Bella Moda brings new and exciting high-end fashion to Tampa Bay!

Would you consider yourself a “hip” shopper? Someone who searches for the one of a kind, unique and oh so stylish tops and dresses you know no one else will be wearing? Do you peruse Vogue magazine and appreciate the elegant and sophisticated styles you see page after page?  If you answered yes to any of those questions, you must keep reading.

Brace yourselves, fashion forward shoppers in Tampa Bay, there is a new boutique in downtown St. Petersburg in the name of Bella Moda that will exhilarate your fashion senses and fulfill your discerning style tastes. Bella Moda is more than just a fashion boutique, it is an experience. Offering Brazilian clothing and accessories, Bella Moda caters to women of all ages and will appeal to a range of style personalities; from chic conservative to the trend enthusiast.

Currently, Bella Moda features three major world class designers from Brazil: Maria Valentino, Zinco, and Morena Rosa. These featured designers offer a wide variety ranging from young, hip and trendy to conservative yet distinguishing for the superbly savvy shopper. Store co-founder, Rita Papeckyte, who studied fashion design and passionately creates unique designs will be offering her one of a kind pieces in the store very soon as well. 

If you haven’t had a chance yet to experience Bella Moda, located at 30 Beach Drive NE, mark your calendars for their GRAND OPENING event you won’t want to miss! On Saturday, June 25th, Bella Moda will be voicing their official hello into the community by hosting a fashion show in conjunction with a “Heels to Heal” fundraiser. There will be a fashion show highlighting featured designers’ stunning pieces, a silent auction benefiting Heels to Heal, (a non-profit organization that raises donations in efforts to help victims of sexual assault and rape), professional dance entertainment by Fred Astaire, one of a kind painting by internationally acclaimed artist, T.W.Curtis, a performance by Shawn Brown Band and an image/style presentation by Freeway Fashion (you got it, yours truly!). In fact, I will be jet-setting back into Florida from New York City just for Bella Moda’s grand opening. Yes, I’m that excited about having a new fabulous place to shop in Tampa Bay! Bring your shopping appetites and dress to impress. Speaking of appetites, this event will be catered by award winning caterers, Puff ‘n Stuff.

Hope to see you there for this exclusive not to miss fashion event! The grand opening kicks off at 7:00 PM and will last until 10:00 PM.Hmmm, what in fashion’s name shall I wear? Guess it’s time for me to head down to Bella Moda!
