STEPS TO A DREAM: THE CHERRI BELLINI STORY
Meet Rose, the bright spark behind Cherri Bellini; life, and ‘innersole’ of all things Italian and shoes. With a love of shoes that goes back to high school, she always believed that footwear fashion was for everyone.
During a family trip to Italy, Rose was fascinated by the delicate handcraft of leather shoemaking. She appreciated its artform that comes with a high level of craftmanship
Just as each shoe was individually made, so was the person it was made for.
Seeing a gap in the market, it was time for Rose to leave her footprint and bring Adelaide unique, original, and well-made shoes that made the customer feel as though they were personally made for them.
HEART & SOLE
And so began her Italian love affair to the extent that it motivated her to relocate to Florence and set up home. The culture, the passion and zest for life, where every moment is celebrated was wholly embraced by Rose and her family.
What set her experience apart, however, was that she was surrounded by artisan designers who produced leather shoes of a superior quality. It was the perfect blend. Rose and Italy shared values that were set to be taken halfway across the world, back to Australia.
“I wanted to share what I had discovered and decided to launch Cherri Bellini.”
As a local business, Rose enjoys working with other likeminded ventures. She believes in supporting those in Italy who still use the original craft of hand making shoes. Nothing is mass produced, giving each item that unique tailor-made feel.
“Having lived in Italy and frequently visiting,” she said, “means I am able to spend one-on-one time discussing and designing with the crafts people who make the Cherri Bellini collections. I can ensure everything we handpick are amazingly designed with an impeccable high-quality finish.”
Everything at Cherri Bellini has been handpicked and made exclusively for us using only 100% chemical-free Italian leather - imported directly from Italy to our store in Adelaide and enjoyed by our clients across Australia.
