3-6 September 2019 should see Collection Premiere Moscow (CPM), the International Fashion Trade show, showcase the best of collections for the spring/summer 2020 season.
The show, to be held at the Expocentre exhibition grounds in Moscow, will see all 15 exhibition halls as well as two foyer levels entirely occupied including exhibitors from Germany, Italy, France and Turkey marking the major representations.
‘Made in Germany’ will be showcasing new brands namely Brühl, Carl Gross, Marc Aurel, Hans Schäfer, Manakas and van Laack.
The reports of Russian Fashion Retail Forums (RFRF) state that the imported clothing constituting around 85 per cent of the Russian clothing market and retail sales of 4.0 trillion Russian roubles are being predicted and, therefore, a growth of 1.7 percent in the current year.
Reflecting the same, around 30 per cent of the exhibition space will be occupied by Russian manufacturers. The most prominent ordering platform for the Russian and Eastern European fashion business will also incorporate an extended programme of events.
Christian Kasch, Project Director International and Member of the board, remarked, “Internationally active brands are more successful. Customs regulations, import and logistics have, of course, not made doing business in Russia and Eastern Europe any easier. But once again we are seeing that Russia and the CPM are worth visiting. After all, only those who maintain a presence in these markets will also achieve success here in the long term.”
The CPM segment has its significance for featuring over 120 brands from the upper-middle and premium segment from Germany, France, Italy, Greece and other countries resulting in an increased demand from buyers.
CPM Shop and Retail Solutions serve to the digitally operating specialists, manufacturers, retailers and service agencies and are looking for latest IT solutions.
On this, Nikolay Yarzew, Project Director Russia/CIS, said, “In September 2019 we are presenting ‘CPM Shop & Retail Solutions’, an urgently needed response to the development on the Russian fashion market, as well as the high demand from tradeshow visitors and exhibitors. Such topics also need to be covered at CPM, which sees itself as a platform for all interests and requirements of the Russian market.”
The exclusively significant segment of CPM, ‘CPM Body & Beach’ carries its own line up of expert and specialist talks, seminars, workshops and stage presentations. Emphasising on lingerie, ‘CPM Body & Beach Fabrics’ introduces new products in terms of fabrics, haberdashery, accessories and print technologies. Both to be located in Halls 2.4 and 2.5, the event will accommodate 140 international brands from 25 countries in total and will provide space for both networking and privacy in the lounge area.
Appointments at the event can be arranged using the CPM app (2Meet Service). The ‘CPM Body & Beach Talks’ event line-up will host distinctive talks and presentations by the Fashion Consulting Group, Carlin Creative Trend Bureau, VMC Retail and the renowned trade publication Lingerie.
Manufacturers from Spain, France, Germany, Turkey, Greece and Colombia in particular will be showcasing their latest looks for Spring/Summer 2020 on the ‘CPM Body & Beach Catwalk’.
Spain will be represented by brands such as Admas, Disney, Santoro and Ysabel Mora. Displayers from Germany include Bugatti, Ceceba, Götzburg, Mey, Rosch Fashion and Tom Tailor Underwear. The Caterina Group, which represents over 30 brands from France, Italy, Spain and Germany in the Russian market, will also feature the latest styles from DKNY, Passionata, Stella McCartney and others.
Nikolay Yarzew, the Project Director Russia/CIS, commented, “On the fiercely competitive niche market for lingerie, beachwear and homewear, it all comes down to dynamic growth rates – particularly with regard to trade fair participation. We are particularly thrilled that manufacturers from all over the world are coming to us and placing more and more orders. The continuous increase in the number of professional buyers from the lingerie retail trade, whose loyalty and trust are our utmost priority, is making a significant contribution to this.”
The ‘CPM Body and Beach’ will be launched on the first day of the trade show with the Grand Defile organised by the Lingerie Magazine. At the upcoming edition of CPM, the Lingerie Magazine will be celebrating its 15-year anniversary and inviting its most important business partners, customers and friends to celebrate. Also in September 2019, the seasonal NEW FACES competition for young lingerie designers will be hosted by Intimoda Magazine. The finalists will showcase their best collections on the stage in Hall 2.5 and at a booth sponsored by CPM at ‘CPM Body & Beach’ in February 2020.
The RFRF by the Fashion Consulting Group and the PRO fashion Consulting agency, which is of relevance to all CPM visitors, will again take place in Hall 7.2.
The trade show will also witness a collaboration with the World Fashion Channel, the international TV channel for fashion and lifestyle, in the form of a ‘New Model Show’ project.
After qualifying multiple rounds, a host of Russian models selected by CPM Fashion Director Alexander Radermacher will have the opportunity to take part in the stage programme, the official opening ceremony and multi-brand catwalk shows such as CPM Selected, Mode in France and CPM Designer pool.
The novices will launch their careers on the catwalk live on World Fashion Channel and in front of the audience of trade show.
Designerpool, Handmade, StartUp Russia and Modest Fashion are also welcoming the professional visitors with new exhibitors. September 2019 will see several young designers from Krasnoyarsk presented in ‘CPM My Country’ and at the collective stands organised with the support of regional business organisations, new collections will be showcased by selected brands from Moscow, Yekaterinburg, Ivanovo, Kaluga, Nizhny Novgorod, Ulyanovsk, Vologda, Irkutsk, Kirov, Krasnodar, Pensa, Karachay-Cherkessia and Bishkek (Kyrgyzstan).
