A leading name on the world fashion scene, Blufin is the joint-stock company that owns the Blumarine and Blugirl brands. Anna Molinari and her husband Gianpaolo Tarabini Castellani embarked on the challenge in 1977 when they decided to establish the Blumarine company in Carpi, Italy. By the early 1980s, they were presenting their collections in Milan Fashion Week. Deeply rooted in the Italian tradition of fine craftsmanship and high-quality fashion, the company achieved prominence in the luxury market, and, thanks to the excellence and recherché allure of the designs, the brand won the favour of major buyers and journalists, key celebrities and scores of customers.
This resounding success led to the creation in 1988 of the Blufin Group, of which Gianguido Tarabini Castellani is currently sole director. The group’s present goal is to further market penetration of the Blumarine and Blugirl brands at the international level, specifically through the development of an exclusive network of mono-brand stores and global distribution partnerships. Blufin plans to fulfill this primary objective by pursuing high-impact communication campaigns and by signing license agreements in other product categories with top-notch manufacturers. Along with the expertise of a young and dynamic management team and the vast experience of long-time staff members, many who have been with the company since the early days, Blufin ensures all business partners receive the strategies and products necessary for meeting contemporary market demands with the same precision and effectiveness as in the past. Through the years, the group has kept up an impressive growth rate. This is a clear sign of the success of the Blumarine and Blugirl collections, the licensed products, and the distribution strategies implemented in the global marketplace. Another factor behind Blufin’s remarkable performance lies in the high visibility of the Blumarine and Blugirl creations from very early on. Famous top models and illustrious photographers and artists have all taken part in the communication campaigns, and a number of celebrities have made striking public appearances in the designs.
