’m always in them! I’m in love with the kimonos as well, but winter has already started now!

Q: Are you Indigenous? What do you love about the culture?
A: I AM! Booyah! I’m a Yamitjii/Njamal woman on my Dads side, his father being from the Stolen Generation in the 30’s. I love the culture, but also am sad how much has been lost over time. I love Lifewear purely for that reason of visually bringing culture back into everyday livelihood and allowing everyone to appreciate it. I always love reading back stories on designs and supporting the people behind them.
