Madrid fashion fairs12 January 2005
The sixth edition of the Madrid Lives Fashion programme will shortly commence with a cycle of fairs which continue through the months of February and March, coinciding with the staging of SIMM-Madrid International Fashion Week (February 13-16), Pasarela Cibeles (February 14-17); and Textilmoda (February 22-24). The sixth edition of Madrid Lives Fashion will close with the staging of SIPIEL, the International Footwear and Leather Goods Week at the beginning of April (April 1-3). Madrid Lives Fashion is launched by IFEMA and is supported by the business organisations representing those sectors devoted to the fashion industry. Fashion shows can also be followed in their entirety outside Feria de Madrid itself. On this occasion, the venue chosen will be the Shopping Centre Madrid-2 La Vaguada, where a gigantic screen will be set up for the thousands of visitors who shop at the centre every day. As in previous years, fashion will also play a leading role in the Presentation of Iberjoya Trends, another of the activities coordinated as part of the overall Madrid Lives Fashion programme. This exhibition will take place during the course of the traditional Iberjoya gala dinner on Friday January 14, with a special multimedia projection of the most innovative jewellery and timepiece ideas. Furthermore, this edition of Madrid Lives Fashion, organised within the framework of SIMM, Madrid International Fashion Week, will also include the staging of the Moda Viva fashion parades programme on February 11-13. The catwalk will play host to 3 shows a day presenting the collections of a number of companies participating at Iberpiel Peleteria and at the exhibitions known as Boutique and La Galeria, not to mention the creations of a selection of Latin American designers.
