Industry seeks strong platform in Near East at cpi

Jul '10
Response to cpi – collection première istanbul has been very positive. Many renowned international brands and designers have already signed up for the premiere (26 to 28 August 2010). Brands in the Contemporary segment (women/men, sportswear, lingerie and kids) include Avva, Basler, Blue Seven, Desperado London, DP Jeans, Gerry Weber, Giovane Gentile, G-Star, Marc & Andre, More & More, Perspective, Ted Lapidus / Bacci and Triumph. Those already confirming their participation in the Premium segment (incl. Fashion Lab and Designer's Room) include: Annette Görtz, Antonio Croce, Arzu Kaprol, Atil Kutoglu, Didier Parakian, Hatice Gökce, Özlem Süer, Sabbatha, Sabine Mescher, Oska and Tomo. Other names will shortly be announced by the organisers, the ITKIB (Istanbul Textile and Apparel Exporters' Association) and Düsseldorf's Igedo Company.

“The quality of the labels here demonstrates the current significance of Turkish and Near Eastern markets for the international fashion industry. Many of our exhibitors are real top selling names,” explained Mirjam Dietz, Executive Director Fashion at the Igedo Company.

“Despite a very short run-up response has been very good. The industry's interest in a strong and professional B2B fashion event for the Near Eastern market is without doubt very great.”

cpi – collection première istanbul will make its debut from 26 to 28 August 2010 on the historic Taskisla Campus of Istanbul's Technical University in close vicinity to Istanbul Fashion Week. The debut event will present some 200 selected international and Turkish brands in this the fashion and lifestyle metropolis on the Bosporus.

Over the past two decades Turkey has established itself as a leading production powerhouse in the European fashion industry. In this Europe's sixth largest economy clothing and textiles count as key industries. One quarter of the country's total exports is accounted for by fashion and textiles. At the same time, Turkish industry is undergoing drastic change and is increasing looking to developing and marketing its own brands developed with Turkish and international designers. And the fashion business is primarily
active in Istanbul, the largest goods hub in the Near / Middle East with strong contacts with Europe.

Istanbul has always held a special charm for the fashion and clothing industry. Caught between the Orient and the Occident and boasting twelve million inhabitants the city inspires the sector with its fascinating cultural mix and has been seen as a strong trading hub for Europe and the Near East since time immemorial. cpi will therefore bridge a gap that was long overdue in the fashion world.
