The Gold Coast’s luxe activewear label Cleo Harper opens a boutique in Burleigh Heads

Back before the term 'athleisure' was coined, when exercise gear was coated in slogans and graphics, Vanessa Levey decided to do things a little differently. With a background in design and the arts, Vanessa sought to fill the gap in the world of workout wear with something a little more feminine and refined. This was the genesis of Cleo Harper, which has gone on to amass a loyal legging-clad following of folk who cannot get enough of the Gold Coast-based brand. Fast-forward six years and countless collections, Cleo Harper has opened the doors to its first dedicated retail store in Burleigh Heads. more
