World-renowned stylist to remain as 'ambassador' 'We have received so many offers from overseas, even from Chinese'
Modena. "I am happy. I'm happy because we sold it to someone who considers us a precious gem. What makes us stay in the Rock, where we were born, where our heart is, and where Blumarin must stay. "
"The Queen of Roses", Anna Molinari, has been quiet since announcing the sale made by Yiananguido Tarabini to farm employees yesterday afternoon and is still thinking big about her creature.
Ms. Anna, November 12th will remain a historic date for the city and for you: after a very long negotiation and 42 years of foundation you announced to the workers selling Blumarine, Carpi's most prestigious brand …
"Marko Marty has always dreamed of Blumarin. For some time now we have been thinking and thinking about what is most appropriate for the company we have created, bringing it from Rock to the World. I'm not too young anymore. First of all, the French groups look at us. Brands have a huge turnover. He is a character of great financial standing and wants to create a center of excellence like Pinot and the other Frenchmen who rob us of all excellence. Do you want an example? … ».
"Gucci has an Italian designer, the workforce is Italian. And Marty came to us asking, "Why should we also take this gem from the rocks?"

We could never do it with our own strength: family as ours matters, but it can't fight giants like Louis Vuitton or, I repeat, Pino. He has instead a very decent financial standing to buy our … jewel. "
How did employees respond to sales news?
"The workers gave him a long applause. There was someone crying because they were afraid that I was no longer there. He spoke very well. He reassured the brand and the factory, saying they will stay here because the rocks will again become a glitter of the past. "
And will you keep coming to the company?
"I'll still be here, certainly as an icon, probably not as a designer. I consider myself one of the symbols of the eighties and nineties. I worked all my life and now I am very happy because I got my reward with this deal. We have not yet explored the ways and implications, but I will remain an image of the company. After all, they recognize me in Paris, in New York … ». –
