Stylerunner founder and young entrepreneur Julie Stevanja is one dedicated and focussed girl boss. Back in 2012 when e-commerce was just hitting its straps, Julie identified a gap in the market. A devoted bikram yogi, Julie personally struggled to find activewear online and this frustration ignited the idea to develop stylerunner.com.
Just like that Stylerunner was born and the world had its first online destination for premium activewear and athleisure. The first three years saw growth of more than 1000% and today Stylerunner is recognised as a global leader in its niche market.
At the helm, Julie continues to guide Stylerunner on its skyward trajectory. With 30 employees and shipping to over 100 countries, it’s a staggering $50 million empire.
It’s easy to understand why we admire Julie for her business tenacity, but she also has a killer wardrobe and a distinct personal style. Welcoming us into her elegant harbour-side home we take a peek at her collection of designer pieces and it’s very exciting.
It’s not every day we get to hang out with an e-commerce powerhouse so while we drool over her signature style and #homegoals pad we implore Julie for some further wisdom.
