Events and novelties for the Kastorian Fur Association, already waiting for the next fur fair scheduled for May 2017

shopping_festivalThe Fur Shopping Festival (3-6 November) just took place, promoting fur with a trade show at the International Exhibition Center of Kastoria, fashion shows and events in the stores of the picturesque greek town. Professionals of the sector, press and fur lovers expressed a great satisfaction during the event that saw Greek and international furriers propose seasonal novelties and classics of their production with notable sales and discounts.
After all, the latest edition of the fur and accessory international fair ended last May with a positive note and a dynamic business climate. The exhibitors were 103 in all, with big design labels and emerging designers side by side to propose the winter novelties both in regards to fur and leather creations, accessories, hats, bags, as well as leather and shearling items.
The efforts of the Kastoria Furriers’ Association, aimed mainly at big foreign markets like Russia and Arab countries, have been rewarded by the presence of 531 buyers from 30 different countries: the organization underlines how the buyers and the large attendance of the specialized press gave the trade fair an international flavour and a great global resonance.
The 42nd International Fur Fair of Kastoria is already under preparation, and will take place from May 4rd to 7th 2017.
The 2nd Fur Shopping Festival is been scheduled from November 3rd to 5th 2017 instead.

Thirty years of the history of Italy narrated through “Made In Italy” fashion: this is the proposal of the exhibition inaugurated in Palazzo Reale during the last Milan Fashion Week and which comes to a close in these days.
It is a fitting tribute to a pivotal period in which a generation of stylists, industrialists, designers, artists, architects and intellectuals defined Italy’s image in the world and put it on the map of international culture.
