The Great Designers: Anna Molinari for Blumarine
"Anna Molinari’s world is one of seduction and charm, great vitality and a spontaneous sense of fun. Her nickname sums her up perfectly: the queen of roses, on account of her fondness for these magical and sensual flowers which represent the image of the Blumarine label and symbolically embody its ideal of femininity."
Anna Molinari was born in Capri, Italy in the 50's. Her muse and teacher was her mother. She was the person who was teaching her stitching techniques and inspired her love for making clothes. In 1977 Anna Molinari and her husband Gianpaolo Tarabini established the Blumarine label. Meanwhile the designer also opened a house that was producing knitwear, a selection of which remains in her collections in the form of sweater girl shapes, sometimes trimmed with diamante. The edgy and romantic style that characterizes Anna Molinari's work was developed later when with the help of the Italian designer Moschino she started designing other garments. She takes the clothes off the street, takes them into the realm of designer clothing and creates the most feminine and sexy pieces.
