Judi Limbers
Founder, Managing Director
Behavioural Psychology & Fashion Design

Judi is a Social Entrepreneur with a double degree in Commerce and Behavioural Science, and a Certificate IV in Fashion Design Industry Practice. She founded her first business, Workshop, after she saw a need for young female role models to provide a learning environment that encouraged discussion of issues centred around society’s limited portrayal of women. After speaking to women around the country and overseas for a number of years, she founded her second business, a fashion company, in order to provide classy dresses to young women, as well an educational platform encouraging diversity in body shapes and styles. After many requests, in 2015 she co-launched Valour Workshop, the male counterpart to, with the involvement of her brother.
