Fashion designer who established Seafolly Swimwear in 1975

Peter Halas arrived in Sydney from Hungary in 1956 and married Yvonne in 1960. Together they established Seafolly Swimwear in 1975 to capture the essence of Australian beach culture. The first customer invoiced was Myer. Halas recalls, “Seafolly was the first to introduce Aerobic wear to Australia when the Jane Fonda exercise craze began. We were the first to offer, and successfully sell, the new type of leotards and leggings.”Peter’s son Anthony joined in 1996, by this stage the company had many private labels apart from Seafolly.
