JOGGERS, tights, jumpers and even sweatpants will be the dress code for Toowoomba's first Active Wear Ladies Lunch.

Guests will enjoy a delicious long lunch while listening to former Toowoomba woman, wife, mother-of-two, former financier and now entrepreneur Jacklyn Quinn.

Mrs Quinn is the owner and creative director of luxe sportswear label Sport Lé Moda.

She will share with guests her inspiration behind owning her business and how she wants to be the best role model she can be for her daughter.

She will also be showcasing her latest range from Sport Lé Moda.

Her range is described as modern active wear that could be incorporated into an everyday wardrobe. It takes inspiration from the simplicity of French style while incorporating performance, comfort and versatility.

"I am really looking forward to coming home to Toowoomba and showcasing my latest range with Sport Lé Moda," Mrs Quinn said.

"To be a part of an event that is about empowering each other is very rewarding and to be able to do it in comfort in active wear is an added extra."

Event Group Toowoomba decided to bring the active wear lunch to Toowoomba to offer a different outlook on a long lunch.

Organisers said guests could come along in their most comfortable active wear, not having to worry about what to wear. Instead they could enjoy the company of other guests without any bells and whistles.

The lunch will be held on Friday, August 4 at The Office.

Tickets include a long lunch and delicious drinks and are available through stickytickets.com.au.
