Mary Fashion: “Behind the brands, our touch” – il Resto del Carlino

Satisfaction and pride. We could thus summarize and imagine the mix of feelings and comments of the owners and employees of Mary Fashion when, in a big capital, they stop in front of the clothing store of a famous brand: that garment – yes, that one – ” I did it”. Yes, because it is from the Ferrara plant (south area, near the motorway exit) that the highest quality products made by this company specifically for the brands celebrated by fashion radiate all over the world. Founded in the 80s by Maria Battaglia, a seamstress who knew how to look far, Mary Fashion then passed to her daughter Emanuela Soffritti who, with her husband Alessio Bonora, made this production reality grow further, bringing it to levels of excellence.

Bonora, the evolution of the company, in recent years, has been evident …

“Mary Fashion is a family-run business, born in underwear and corsetry. Then clothing has taken over, mainly women, with an opening in recent years also to men”.

The turnover?

“Last year we exceeded 12 million, we are at preCovid levels. This year we should reach 14”.

Export is essential for you.

“43% of our production is destined for international markets, starting with France and the United States”.

What does it mean to work for some of the best names in international fashion?

“It is a privilege. For some we create the garments indicated by their stylist, in other cases the design is also ours or, again, the garment itself is designed by our stylists. The materials are sometimes purchased by us, in other cases they are the customers to provide them to us “.

The secrets of your success?

“Flexibility and speed, but also the ability to innovate the production process whenever necessary”.

And plan, too.

“True. We also offer the design phase as a service, that is the modeling, the creation of prototypes up to the sample garments which can then pass on to the fashion show or directly to sales. All within the framework of an important package of services for our customers “.

The issue of sustainability?

“We are following a path aimed at reducing emissions through an energy purification project on the entire production structure. We have acquired certifications, in addition to those of a social nature”.

Are you always looking for internal professionals?

“Of course. We are looking for professional machine operators, (garment sewing), tailoring technicians, technical department and quality control experts”.
