Fashion d. & b.: Anna Molinari

" I belive in the power of contradiction. "
Rossela Tarabini

" Rossella Tarabini (born 1968), daughter of the Blumarine designer Anna Molinari and designer of the collection that takes her mother's name, has an affinity with London. Its street life, the punks on the Kings Road in the '70s, and glamorous Mayfair nights all served as inspiration for her autumn/winter 2005 collection. Tarabini's creations are a mirror to her interests and experiences, and each of her collections tells a story, whether it be of a Russian princess or a rock singer. Her designs range from flirty florals to sophisticated chic - sometimes laced with a darker edge - in chiffon, ruching and lace. Overall, the line has a more eclectic and experimental feel in comparison to the more established Blumarine label.
Born in Carpi, Italy, Tarabini is the eldest daughter of Anna Molinari and her husband Gianpaolo Tarabini. When she was nine years old, her mother and father started Blumarine. Raised in the world of fashion, it was only natural that she should follow in her mother's footsteps.
Tarabini studied arts at Modena's Liceo Linguistico before going to Bologna University. In 1994, after a stay in London, she started working on the Blumarine ad campaigns as an art director. The following year, aged just 26, she began to design a new collection for the family-run fashion house, named Anna Molinari. Recently, Tarabini has resumed her former role as art director of the Blumarine campaigns, while continuing to work on Anna Molinari and another of the company's ultra-feminine brands, Blugirl. " 

I choosed some interesting Q & A from interview with Rossella Tarabini:

How would you describe your work?
I believe in the power on contradiction. I think that from unfinished thinking, new energy spark off.
I don't like "precise", "polished" - I fined confusion much more interesting.

What's your ultimate goal? 
Try to dress all the people I like and admire.

What inspires you?
Beautiful details.

Who do you have in mind when you design?
Usually I start to build my farytales, then I think what the character could wear.
It's not somebody real, it's somebody totally invented.

Who has been the greatest influence in your career?
I have been influenced by lots of people and I will need an entire page to thank everybody. 

What is your definition of beauty?
Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

What's your philosophy?
My philosophy is to keep in touch with myself and to show just what I like.

What is the most important lesson you've learned? 
Not to be arrogant, to be loyal to myself and to have a normal life.
