Topic: Revealing Expozay
Expozay was started by Judy and Tony Alvos in 1976 from an office in Durham Street. As importers of swimwear Judy saw an opportunity to design and produce her own garments. Early bikinis, like those in the Collection, were screen-printed with black outlines and airbrushed with colour detail. The designs and colours were bold and vibrant and had tropical themes. At the height of it’s success Expozay employed as many as 120 people in Tauranga.
