Why doesn't the fashion industry design for women to look credible? Founder Cynthia Salim was a young UN professional in Switzerland when she got a big job offer at a consulting firm. As she shopped for this new phase in her career, she realized: it's not that there isn't enough "workwear" for women, it's that the fashion industry still doesn't design for women to look credible.
Citizen’s Mark emerged from and for a generation of uncompromising women: sophisticated, socially conscious, global citizens. In everything we do, we consider how our actions shape the kind of world we want to live in. From sourcing to production to branding, our decisions reflect our values - respect for our workers, our environment, and our diverse global citizenship.
Our Design Philosophy
Inspired by Scandinavian minimalism and Swiss precision, we're one of the few brands that designs to project credibility. We made headlines with just one Italian wool blazer that captured everything we're about: quality, responsibility, and design that projects credibility. Our next endeavor: pushing the fashion industry even further and creating a fabric that should already exist: Better Than Silk.
