after being present for almost forty years on the international market, at textile fairs and tours around the world, my adventure with Serikos Collezioni & Tessili is coming to the end. On 4th February was founded the new "Serikos 1984 Srl" and will continue the business but without the participation of me and my family.
The words I would like to write and dedicate to all of you who have been an important part of the growth of Serikos and my staff are endless - a simple THANK YOU could never be enough.
I have had extraordinary collaborators, been able to know fantastic places and people, unforgettable personal relationships. I have experienced once-in-a-lifetime adventures, frequented historic ateliers and the most prestigious international fashion catwalks.
I have had prestigious assignments and positions that have allowed me to meet people, institutions and aspects of the system at a national and international level.
I have created collections, developed special fabrics and designs for the greatest designers in the world, having the honour of associating with them and, in some cases, even becoming friends.
I have dedicated myself with passion to the world of education, helping young designers who I have seen grow and find their place in this difficult world.
Our paths may thus cross once more, in a hotel lobby or an airport lounge, during a conference coffee break, at a fashion show or in the corridor at a fair, because this is our world, comprised of struggle and passion, creativity, desire to innovate but always with great respect for the tradition of the History of Fashion and Costume, or else everything would be pure theatricality.
