Belize was born in 2016 - somewhere between London, Paris and Berlin. This openness is reflected in the designs; they unite French effortless elegance with the British passion for re-imagination.
The meeting of minds comes naturally to Valeska Duetsch, and Fiona Bansal. Duetsch is the creative soul behind the brand. Born and raised in West-Berlin, she learned her trade at Chloé and Stella McCartney, where the two met. Bansal is a Net-a-Porter alumni and designer turned businesswoman with a passion for beautiful fabrics. Their decade long friendship and a shared love for ethnic details has cemented their vision to create chic uniforms for discerning worldly women, who want unique pieces that fuse modernity with traditional skills.
The label draws references from heritage garments and prints from around the world and has sourced a global network of craftsmen, from Italian printmakers to Indian artisans, to ensure the highest possible quality, as well as perfect fit and giving the label a truly international approach. They rely on the very best Italian crepes, silk/cottons and wools and uniquely designed fabrics and prints.
Belize gives modern women a collection that they can wear from the city to the sea, it truly is one wardrobe for everywhere.
