Barbett Cortrelli is a South African brand designed for women by woman. The quintessential Barbett Cortrelli woman does not show herself and therefore is apparent. She does not affirm herself and therefore is acknowledged. She does not boast and therefore has merit. It is exactly because she does not contend that nobody can contend with her.
This unassuming brand was started by a sister duo, the eldest, Raeesah, who has succeeded the brand as creative director.Raeesah has a diploma in fashion design from Durban University of Technology.
The name Barbett Cortrelli is derived from the family heritage; Barbett being of French paternity and Cortrelli of Italian maternity. A standing statement to the unique diversity and inclusitivity that the brand represents.
The brand currently has a turban range which is sold and shipped globally to Europe and America. Barbett Cortrelli is proudly South African in its celebration of African and global ethnicity.
