Jude Ng | Melbourne
JUDE is a contemporary clothing and accessories label created by designer Jude Ng. With a background in the Fine Arts, Jude offers a different point of view in fashion. His past life as a painter influences his work through the unique and off beat use of shape, colour, texture, and the unexpected combination of materials.
JUDE is a sustainable and ethical business conceived out of a mission to put the handmade and artisanal aspects back into fashion and to create designs which are not only trans-seasonal and gender neutral, but also socially and environmentally responsible. The antithesis of fast fashion, JUDE wants people to feel connected to the things they wear, and to write their own narratives with the pieces they acquire from us.
Specialising in clothing and accessories which are designed and made ethically in Melbourne, JUDE creates original and unique pieces in unconventional shapes and quirky proportions. Our love for natural materials and artisanal techniques are combined with our love for contemporary cutting, asymmetry and layering to create soulful pieces for a modern lifestyle.
JUDE caters to fashion forward individuals of all ages, shapes and sizes, with a focus on gender neutral and unisex styling. With a sharp eye for quality and beautiful design, we aim to give our customer ease, comfort and versatility through their wardrobe, while also making a strong style statement. Our evolving trans-seasonal collections allows our customers to add new staple pieces to their JUDE wardrobe each season, building and layering together a wardrobe which is long lasting and built to withstand seasonal trends.
We are involved in the entire design process from start to finish - dreaming up designs, sketching new ideas, patternmaking, fitting and final construction of sampling are all undertaken by us in our studio and shop in Fitzroy, Melbourne.
We believe strongly in supporting the local garment industry, therefore our clothing is made ethically by our talented Melbourne based makers in limited editions. We also produce special edition clothing runs and one of a kind accessories directly in our studio.
