Today, Wednesday, 2 August 2023 –Tema Moda appoints Caterina Nesci as an owner and partner of the company, effective immediately.
In less than 12 months of working with the brand, Caterina recognised the unique essence that sets this Italian fashion label apart.
Tema Moda is rapidly emerging as a leader in the luxury fashion industry, with a strong focus on sustainability and women's clothing. The brand is dedicated to creating beautiful and timeless garments using eco-friendly materials and production methods that prioritise environmental preservation. Each collection is meticulously designed and handcrafted by skilled artisans in Italy, ensuring impeccable quality and attention to detail.
With a commitment to sustainable practices, Tema Moda exclusively utilises top-quality materials that meet the highest standards of excellence. Their mission is to bring a touch of Italian luxury into their customers' wardrobes while instilling confidence and enhancing beauty.
Roberta Marchesini, the CEO of Tema Moda, expressed her excitement about Caterina's decision to invest in the brand. As a family-owned business turned thriving company, Tema Moda values shared vision and aligning principles. Both Caterina and Roberta understand the intricacies of fashion and have experienced similar upbringings, which further strengthens their dedication to delivering the very best in clothing.
This new development signifies an exciting chapter for Tema Moda as they continue their journey towards sustainable excellence. Now as business partners, the team acknowledged that this is a huge milestone for the business.
Roberta commented, “We are delighted to welcome Caterina to our partnership team. Over the past eight months as Chief Marketing Officer, Caterina has brought tremendous value and successfully secured an extraordinary event for our 2023 Spring Summer Collection later this year, at Maserati, with the stunning Megan Gale as our special guest. We look forward to Caterina’s contribution, now as an owner of the business."
Emanuela Tellaroli, Chief Designer at Tema Moda, expressed her gratitude for Caterina's belief in the company and acknowledged that together, we will build one of Australia's prominent fashion brands. Emanuella stated, “Caterina was the missing puzzle that we needed and together, as partners, we are determined to make this business one of Australia’s sought-after fashion labels.”
Caterina said, “I am thrilled to join this incredible partnership. When I first met Roberta, I understood clearly that the fashion industry had a serious environmental problem that needed to be addressed. And when I realised that Tema Moda was all about sustainability, and secondly, the products were all Made in Italy—this grabbed my attention immediately. I understand well that the fashion industry makes up 10% of global carbon emissions, and that is a huge problem for one of the world’s most important industries. So, one reason why I decided to invest in Tema Moda is because I have found my next calling: to help make a difference in this sector. And secondly after meeting Emanuela and witnessing firsthand her craftsmanship displayed in each piece of work—I became mesmerized by her quality: The quality of the clothing was the best in class, and I wanted to be part of it and give it my 110% attention."
Caterina added, “the strengthening of the partnership team signifies a promising future for Tema Moda”.
