Co-owner and designer Thali Gottesman added, “We’ve spent a lot of time in this area and with the influx of entrepreneurs, young professionals, and artisans the timing is perfect to launch in this market.“

Hamilton Place general manager Dan Wolfe said, “This a unique brand of apparel for young women that we believe our shoppers will truly enjoy.  The Sienna & Bellini designs are one-of-a-kind and bring a fresh, new, affordable style to Chattanooga.”   

Sienna & Bellini plans to open additional stores in the Atlanta market in the coming months.
