Barbett Cortrelli is a South African modest wear brand designed for women by women. This unassuming brand was started by a sister duo, the eldest, Raeesah, who has succeeded the brand as creative director. The brand is now owned by Raeesah and her husband Sameer. 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.
