Ethical and sustainable manufacturing. 

Established in 1990, TCD has grown from humble beginnings to become a destination fashion label with one store , 290 Pt Chevalier Road Pt Chevalier  09-361-5314 Auckland (open only Wednesday to Saturday 10-4pm) or by appointment.Also an online store catering to girls who have loved TCD forever knowing their sizes. Caroline handpicks styles from other NZ made designers marrying them up with her own label, LaLA, Juna, Jason Lingard, Euphoria. and Sabatini.

TCD clothing makes  women feel fashionable,  and confident.

Our philosophy is to celebrate the curves of women’s bodies, accentuate the positive, and empower curvy women to hold their heads proudly, and feel worthy of fashion. In September 09, TCD lead the way for change in the NZ Fashion industry by being the first ever “plus size” label invited to show at New Zealand Fashion Week, and did so for two more years.

Founder Caroline Marr is The Carpenters Daughter, and continues to lead the Company as Creative Director. Caroline is committed to encouraging curvy girls to be the best they can be...and having lots of fun doing it.
