For the petites who’ve ever secretly shopped in the children’s section, or had to alter half the items in their wardrobe to get the right fit– our story is your story. Founded in 2019, Petite Mode is the product of two friends, both under 5 ft 2, who decided it was time to end the frustration of shopping as a petite. Anita and Chong combined their backgrounds in fashion to design capsule collections for people 5’4 and under, without sacrificing style, comfort, or the earth’s precious resources.

 A little bit about us

  • Anita comes from a fashion/beauty marketing background and has recently taken the leap to leave the security of her corporate job in pursuit of filling a distinct gap in the fashion market by bringing a vision of a sustainable petite label to life.
  • Chong graduated from Ultimo TAFE as a fashion designer in 2014 and has had multiple designer jobs. She has been wanting to start her own line for the last 5 years but struggled to find something meaningful with purpose, that is, until now. 

So far, we have developed samples and currently offer very small quantities. Your contributions will help us: Reach more petites, grow our following, marketing, creating a whole range of outfits (this is only the beginning), producing our own prints (currently just solid colours). 

We're small girls that have big goals on kick-starting a movement of trendy petite clothing that doesn't compromise on style. We hope you’ll join us in being part of something that makes petite women feel good, while doing good, too.

 Our Size Guide

Designed on real petites, for real petites. Petite refers to stature not weight. Most people still think petite means skinny when in fact petite has nothing to do with weight. Petite is the term used in the fashion industry to describe a woman who is 5'4 tall or under. Petite women come in all shapes and sizes, whether they're a size 4 or 14.

For being a magical backer you can pick one of many rewards which allow you early access and 30-60% off discounts on the final production. Surveys will be sent out after the campaign ends to confirm what size and colour you want based on the pledge that you backed. 

Please see breakdown of rewards/Bundles (what you will receive):

  •  October (early) - The Kickstarter runs for 30 days
  •  November (early) - Kickstarter ends. Survey to enquire for size/colour and address will happen.
  •  January Production will wrap up
  •  January (mid) - Shipment of stock will arrive to me
  •  January (late) Shipments will go out to all backers

Risks and challenges

There is always a risk in delays when it comes to manufacturing and each garment is also handmade with care. Things that could go wrong include: slow shipment, manufacturer errors etc. We have had a strong relationship with our supplier for a few years and they are proven to be very reliable, prompt, and produce great quality as per our original pattern sample.

Please note that production time for garments take 2-3 months, so the estimated time of receiving your garment(s) will be around January. However, if we get the stock earlier, we will be sure to get it out ASAP to you.

Packages may get lost without the right address, so please double check your address to be sure that it's correct! If packages do not arrive over 2 weeks past estimation, I will ensure I correctly make a solution to get the product to you.
