The Many Faces of Fashion – Bell & Sward



Zanette Bell | Bell & Sward | Co-Owner

“CARTI is near and dear to my heart in a very personal way. My dad was treated at CARTI on two separate occasions for two different types of cancer. I will always be grateful for the wonderful care he received.”

Celebrating the shop + live local philosophy, many Central Arkansas boutiques share a commitment to the CARTI mission that is unwavering. As we look forward to the return of the most fashionable event of the season – Festival of Fashion 2021 – we honor businesses supporting businesses, friends supporting friends and encourage the shop local philosophy. Each shares insight + inspiration for fall fashion. Join the FUN – Festival of Trees on November 19th. Because now more than ever, community matters….

What makes your boutique special? We strive to provide a shopping experience that emphasizes style, attention to quality and detail and customer service that is second to none.

What has been your proudest moment during the pandemic? We will forever remember our loyal customers who called in for curbside pickup, delivery or simply to purchase gift cards to use later. Community supporting community – that’s what we’re all about.

How would you describe your boutique to someone who has not visited it yet? A one-stop shop for men’s clothing from casual to formal in a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere.
