Andrea Biani is a New Zealand business, owned and operated in Christchurch since 1996! We source the best footwear ranges from international and local brands, helping women and men to find a great pair of shoes 🖤



Fashionable shoes are what we love and we have both been in the footwear industry all of our working lives. We both started selling shoes when we left school and moved through the ranks to be able to manage our own stores…both at the young age of 21! We met in Wellington and after experiencing the corporate world of shoe retailing, we moved to Christchurch in 1996 and bought Andrea Biani.

Being a part of the local community while raising our family really connected us to our market. We adore seeing familiar faces and celebrating their special moments, like marriage and starting their own families. We are able to be a part of so many special journeys.

Our mission at Andrea Biani is to bring you the absolute best footwear ranges from local and international brands. Sourcing new products for the seasons ahead are often inspired by the people we meet and seeking out new trends that we can interpret to our local market here in New Zealand. 

While we source great shoes from every corner of the globe, our central mission is our own Andrea Biani brand. We work passionately every season to bring you styles that will be loved and worn for years to come, and are always focused on the ethical and environmental processes to do so.

You will often see Vern buzzing around Christchurch in the Andrea Biani van, making sure the store shelves are filled with goodness and that the customer orders are fulfilled!



In 2018 we had an exciting opportunity to bring something special to Merivale Mall. Our modest handbag and accessory store ‘Treasure Box’ had been an exciting business venture since 2006, but we were ready to expand in many ways. In August 2018, the Treasure Box by Biani boutique store was launched, bringing elevated women's fashion brands to the store. Featuring ethically produced, top-quality items from local and international brands, our store is designed around sustainable everyday luxury.

We have worked hard to curate a collection that our customers adore, and are proud to be exclusive stocks of iconic New Zealand brands like Deadly Ponies and Marle, plus internationally renowned brands such as Camilla & Marc, DIESEL and Scotch & Soda. 


Throughout both brands, we are surrounded by a fabulous, hard-working team who all contribute to making this a great New Zealand business. We strive to create transparent and personable brands, delivering the best products and service in our Christchurch and Dunedin stores, and throughout New Zealand with our ever-growing online store.

Thank you for shopping with us and we hope to see you in-store soon!
