One of the great joys of starting up a lifestyle brand, is working alongside highly regarded professionals to not only talk design and inspiration, but to help get the word out about Laguna Pools, and all things pool and outdoor living. Over the past 6 months, we have worked with some key players in the fashion and lifestyle industry, including one of our home grown Aussie favourites, Lana Wilkinson.
A mother of two playful, water loving girls, Lana and her family got to experience the 'Laguna Pools' first hand this Summer, trialling some of our favourite pool and lifestyle accessories. See Lana, her husband Liam and her two girls living the life in her Instagram post.
Lana is a highly regarded Stylist and Australian Fashion Icon whose distinct style and love of fashion has quickly progressed her into becoming Australia's leading celebrity stylist. Lana values her industry contacts and finds the best talent and product to achieve premium outcomes for even the most challenging briefs. We caught up with Lana to ask her what makes her tick during Summer, in our "5 Minutes with Lana Wilkinson" segment below.
