Russia’s first lingerie trade show, Lingerie Expo, will debut in Moscow, at the Crocus Expo Centre, from February 5-8, with brands showing their AW13 collections. It will take place twice a year, in February and September.
Lingerie Expo has been put together by the ITE Group, who also run Moda UK, and aims to offer wholesalers and producers the opportunity to expand their Russian markets.
As well as the stands, the show will offer fashion shows, seminars and trend reports for SS14 from Carling International Trend Bureau. There are also two awards, the Lingerie Internet Award and the Lingerie Photo Awards.
Exhibition director Vadim Efremenkov said: “We have had a great response from specialist lingerie suppliers and buyers both within Russia and abroad, so this first show will already feature a wide selection of brands.The Russian lingerie market has seen strong growth over the last few years and we hope that Lingerie Expo will encourage even more international brands to come to Russia."
