Owner and Director of Wesson Geri Leijon
Director Geri Leijon says…
“My mother was a seamiest from the age of 14 as she attended boarding school and learnt to fend for herself. My mother did alterations for many high profile clients that included the Daniher’s and Fergusson’s (Fergusson Plarre Bakehouse)”
“I trained at Myer and worked in both men’s and womenswear. In 1975 at the age of 26, I opened Wesson Boutique in Ivanhoe with my ex-husband, I then opened another four stores in Ivanhoe and then one in Greensborough and one in South Yarra, with over 1.5K customers lining up for the opening at the South Yarra store”
“Rhonda Burchmore is the patron for Wesson and has assisted with many of our charity events, that include our much-loved runways showcasing our fashion and supporting the likes of charities, Big Brother/Big Sister, The Royal Children’s Hospital and Canteen, we even flew Deni Hines down for the Big Brother/ Big Sister event”
“At the end of the 80’s early 90’s we produced our own labels ‘Leijon’ and ‘Auto T’ that was stocked all around Australia and New Zealand”
“Every week for the first 12 years at Wesson we would go around in a little truck showcasing our fashion and raising money for charities”
