CPM on course for expansion16 February 2006
The 6th edition of CPM - COLLECTION PREMIERE MOSCOW is now also due to kick off with increased exhibitor numbers on extended exhibition space. Compared with the last event in 2005, around 100 more collections will be on display for buyers coming mainly from Russia and the former CIS, bringing the total number of collections up to 1,000. The fact that exhibitors are coming here this time from 27 countries (the figure being 24 last season) is a clear sign of the great importance of CPM as a key local and international information and order platform in Russia's fashion sector. Exhibition space at the exhibition centre at the heart of the Russian capital has now grown from 23,800m2 to 30,750m2. This has created space for further segmentation of the range and room for presentations outside the country-specific participations. For instance, new exhibitors like Ginch Gonch from Canada or Hally Bob from the USA are now using CPM individually rather than on joint stands. The new segment CPM KIDS has also been fully booked right from the start. Around 90 labels will be showcased here in Hall 7.2 including renowned manufacturers from Spain, France and Italy such as Agatha, Big Fun, Losan, Mayoral, Ruiz de la Prada Baby, Tuc Tuc , Disney, Glitter, Jimmy Bravo, Byblos by Mafrat, GF Ferre by Mafrat, Laura Biagotti Dolls by Mafrat etc. The lingerie segment has also continued to develop featuring renowned brands from the dessous, homewear, nightwear and beachwear sectors including the likes of Praha, Rösch, Taubert, Lingerie Louis Feraud, Cybele, Daniel Hechter, Impetus, Irma la Douce etc. Alongside its presence in the different country-specific pavilions, it also boasts a prime position in the CPM forum. Alongside their individual presentation in the different product segments, there will be 11 country-specific participations at CPM. The largest joint stands come from Italy and Germany. The German pavilion alone has grown by 45% and is posting new registrations from big names like Toni Gard, Joseph Janard, Michele, Karl Lagerfeld, Cinque, Codello and Zucchero. Events accompanying CPM The Düsseldorf-Moscow fashion axis, successfully established over several seasons, is now undergoing further development thanks to parallel presentation of Russian and German designers at CPD DÜSSELDORF and CPM MOSCOW. In a pavilion dedicated to young designers in Hall 7.6, Russian creative talents Olga Romina, Olga Samoschenko and Viktor Anisimov along with the German designer Adrian Sommerauer will be showcasing their work to the trade visitors at CPM. On March 3 they will be presenting their designs in their very own show in the Hall of Design, in Hall 4 of CPM. This group can also be found at the Fashion Gallery in Hall 14 at CPD DÜSSELDORF. A significant feature of CPM is its varied range of shows and seminars. In addition to the daily shows on the CPM Catwalk in the Hall of Design and the fashion shows of different exhibitors like Frank Walder, Steilmann, MODEE, Seidel and Lindner, children's wear from Spain will now again be presented on the catwalk in the 'Children's Fashion from Spain' show following great success at the last CPM. New fashion shows focus on 'Fashion-Brands from Portugal' and 'Fashion from Finland'. Famous beyond Russia's borders, the designer Slava Zaitsev will be holding his show on March 1 at 4.00 pm in the Hall of Design, Hall 4. In their efforts to offer trade visitors at CPM a comprehensive range of services for their business with fashion, the choice of seminars will now be extended. Especially reserved for this purpose, the 'Marble Room' will host a variety of seminars on topical, sector-related themes organised by the Russian trade magazine Modny Magazin, Steilmann and the 'Fashion Consulting Group'. As the organiser of CPM MOSCOW, the IGEDO COMPANY will be inviting the sector for a get together after work at the 'CPM FASHION NIGHT ' at a trendy Moscow club on the evening of the first day of the fair. The next CPM - COLLECTION PREMIERE MOSCOW will run from 11 to 14 September 11-14, 2006, at the Krasnaya Presnaya Expocenter.
