About Us


Welcome to Bel Vestito, we’re so glad you’re here!

Translating to ‘pretty dress’ in Italian, the Christchurch based brand was born through a desire to make Italian fashion affordable, accessible & commercial for our market.

Placing emphasis on exclusivity through the use of statement fabrics designed & printed in Rome, each collection features limited edition items that are both modern and timeless, specialising in beautiful pieces for all occasions.

With over 15 years’ International industry experience, spread across Buying, Design, Sales & Manufacturing, I found myself moving home from a life in London to start a family. Having always been very passionate about my career, I had a desire to keep my love of design & Italian fabrics alive (whilst being a full-time Mum) & Bel Vestito enables me to do that.

Looking forward through 2020 & beyond, I’m working across all areas of the business to minimise our environmental impact & I want to share with you the steps we have taken so far…

I’m committed to building our collections with longevity at the forefront of my mind through each stage of the sourcing, design & production processes. I’m passionate about designing high-quality pieces that are versatile & will last. The introduction of our online Outlet allows you to snatch up a timeless piece at a great price, whilst ensuring we remain accountable for excess stock.

Digital printing saved over 40 billion litres of water worldwide in 2019, I’m proud to use only digitally printed fabrics & moving through 2021 I am increasing our sustainable fabric offerings.

Each online order is proudly packed in recyclable tissue, within compostable courier bags purchased locally.

Thank you so much for choosing to shop with us, I hope you find exactly what you’re looking for & that you love it.
