After graduating from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in 2010 Jason worked for a range of different companies over the coming years. During this time he showed work at multiple local fashion weeks and was a finalist in the National Graduate Showcase and in the Graduate of the Year in 2011. His work within the fashion industry and a dissatisfaction with the way in which clothing was made, purchased and marketed drove him to work for himself.
We, as an organisation, believe that as consumers we have the power to shape how businesses work through our choices, our goal is to offer an alternative to the trend obsessed fast fashion models.
We want to offer our customer the opportunity to purchase real clothing that was designed and made with care for them, and the result of an actual creative process.
A continuously evolving product range is released on a bi-monthly basis, we don't adhere to seasonal structures, rather offering new capsule collections on a regular basis.
Every item is made to order when you buy it, and is part of a numbered, limited edition, ensuring as little over-saturation as possible.
We have no seasons, no other stockists, and aim to ensure we have the smallest possible impact on our planet, whether by sourcing as much as possible from local producers where we can, producing every item in-house, or ensuring that the production process generates as little wastage as possible.
Jason Hewitt uses no materials derived from animal products, with the exception of wool and silk. All dyeing, screen-printing, and hand painting is done in house or by local artists.
We make clothes that are for the future, not just for the present.
