Kimberly Belmonte and Rebecca Hammond

Belle Armoire

After living in Europe for a year, Kimberly was inspired to open a fashion boutique in her hometown of Orange NSW. ‘Whilst the fashion in Europe was amazing and inspiring, unless you could afford a wardrobe full of Chanel and other high end fashion labels, there wasn’t a great deal available’.

Kimberly shared the idea of opening a boutique with her sister in law Bec who had worked in fashion for a number of years and without question, she was in! They started listing price pointed emerging and established Australia labels they’d dream of stocking in their boutique and as the list grew so did their excitement.

The duo decided to take the plunge and turn the dream into a reality. In October 2010 Belle Armoire was born!
