Anna Molinari and her late husband Gianpaolo Tarabini founded the Italian fashion label Blumarine in 1977. Molinari's nickname, "Queen of Roses," reflects her love of floral blooms. Over the years, Blumarine has become known for its feminine styles, such as dreamy dresses and gowns. Another Blumarine brand signature is animal print. In addition, Blugirl, a diffusion brand for younger women, was launched in 1995.
