In 1930 a tailor and textile merchant Mr. Aldo Bernagozzi opened his shop in the center of Bologna, Via dei Mille. After forty years of activity, in 1973 Mr. Bernagozzi sold his company to four of his most representative and deserving employees: in that moment was born the current Successori Bernagozzi S.r.l.
Successori Bernagozzi Srl continues in the previous activity of the textile trade and sale of wholesale fabrics during the subsequent years , but it moved the own commercial space in the CENTERGROSS since 1977; from that moment Successori Bernagozzi S.r.l becoming a historic company of this very important district of European fashion wholesale trade.
The growth of Successori Bernagozzi Srl coincided, from that moment, with the growth of the CenterGross during its first twenty years of life; today Successori Bernagozzi s.r.l owns 4 brand and the relevant 4 stores/warehouse (one for each of the brands owned by the company located inside the Center Gross) and a logistics of 3000 square meters.
However, at the end of the first decade of the 2000s, the initiative of the new generation of Successori Bernagozzi Srl, combined their wealth of experience (gained over the years by the group) together with a strong propensity to search of a fresh fashion style and the quality of the materials… such in this way was born BERNA.
In fact, Berna was born as a fast-fashion brand but in just 8 years the brand has become a semi-programmed brand presenting 2 collections in a year (pre-order and fast fashion) and continuing to produce some fast-fashion styles in support at the main collection as well. The success of Berna is due to the quality of the product and the presence of a strong fashion character in the Berna style.
In just seven years, only the brand Berna can count today on a turnover of 17 million euros, a headquarter / warehouse of 2.000 sqm, a logistics of 2.500 sqm, a showroom and a structure of 25 employees, also 70,000 followers on the main social network channels.
