Hello, we’re Teresa and Suzanne Whittaker and we launched our family business in 2012. Our aim at Bella Figura is to help our customers feel good about themselves by providing beautiful clothes that make them and others around them happy. Our classic frocks celebrate individuality, flatter all figures and with their vintage twists are forever in fashion.
We enjoy bringing different creative influences to our business and regularly visit fashion exhibitions, vintage fairs, alternative tradeshows and rockabilly gigs to meet likeminded traders, source unusual suppliers and keep our ideas and stock fresh. Our projects extend well beyond the shop doors and we enjoy working in partnership with museums, photographers, charities and other independent businesses.
We grew up in Matlock only a couple of streets away from our shop and we collaborate with other Smedley Street businesses to encourage a thriving and supportive local community. Find out more about our joint events and activities through our Smedley Street facebook page.
