It’s important that we make a tangible contribution to help empower women on both a global and a local level.

Ethical Manufacturing

Catherine Quin believes in integrity and having a positive impact on the wider community around her.

She believes in creating her garments in a manner that achieves the highest quality craftsmanship but importantly meets the highest ethical standards of manufacturing. As such, she manufactures all of her designs in a small, London-based atelier where her pieces are hand crafted with care .

Charitable Causes

Catherine Quin is committed to supporting charities that support and empower women on both a global and local level.

Partnering with the Women for Women charity and donating to their sister program has great synergy with our own initiative and our values as a brand.

Women of Purpose

Catherine Quin donated 25% of the profits from the sale of the ‘Women of Purpose’ capsule collection to Women for Women International (charity reg number 1115109) a charity that supports women living in some of the world’s most dangerous places to rebuild their lives.

Smartworks empowers women in such a tangible way; it’s proof in action of how clothing can give women immediate confidence to improve their lives. My designs strive to give women that confidence both in and out of the workplace, and as such I feel a great synergy with Smartworks’ use of fashion to clothe women to success.

Women of Grace

The recent ‘Women of Grace’ campaign was created to celebrate and empower the modern woman, inspired by the exceptional women who have remained resolutely graceful in the face of recent hostility, including Gina Miller and Dr Christine Blasey Ford.

Troubled to learn that London now has the worst gender wage gap in the UK, Catherine Quin is donating 25% percentage of profits from the campaign to Smart Works, (charity reg number1080609) which helps and supports vulnerable women get back into work by providing interview coaching and clothing.
