“With extreme sense of pride and corporate and familiar continuity I undertake the double position of President and CEO of Biagiotti Group, positions held through the 52 years of our history by my grandmother Delia, by my mother Laura and by my father Gianni. Our history intertwines with the beginning of the Made in Italy, where my mother has given a determinant impulse. Our story is made of foresighted and pioneering visions which have brought us to be the first ones to present a collection in China in 1988, bringing the Italian Fashion in the Celestial Empire and in Russia in 1995. Our story is made of art and patronage and by important restorations to support and preserve the Italian cultural heritage. Our story is made of values witnessed by the strong connection between fashion and sports. Our story is made of innovation willing to share, through dresses, perfumes, accessories and more, the essence of quality, research and experimentation. As my mother, I conserve a joyful, rigorous and coherent approach in designing the future”, declares Lavinia Biagiotti Cigna.
