More than 90 per cent of exhibitors have confirmed their presence for the upcoming edition of the Collection Premium Moscow (CPM) expo, which will be held in Moscow, Russia, from February 25-28, 2019. A total of 50 different product groups are represented in the 15 exhibition halls, including womenswear, menswear, childrenswear, eveningwear, and activewear.
The German pavilion will also be part of the forum in February 2019 and will be covering an even larger area than previously. A wide spectrum of noteworthy, premium brands, and high-quality lifestyle labels will be presenting themselves, from sporty and functional to timeless and elegant down to stylish and modern, according to a press release on the show.
‘Fashion from Italy’ in cooperation with EMI (Ente Moda Italia) will be located in hall 2.1. Some of the list of ladies’ and menswear brands exhibiting there includes Carla VI, Carnevale 1951, Chocolat, Easy Maxfort, Elisa Cavaletti, and Francesca by Sottini.

For the upcoming edition, the seminar line-up is being further optimised with leading market experts and keynote speakers. One new addition is the self-contained seminar area in hall 2.4, for which the ‘CPM Body & Beach’, which is now being managed back under the CPM flag again, is being extended for the February 2019 edition by the newly created ‘CPM Body & Beach Fabrics’ area.
The Matchmaking Seminar has been developed for international brands looking for an agency in Russia. And the presentation by WGSN for designers, fashion analysts, and stylists will be putting the spotlight on the latest fashion trends. The new location of the fashion show hall is enabling new show presentations: the catwalk will be moving from hall 8.3 to hall 2.3 next to ‘CPM Accessories & Shoes’. A new addition to this area is Barbaras from Poland. The ‘Handmade in Russia’ project can also be found in the Accessories & Shoes segment with various brands like Fiore di firenze, Madreperla, and Orgalica.
The show line-up on all three days of the fair includes the popular ‘CPM Selected & Designerpool’ shows as well as the ‘CPM Body & Beach’ showcase and the lingerie shows as part of the ‘Grand Defile Lingerie’.
‘CPM Kids Corner’ will be found with a host of noteworthy brands in the foyer, gallery basement. It will be directly connected to the highly frequented hall forum, where in addition to international kidswear, leading Russian sponsorship projects from the fashion sector will be presented for the third time in a row.
Already firmly established are the Russian ‘Designerpool’, ‘Handmade’ and ‘StartUp Russia’ areas, which constantly attract new exhibitors to the fair. For the first time, the ‘CPM My Country’ project is presenting designers from outside of Russia. Thanks to the cooperation with the national Fashion Weeks in Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, fashion industry representatives from these countries will also be taking part.
