Welcome to Citizen Women.
Citizen Women was launched in 2018 by Kinstry Smythe and Jennette Buffett.
With respective backgrounds in visual arts, fashion, retail, and costume for film and television, Kinstry and Jennette came together to create an online boutique, with a focus on designing and making women’s clothes in natural fabrics for sizes 12 to 26.
Citizen Women was inspired by our hands-on experience with customers, clients and people who want tailored, beautifully-made clothing in sizes 12-26. We’re in constant conversation with our community and many of these great conversations inspire how we design our clothes and collections for you.
We believe high-quality designer clothes should be for all shapes and sizes. When we design our clothes we work with fit models of different sizes and body shapes to find the best design and tailoring for our clothes and customers. On each garment’s page you’ll find the garment measurements to help you find the best fit for you.
Our mission is to offer signature designs using thoughtfully chosen cloth to make Citizen Women pieces that are high-quality, timeless and modern. We believe in making garments that will last and stand the test of time and we take responsibility for the full lifecycle of our garments, offering a lifetime repair, reuse and recycle service.
Proudly designed and made in Aotearoa, New Zealand, Citizen Women is committed to moving fashion towards a more environmentally and socially conscious future. We are proud to be part of the collective Mindful Fashion NZ and support the #imadeyourclothes and #memaderevolution. Our carefully wrapped parcels are couriered in The Better Packaging Company ‘I’m a Real Dirt Bag’ a reusable and home compostable courier bag and you may check out with a CarbonClick option.
