Founder & Managing Director - Leigh Mason
Leigh started her career in the 80s working for one of the UK’s leading lingerie & swimwear manufacturers. Her passion for good fitting swimwear led her to Queensland to build a swimwear label from scratch, no name, nothing but a blank notebook and a lot of determination!
Leigh has vast experience in all areas of the industry including design, technical, product development and manufacturing, she holds a HND Textiles Diploma from De Montfort University in Leicester, and as the Alumni Ambassador in Australia still maintains her link with the University. Leigh has worked extensively in Europe, Sri Lanka, China and the United States.
Moving to Australia in 1998 Leigh worked for a major retailer in Quality Assurance for three years then in 2002 she established her own consultancy. Throughout this time she assisted many companies on projects such as product range development, technical design, quality assurance, recruitment and training.
As one of Australia’s leading bra and swimwear technical specialists, Leigh has been regularly commissioned by many leading brands to consult on development of their product range. Her experience in developing products that fit, have made her one of the few authorities in this area
Queensland Swimwear Company (QSC) was founded by Leigh in Brisbane in 2008 it focuses on superior fit with unrivalled service and styling advice to clients to find the right style for their shape.
The Right Fit
To offer you the right fit for your shape is a QSC passion. All collections are available in a range of mix and match separates. For a superior fit, Bikini Tops and Tankinis are available in cup sizes – so you now can buy swimwear as you would buy your bra. Bottoms are available in a range of rises; hipster, bikini and full brief to give you the tummy coverage you prefer.
The key to getting the right style is to buy the shape that is right for your body shape – not someone else’s… If you find the right style for your shape you can look, and most importantly feel, a million dollars. Get it wrong and well, I guess we’ve all felt like that at some time in our lives…
The correct choice of swimwear is like putting on the perfect pair of shoes. Would you wear your stilettos to the gym? We cannot all wear every style of swimwear, any more than we can all wear 4 inch heels. Some of us look great in flats.
We want ALL women to feel good about swimwear, swimwear should be fun and our goal is to make our customers feel good. Swimwear is about good times, leisure, holidays, sport and having fun, not something in the back of the drawer you dread having to pull out, never mind wear in public.
Models & Photography
When you look at a QSC design, you should be able to see yourself wearing it, we do not airbrush, Photoshop or digitally enhance photos, what you see is the real deal – straight from the camera. Our model & brand Ambassador is Gold Coast Radio Personality Emily Jade O’Keeffe and we think Emily is an inspiration to all women to put her non airbrushed self out there in a swimsuit – Bravo Emily!
All QSC garments are proudly manufactured in Brisbane. At our design & development studio in Brisbane we develop new designs all year around in addition to our new collections each season. We are very proud to be a member of the Australian Made campaign.
