Founder Jodie Hilton was inspired to launch The New Garde to fill Brisbane’s need for a fashion co-working studio. Too often, designers feel the need to move to Sydney or Melbourne to further their careers and end up struggling for years in a larger and more competitive market. Well no longer! The New Garde is a one-stop fashion house that supports the designer every step of the way, injecting the Brisbane fashion scene with new life at the same time.

With a career in design and visual merchandising, alongside a degree in branded fashion and badassery, Jodie is our fashion business leader. Not sure how to price an item? Can’t devise a clear action plan? Need an introduction to reliable suppliers? Jodie’s your gal.

With extensive work experience at Marcs, Sacha Drake, Fashion Weekly Magazine, Kitx and Vogue Australia, Jodie understands what’s required to make it big.

Her mentoring sessions are on point with a six-step delivery method to take you to the runway and beyond. By setting clear goals and having Jodie as your mentor to draw out your inner badassery, these goals will be made all the more achievable.
