                                                          Our Organisation

   At the end of the seventies a licensee, Tescosa Spa, a company of
    the Fila Group specialising in men’s and women’s formal wear, an
    a licensor, Pierre Cardin, the largest fashion designer in the world
    in terms of production range and turnover, were the parties to an
    agreement which led to a few successful deals without developing
    any further.
   It was in that period that Mr. Giuseppe De Vecchi,
    then General Director of Tescosa and today’s
    Managing Director of La Quinta, conceived the idea
    of setting up a service company acting as a broker
    between designers and companies and, above all,
    serving as a catalyst for new forms of exploitation
    of brand names.
   Since the original Licensing division has been the creation of
    trading, design, marketing, advertising and foreign languages
    divisions and the opening of local offices throughout the world.
    Thanks to its twenty-year experience and long-established
    relations with its partners, La Quinta has reinforced its image and
    consolidated the confidence of companies and designers.

   In the near future La Quinta Srl. is scheduled to become a holding
    company with its various divisions turned into individual
    companies. Foreign local offices will be transformed into
    subsidiaries organised according to this same structure.
