About Us

Italy – the coffee, the wine, the food, the scenery and the gorgeously feminine fashions – what’s not to love?

Now, Molto Bella brings the best of Italian style to New Zealand. Owner Anette Drewery has spent extensive time traveling in Italy and exploring the culture, and just had to bring the classic European styles back with her.

The unique linens and silks are reminiscent of the fashions from the stunning Amalfi Coast and Florence in Italy, and complement the size and shapes of women of any age.

Anette Molto BellaAnette has had a passion for all things European since she discovered her own heritage, and has since owned and operated homewares stores selling vintage and antique European furniture and accessories. Along with this, at her stores in Rangiora Canterbury, New Zealand and Rapaura, Blenheim, New Zealand –  she has showcased an exclusive range of one-off dresses and knits.

Due to the demand of the beautiful designs, made of breathable high-quality organic fabrics, Anette is importing more styles and showcasing them on the Molto Bella site for women to access anytime and anywhere. Our love for fashion shouldn’t be limited to when we get an opportunity to go shopping.

The Lagenlook (layering), is favoured in European centres. The style creates a very distinctive look, which New Zealanders are not used to, but looks flattering and feminine, and is comfortable to wear.

Each piece is selected personally by Anette, who ensures she only orders a small number of each style. It’s important to her that women feel unique in their clothes and have a chance to wear something no one else can have. Stock is always limited.

Molto Bella’s range proves that women of all shapes and sizes can look stylish, feminine and beautiful, whilst being comfortable.

There are so many styles suitable for day-to-day wear, but there are also one-off pieces for mother-of-the-bride occasions.

Anette is always searching for the new designers and is soon to release a top-of-the-line designer range from the Amalfi Coast.

Enjoy exploring the exclusive ‘Made in Italy’ range, made from the finest silks, cottons and linens.

Ciao Bella…
