About Us


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

Designed in Christchurch, NZ, Bel Vestito [pronounced Bel Ves-tee-toe] offers considered fashion Collections, crafted in beautiful Italian fabrics.

Entering our Spring/Summer 2024 season, we are thrilled to announce that our aspiration is for all 2024 collections to be made exclusively, right here, in New Zealand. We are undoubtedly amongst a challenging time for our NZ fashion industry. Since establishing the brand in 2018, I’ve always had ambitions to move manufacturing home, but the timing to support our local services & economy has never felt more right.


With 20 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 of 2) & Bel Vestito enables me to do that. – Thankyou.


Looking forward, 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 2024 I have significantly increased 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.
