About Us

Beatrice’s Principles

Beatrice has focussed her business on supporting and encouraging international relationships with likeminded women. Her passion for empowering her customers, giving them confidence to wear colour, is equal to supporting local businesses both abroad and at home. The majority of the garments are made in India, where the workshop has existed for over 26 years. They are now employing third-generation families and supporting ancient skills and specialist craftsmanship.


Beatrice champions slow fashion and is passionate about her brand being environmentally and socially conscious. She hopes that her customers will invest in garments, not just for years to come, but also for generations to come. The brand is committed to designing sustainable products with environmentally friendly fabrics and in all areas of the business, constantly striving towards a more sustainable future.

The Brand Now

A go to for ladies occasion-wear in the UK and Europe, notably for the mother of the bride, weddings, as well as the English social season. With wonderful celebrities endorsing the brand, including the likes of Clare Balding and Joanna Lumley, the appeal has broadened to those who appreciate quality and investment and have an eye for style and colour in their everyday lives.

Where it all began

After two successful textile businesses across the globe, in 1996 Beatrice settled in the UK and launched Beatrice von Tresckow Designs. Largely influenced by her childhood in India, as well as Kenya and Afghanistan, Beatrice’s garments reflect her intrinsic relationship with these countries and their vibrant cultures.

Signature Style

Beatrice von Tresckow pieces are easily distinguished by their rich, colourful, highly textured fabrics with exquisite hand finished beading and embroidery. All the collections are personally and exclusively designed by Beatrice for her customers, whatever their age or size, to delight them with beautiful clothes which are consciously made.

The German Connection

Germany is very important to both the business and to Beatrice personally. The name von Tresckow originates from a German family with an illustrious military history. Most notably, Beatrice’s great-uncle, Henning von Tresckow, who was a staunch opponent of Hitler’s war.

Now, with the UK no longer part of the EU, sadly the Berlin shop has been closed. However our German customers are still able to come and see Beatrice and her latest collections at a number of shows and private events across Germany throughout the year.
