Byblos is a ready-to-wear brand that embraces both the past and the future in a young and contemporary spirit. It is created in 1973 and brought to life initially by the creative genius of Gianni Versace, succeeded by Guy Paulin, and then by the English designers Keith Varty and Alan Cleaver.
In 2002 the Byblos brand is taken over by Swinger International which literally inundates it with its vast experience of Italian tailoring, fabric research and wealth of detail.
In 2006 Manuel Facchini takes over the line's artistic direction: the fashion designer's talent is unceasingly inspired by art, design and architecture, in a creative process that constantly aims towards innovation.
The Byblos man and woman are modern, dynamic, charismatic and independent, alert to fashion but never slaves to tendencies. The menswear and womenswear collections are characterized by clean silhouettes, casual yet meticulous wearability, original proportions, tailored finishes, quality fabrics, researched colors, fabric mixes, innovative workmanship, sophisticated prints, and careful attention to details and accessories.
Laura Biagiotti was studying at the university of Rome, dreaming of eventually working in archeology, when she started helping out her mother in her dressmaking business. The company produced high- fashion clothes for the time best Designers. In 1965 she made a deal with an experienced designer, Angelo Tarlazzi, to produce ready-to-wear clothes for women under her own name.
The first line, shown in 1972, was very successful. She used a very special yarn to create her revolutionary new garments - cashmere. It's true to say that cashmere, along with her devotion to elegant simplicity, was the key to her success.
Taking the meaning of “ready-to-wear” literally, Laura Biagiotti was determined to produce flattering, comfortable clothes for women. She soon gained legions of devoted followers thanks to her soft tailoring and loose-fitting dresses distinguished by their tiny pleats, top-stitching, and ajoureè work. Every Biagiotti collection includes a series of comfortable "baby doll" dresses, and pants often have elasticated waists.
Biagiotti is known for trying on designs herself, and insisting that her collaborators also try them on, standing, sitting, and walking, until she is sure that each and every model is practical and comfortable. These principles apply to every collection she creates.
For children she launched Laura Biagiotti Junior (now Laura Biagiotti Dolls, in collaboration with Trudi): and it's clear that her philosophy is to get as close to kids as possible, creating a child- friendly world.
Biagiotti also turn edher attention to accessories and now there are Laura Biagiotti sunglasses, bags, shoes, underwear, home accessories and perfumes, Roma being the most well-known.

Established in the year 1977, Blufin – a leading name on the world fashion scene - is a company that owns Blumarine and Blugirl brands. Anna Molinari and her husband Gianpaolo Tarabini Castellani embarked the challenge when they decided to establish the Blumarine Company in Carpi, Italy.
Deeply rooted in the Italian tradition of craftsmanship and high quality fashion, the company achieved prominence in the luxury market and due to the excellence of the designs the brand won the favor of major buyers and journalists, key celebrities and scores of customers. Through the years, the group has kept up an impressive growth rate thanks of the success of the Blumarine and Blugirl collections.
Blugirl was introduced in 1995 as a ready-to-wear line for young women. A romantic inspiration with a playful ironic twist. Designed by Anna Molinari, it expresses a feminine ideal at once true to the Blumarine spirit and open to fanciful reinterpretation. Glamour fashion with its very own personality and originality.
The Blugirl line was immediately seen as a younger range able to express the same values as the main line yet in a more playful, irreverent and humorous style. Nothing is taken too seriously and everything is constantly toned down and reinvented. The Blugirl style is expressed in unexpectedly, eccentrically and extrovertly.
The collection has moved on from offering clothes for the young and very young to being a more complete modern line, dedicated to girls who have since grown into women yet do not want to give up the humour.
Blugirl is positioned in a slightly lower price and market segment than Blumarine. The quality and innovation, crafted manufacture and materials are at the same very high level of all the Blufin group brands..
Who likes Blugirl? A romantic modern young woman who loves expressing her femininity with good taste refinement and discernment.
