Background: For five years the husband and wife them of Graeme and Kay Fullerton have been pioneer designers of skin-diving suits. They realised that, as with all other forms of clothing, fashion was essential. So, at Surfers Paradise, Queensland, they developed a new process which allowed them to put rubber swim-suits on the fashion map.
The husband and wife design team claim world leadership in both style and colour for their rubber water-wear. They have perfected a process for laminating waterproof synthetic materials with the rubber necessary in "wet suits".
The Fullerton's have a thriving export business for their new-style swim-wear. Because styles vary according to national tastes, often only the laminated sheets are exported to be made up as the buyer requires.
But Australian fashion appeared to have universal appeal when modelled by four attractive girls on the sands of Surfers Paradise.
The advantage of the rubberised swim-wear is claimed to be that they are both cool and warm to the body. One particular attraction about the swim-gear is that they are all guaranteed for three years.
