OUR ORIGIN STORY:
Kinga Csilla, born in response to a need for well-crafted, effortless womenswear that lifts the sartorial aesthetic of a day-to-day look and leaves only the gentlest environmental footprint.
Founded in 2016, after 10 years a designer in the Australian fashion industry, creative director and designer Laura Liles launched Kinga Csilla from a desire to create garments that allowed women to present effortlessly-cool everyday.
We exist to actualise a graceful, effortless attitude into clothing. Adhering closely to our values, we make highly responsible use of the resources needed in clothing production and focus on designing collections according to global moods over trends.
We be believe that the tide should rise all boats.
We aim, to work with suppliers that pay workers the national working wage in their respective regions, their contracts permit them to unionise, our factories in India are vetted under HCCP standards to ensure sustainable workplace practices, and we regularly communicate with our workers the makers there to ensure they feel safe attending work.
Where suppliers are less willing to allow for sustainability / fair work audits we strive to keep communication as open as possible and always seek to find suppliers that pledge to pay fair and provide safe working environments.

We are fortunate and forever grateful for their skill and workmanship that allow for the timeless detailing that is the Kinga signature. Every collection is carefully considered in design and made slowly, with heart.
Our production is a time-consuming process where we allow our makers the appropriate time to complete their work, which we know is well worth waiting for.
