A number of important opportunities are offered to brands from Germany, Italy, Spain, France, Turkey and other countries as part of the work of individual pavilions. Today, the exhibition provides real support to participants from all over the world, and also works effectively to attract visitors. 



General Director of LLC Messe Duesseldorf Moscow,Thomas Stenzel commented on the development of the exhibition project: "Russia is a very special market and a special country. Being a key b2b platform on which orders are written, CPM lives and develops in the same high rhythm as the Russian capital Moscow, a dynamic and stunning city. As it is already known, our company will fully take over the management of the exhibition project from October 1, however, we continue to cooperate with Igedo Company as a co-organizer, which we are very happy about.



The attention of the guests of the exhibition was focused on the program of shows, consisting of more than 40 catwalk shows with women's, men's and children's clothing collections, lines of underwear and accessories, as well as the competition project Burda Fashion Start. Bright images of models of consolidated and individual shows were created by stylists of the school of makeup artists Iconface and ambassadors of the Japanese brand Lebel, whose works were highly noted by the fashion director CPM, By Alexander Radermacher (Alexander Radermacher).



The multidisciplinary business program CPM allowed a large circle of specialists from different segments of the fashion industry to receive not only up-to-date information on topics of interest to them, but also to meet new experts in the field of design and production of clothing, retail and franchising, consulting and trend forecasting. All this became possible thanks to the work of the forum RFRF (Russian Fashion Retail Forum) with the participation of Fashion Consulting Group and PROfashion Consulting, the agency WGSN, as well as thanks to the buyer's program of the project Top Buyer Lounge from The Union of Russian Buyers and the magazine Buyer.



The CPM exhibition traditionally presents a wide range of fashionable clothes: women's, men's and children's fashion, underwear, leather and fur products, evening dresses, leisure clothing and accessories.

In the segments CPM Premium, Mode Lingerie & Swim Moscow, as well as CPM Accessories , there was an increase in the activity of buyers, and premium brands from the section CPM Kids were particularly popular.
