Collaboration and Innovation

Calling all fashion designers, graduates, entrepreneurs, students and freelance creatives!

Do you have a headful of designs but don’t know what to do with them? Need help marketing your brand? Can’t find a reliable fabric supplier? Struggling to make social media #work for you? Or wanting to make connections with other local designers and creatives?

This is where The New Garde can help you. We’re here to champion you and your creative talent and guide you through the fashion jungle, couture pith helmets and all. 

Here’s how it works: you bring the designs, we’ll provide the support, collaboration and innovation needed to help your brand grow.

Get in touch today for a tour of our rad studio and to meet our founder and mentor, Jodie Hilton.

The New Garde Studio
There is a gap in the transition between being a student and running a (small) fashion business and The New Garde offers solutions to sharing resources, networking, work space issues, accessing mentoring.

Your Studio

Look, a home office is all well and good, if you’re motivated to work hard in isolation every day. But motivation is an emotion, and like all emotions, motivation comes and goes. Rather than trying to muster motivation at home, surrounded by domestic chores all vying for your attention, join us at The New Garde!  

Our studio is kitted out with:

  •  An enormous cutting table for sampling
  • Industrial sewing machines
  • Unlimited business grade internet
  • Access to exclusive online resources (think Branding 101 and Intro to Being a Boss)
  • Adobe Software access
  • A studio space that can be utilised for showings

Best part about being at The New Garde? You’re surrounded by support! There’s our fearless leader and all round inspirational boss lady, Jodie Hilton, who is an absolute genius at branding, marketing, pricing and has endless connections around town. Then there’s the other designers, who have all experienced the same frustrations and pitfalls as you and can offer their guidance, tips and tricks on how to survive in today’s industry.

Right, ‘nuff said. We think our studio is awesome – now it’s time to check it out for yourself.
