Anna Molinari

From the street life of London to the punks that overcrowded the Kings Road during the 1970’s to the glamorous Mayfair nights, all of these served as the inspiration for Rossella Tarabini’s 2005 autumn/winter collection. Rossella is the daughter of designer Anna Molinari, which is exactly where the name of the designer’s collection came from.

Each collection of Tarabini’s tells a story (from rock star to Russian princess) and vests personal interests or experiences in one way or another. Some designs are flirty and floral while others are sophisticated chic or even outlining in a dark edge. Ovverall, her line is incredibly eclectic, but in a good way. It is in no way similar to the Blumarine label that her mother established, and actually appears to be more experimental and diverse.
Tarabini was born in Italy and is the oldest daughter of her designer mother and father Gianopaolo Tarabini. She was nine years old when the Blumarine label was started by her parents. With that raising, she quickly became accustomed to the fashion world and followed in the footsteps of her mother.

 

 

She studied first at Liceo Linguistico and then attended Bologna Unieristy. After a brief stay in london, in 1994, Tarabini began working as an art director for the Blumarine advertising campaigns. At the age of 26, the next year, Tarabini began the designs for her own collection, Anna Molinari. She recently resumed her art director role for Blumarine, but has not strayed away from working and designing her Anna Molinari label. She also works on Blugirl, an ultra-feminine brand of the family owned and operated fashion house.
