The story of the Fureco furriers, always linked to the name of the Gavazzi family, began in the 1920s thanks to the desire to renew and reconstruct that characterized the post-war period.
In 1919 Cesare Gavazzi opened, in Seregno in the Milan province, a shop selling furs and leather goods, of his own production, in a very short time creating such a business that by the ‘50s, also thanks to the financial boom, grew from a small retailer to an important furs wholesaler.
In the ‘70s Gavazzi made his debut at the most important trade fairs presenting his own brand. Since then up to the new millennium Fureco has seen constant growth. Various big names in fashion have entrusted the production of their fur garments to the firm in Seregno.
After the death of Mister Cesare in 2011 his three sons Cesare, Fabio and Alberto, respectively in charge of administration, design and sales, have together firmly taken over the reins to give the business a fresh boost. In September 2012, concurrent with Milan Fashion Week, the Gavazzi brothers inaugurated the elegant Fureco showroom on Via Montenapoleone in the Milanese fashion quadrangle, a fantastic venue composed of two splendid salons with ceilings featuring frescos of the 1700s, that provide an ideal framework for the precious Fabio Gavazzi models.
Fall Winter Collections 2013/2014
The 2013/2014 collection from Fabio Gavazzi presented at the latest edition of Mifur features clean lines, horizontal and irregular cuts with a mixture of furs in different tones. Mink in natural shades of lunar colours as well as sable, chinchilla, Swakara and fox in pale and powdery tints for models in minimal style that blend modernity with tradition.
Italian quality, style and workmanship are the strong points with which the firm has conquered the world’s leading markets, above al Russia and then Korea. Now the Gavazzi brothers are focusing on China as their next objective.
To the first Fabio Gavazzi tailor-made line have gradually been added two other more youthful collections, Mavina and Xuodoux, designed for boutique stores.
