Creating Fashion Icons

Past Events

Wesson has been involved in many prestigious events, fundraisers and fashion shows around Australia. Geri Leijon and her Wesson team have also been responsible for dressing many iconic Australian personalities - from sportspeople to celebrity entertainers. Here are some highlights throughout the years.

Styling Rhonda Burchmore for Stellar Magazine Editorial

Dressing the fabulous Rhonda Burchmore (OAM) is synonymic with the tapestry of Wesson. The talented singer, dancer and actress has had a decades-long relationship with the brand, and has consistently turned to her trusted stylist, Geri Leijon, to dress her for any occasion. Rhonda has also partaken as host and entertainer extraordinaire for many Wesson run charity fundraisers and events.

On her appearance in Stellar Magazine, Burchmore wrote, “Thank you Stellar for the wonderful article in today’s paper. Beautifully and sensitively written by Wendy Tuohy, with fab photos by Nigel Lough and fashion by Wesson Boutique.”

Miss Multiverse Australia

Geri Leijon has been a guest judge on the panel of the Miss Multiverse Australia calendar for a couple of years now, and is always honoured to be a part of an event that nurtures young women to aspire.

As part of their Miss Multiverse Australia journey, the models were invited to showcase their styling skills to Wesson’s own celebrity stylists, by coming in to the Ivanhoe boutique and putting some designer looks together for their junket.

Dressing AFLW star and Best & Fairest award winner, Emma Kearney

The AFLW Western Bulldogs sweetheart, Emma Kearney, was dressed by Wesson for the AFLW Best & Fairest Award evening – and Kearney took out the prestigious medal!

On her glamorous look for the night, Kearney wrote, “WOW – what a week it’s been… big thanks to the lovely Geri Leijon and Helen Robinett from Wesson, the Melbourne styling institution, for dressing me for AFLW Best and Fairest Awards.”

Solaris Cancer Care x Style by Wesson Fundraiser

This was a truly fabulous evening of fashion and style at the Hyatt Regency in Perth, sponsored by Abel Property. The fabulous singers, Sara Macliver and Paul O’Neill opened the evening with the infamous song from The Phantom of the Opera. Adrian Abel was the auctioneer of the extraordinary Willie Creek Pearl necklace which was auctioned off, and a staggering $10,000 was raised for Solaris Cancer Care (WA). It was a wonderful Style by Wesson event with so much love and generosity given by not only our donors, but all the volunteers, models, entertainment, beverage team and so many more people behind the scenes.

Wesson’s 40th Birthday Celebration – Raising Money for Beyond Blue

Held at the Sofitel Hotel in Melbourne at their famed restaurant No.35, Wesson were proud to have put together another successful fundraising event, this time for Beyond Blue and with over 200 guests in attendance. This is one of our major passions and being able to combine fashion with charity is something we enjoy tremendously. We appreciate the support of everyone who attended, as well as our guests, speakers, choir and entertainers. We were thrilled that our own Rhonda Burchmore and The Hon. Jeff Kennett AC (former Premier of Victoria, 1992-1999 and Chair of Beyond Blue) were amongst our honoured guests and friends in attendance.
