The CPM – Collection Première Moscow – which will be held from August 31 to September 3, 2016 in Moscow will present CPM, CPM kids, CPM Premium, CPM Accessories as well as Mode Lingerie & Swim Moscow. Collections from the 2017 Spring/Summer will be featured.
CPM is also recording new country participations. Indonesia will be exhibiting for the first time with the designers Alleira, Itang Yunasz, Ardistia New York and Warnatasku. India and Columbia will be exhibiting for the first time in their own country pavilion. A total of some 950 collections will be presented on 45,000 square metres.
Many more Russia designers will be exhibiting at the trade fair this time than ever before. In particular, the ‘Handmade in Russia’ segment has grown from 5 to 17 designers. The promotion programme of the CPM ‘Designer Pool’ will feature collections from Elena Brezhneva, Maria Akireikina, Toolai, Asta Rich and Yulia Nikolaeva.
The fashion show centre in Hall 83 will this time be artistically designed by George Redhawk. Hailing from California the artist has been almost blind for the last 12 years. With special vision aids and computer software he designs animation art. A number of his works will be on show on the catwalk that he creates under the heading DarkAngelØne. Also featured on the catwalk alongside the daily CPM Selected and CPM Kids shows will be the labels MARC CAIN, 5900 BC and VEMINA City.
Once again, the seminar programme at CPM will be informative and varied. The renowned trend bureau WGSN will be holding a lecture on the key trends for the 2017 Spring/Summer season as part of the Russian Fashion Retail Forum. The overriding theme of the two-day seminar programme will be ‘Innovations for Retail to defy the Shrinking of the Market’.
