The best in Spanish fashion at CPM Moscow
A total of 36 Spanish companies set to present collections and take the catwalk by storm at this highly popular Moscow tradeshow.
The 10th Collection Premiere Moscow (CPM) will run from 4 to 7 September, at Moscow’s Expocentr, where companies from different fashion sectors are set to present their designs for Spring-Summer 2014.
Collection Premiere Moscow (CPM) is the major fashion exhibition for the Russian market and former Soviet republics. At this edition, the event will be welcoming more than 1,600 brands from at least 24 countries which will exhibit over a 58,000sqm area. The organisers expect close to 20,000 visitors.
Spanish participation has once again been organised by the Spanish Institute for Foreign Trade (ICEX) at the Official Pavilion, where 36 Spanish companies will be representing 41 menswear, womenswear and kidswear brands.
They include names like Alba Conde, Brunella, Escorpión, Etxart & Panno, Isabel de Pedro, Viriato, Naulover and Etiem for womenswear; Florentino and Mirto for menswear; Roidal, Promise and Punto Blanco for intimates/swimwear; and Bóboli, Condor, Foque, Garvalin, Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, Eli and Biomecanics in kids’ fashion and footwear.
Simultaneously, the 15th CPM Kids catwalk show will be taking place during the four-day event. Now a classic at the Moscow trade fair, a number of Spanish brands will once again be presenting the bright and colourful collections typical of kidswear made in Spain. On this occasion, Mayoral, Cóndor, Bóboli, Foque and Sanmar are the five Spanish representatives.
In the meantime, Florentino and Etiem will also be appearing on the catwalk in a combined mens- and womenswear show.
Spanish fashion companies have made a strong bet on the Russian market and their presence at the Collection Première Moscow show over the last ten years has undoubtedly helped improve their positioning and promoted Spain’s image as a country.
Russia is now a key market for Spanish companies in the sector, and is the tenth largest importer of Spanish garments, accounting for 3% of the total. In footwear, Russia stands at number thirteen on the client list, with a 2% share. In 2012, Spanish textiles exports to Russia rose to €181.8 mill., while footwear was worth €33.1 mill., up 19% and 20% respectively on 2011.
In the January to May period in 2013, garment exports to Russia reached €103.7 mill. and footwear, €23 mill., growing 62% and 64% respectively on the same period last year.
