About the Brand
BELLANTONI is an independent, sustainable fashion label based in Vancouver whose mission is to help people dress well while being kind to animals, people and the planet. This brand was founded in March 2017 by sustainable fashion advocate and designer, Bianca Bellantoni, out of a need for versatile, stylish clothing that was made sustainably and ethically.
BELLANTONI focuses on thoughtful, intentional design while using certified sustainable and recycled textiles to create each collection. Every piece is handmade in Vancouver, either by the designer, local seamstresses or a local manufacturer. We design elevated business-casual pieces that can easily transition into any wardrobe. Some items are designed to be modular - meaning they can be worn in more than one way - in order to extend the lifespan of the garment in the hopes that they will stay in your closets for years to come.
Dress well, Be kind
Our mission is to helpe people dress well while being kind to animals, people and the planet.
In 2012, Bianca Bellantoni ventured to Toronto to pursue a Fashion Design degree at Ryerson University. Within her first year, she learnt about the devastation the fashion industry has on the environment, and was faced the dilemma of whether she wanted to continue to pursue a career in this industry. Through much contemplation, she decided that the only way to make a change was to stay in it and be a part of the solution.
Throughout her studies, she practiced design with two important components - sustainable and cruelty-free design. In her final year, she created her own innovative fabric scrap embroidery, where she reused her garment fabric scraps and embroidered them back onto her pieces. During this time she worked as the lead designer for a vegan outerwear company, Wuxly Movement (formerly Mammoth Outerwear). After graduation in 2016, Bellantoni decided to move back to her hometown, Vancouver, and pursue her own sustainable and cruelty free clothing brand with a mission to help women dress well while being kind to animals, people and the planet. She has since been featured in the Georgia Strait, CBC News, OMNI News, etc., and has presented to both UBC and Ryerson students about the challenges and importance of sustainability within the fahsion industry.
