Playful, ethical, original, inspiring. Welcome to the World of Constance Roe.
Photographer and fashion stylist, Belle cemented her professional platform in Tokyo, London and Melbourne: three cities that continually inspire the Constance Roe brand.
Belle combines her passion for contemporary art, design and photography into classic meets cool - functional handbag staples with a twist. Belle has developed a design principle that is playful, timeless and somewhat bold... always taking into consideration the elegant tension between quirky detail and classic, simple shape and form.
Belle says: "I love a bit of luxury, but I'm a hippie deep down inside, so our design process has to be ethical. Limited edition runs produced in a small workshop where the staff are happy. Our craftsmen are treated with total respect - and paid really really well. Style and quality should go hand in hand with good Karma".
We are passionate about fundraising, and raising awareness for an organisation that is dear to our hearts.
Hagar is a specialist aftercare agency that has worked with over 15,000 women and children who have survived trafficking and severe human rights abuses.
Hagar is dedicated to the recovery of women, girls and boys who have suffered extreme human rights abuses and our purpose is singular; to enable every woman and child to live with a future and a hope - with renewed self worth and the courage to again stand tall.
"Whatever it takes, for as long as it takes, to restore a broken life."
Constance Roe contributes 10% of all profits through our Totes Aware fundraising events.
Who Was Constance Roe ?
A Melbourne style icon of the 30's and 40's Constance Roe was a woman of substance. Her classic chic, 'no frills' style combined with her 'beauty with simplicity' ethic is the source of our creative direction. Constance Roe was a model, mother and muse for legendary Melbourne fashion houses Portmans, Sportscraft and Delphine. An exquisitely curated wardrobe, worn with her signature elegance, was admired for over 50 years.
Beauty and longevity.
