A brief history of Finamore Napoli…

“In 1925 Caroline decided to set up her first workshop in the historical centre of Naples. She sewed shirts for a select number of customers, using the Neapolitan high fashion rules which regarding elegance laid down the law all over the world.

Those rules and skills were passed down to her son Alberto and his wife, Stefania, who in the 1960s opened their first large workshop in San Giorgio a Cremano, a town bordering Naples. Alberto was gifted with a strong business sense and supported by his wife’s experience ( Stefania also grew up in this trade) turned the workshop into an important company for hand-made shirts.

The mix of culture and highly sophisticated machinery has made this family company one of the most advanced and avant-garde in this sector.

In the 1990s with the arrival of the third generation , there was a real turning point for the company. Simone, Paolo, Andrea and Annamaria grew up among scraps of fabric, the “philosophy” of dressing well, seamstresses sitting with bent heads because they were busy hand finishing articles of clothing on their laps….all this “dedication” has meant that the Finamore company stands out for the style and good taste of its creations and for the beauty that only items of clothing rich in detail such as these are able to give. Today, “ Carolina’s world” has widened greatly  and the Finamore creations have become an important international brand name distributed in the most prestigious and exclusive multi-brand boutiques and department stores all over the world. “ Total look “ collections, made up of completely “ destrutturate” jackets , shirts, ties and accessories are also available.”
