Katia Serafini was born on 7 June 1971 in Castiglione del Lago (Perugia).
Awarded a Diploma at Perugia Art Institute in 1990.
Created her first collection with the money her husband (Stefano Spaccini) made by selling his car in 1995.
The first collection consisted of 17 garments and the headquarters of the company was a room (12m2) of her small apartment.
The collection grew in number of garments from year to year, and in 1999 the company Kastef Collection merged with Kastef S.n.c General Partnership to include her husband Stefano and brother-in-law Emiliano Spaccini, as well as Katia Serafini.
As sales increased so did production and in 2003 Kastef S.n.c decided to purchase its first property, a commercial warehouse of 1000 m2 at the foot of Orvieto, (ancient Etruscan Volsinii) one of the most beautiful medieval cities in the world.
A new company, Katia Serafini S.r.l, formed in 2010 after further growth and in May of the same year it purchased Kastef S.n.c. The rooms were renovated and their firm belief in renewable energy led them to install solar panels that would provide more energy than the business would actually need, thereby demonstrating great care for the environment and nature.
Today Katia Serafini S.r.l. acquired shares of T. & Fitn. companies, this last owner of a building plot of 19,000 square meters, where the company will develop the new pole of handmade excellence of Orvieto, inside of which will be built the new modern headquarters.
The company currently produces fashion lines for other designer labels and young stylists.
The showrooms of reference are in Milan and New York, the leading cities for fashion.
Katia Serafini and Katia Serafini Cashmere products are exclusively Made in Umbria, so rigorously Made in Italy.
