ABOUT JACQUIE HUDSON

Hudson is named after creator and owner ex-TV presenter Jacquie Hudson, in a salute to five generations of Hudson great-grandfathers who were tailors. There was a strong connection to her grandmother, Hilda that helped foster her passion for fashion.

After leaving television, Jacquie on a family holiday in Greece discovered incredible label Kourbela and knew that the label with its relaxed aesthetic would resonate with New Zealand women and gave her the inspiration to follow her first love…fashion!

As our in-house stylist, Jacquie brings her passion and incredible eye for style to Hudson and is definitely the go to for wardrobe suggestions and inspiration.
