Germany:Latest & real looks for Autumn/Winter at cpd


cpd – International Trade Fair for Womenswear & Accessories is perfectly geared up to its international audience. From 7 to 9 February 2010 cpd at the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre will be presenting 1,010 collections – including a variety of new brands – with the latest looks for the 2010/11 Autumn/Winter season.

This means that despite difficult economic conditions cpd is on apar with last year’s event and is slightly up on the July event. Sensual concepts determine the design here making the cooler season of the year even more exciting than summer.Trends hover between global and regional, on a time line between the past and the future, caught in the balance between reality and imagination, in a calculation between the rational and theemotional and in the polarisation between the standard and the avantgarde. Very much true to the motto “opposites attract” the Autumn/Winter 2010 fashion trends look to extremes. And that’s exactly where cpd comes in.

Attention here centres on continuing the relaunch started in July 2009 with enhanced concepts in the individual segments. All areas of the fair were reworked for the forthcoming event. This means cpd will be presenting itself in entirely evolved, contemporary new design. Newly created style universes like Luxury Women’s Wear, Maternity and Big is Beautiful, as well as Concept 11, Gallery and Decorate, form the fashion tendencies throughout Womensworld.

The cooperation area Italian Suite (with Ente Moda Italia – EMI and Honegger) was also further extended and has now more than doubled in terms of exhibitor numbers. Further top fashion brandsare to find a new home here over the coming seasons. Furthermore,thanks to rapid links in the city Düsseldorf offers national and European clothing retailers a concept that is perfectly adapted to their needs and thus a real platform for effective business.

“cpd will show its visitors that we now changed our look,”explained Igedo Managing Director Philipp Kronen at the kick-off press conference held at the Düsseldorf InterContinental. “We re-arranged cpd last year and are very satisfied that we have been able to maintain the range here despite the difficult economic climate. Feedback from the market has been extremely positive andwe are sure to see a cpd that we will be able to build upon further in July. Buyers not attending cpd for a long while shoulddefinitely come and take a look at the changes here for themselves.”
