Hailed as one of the most successful in the history of the organization, the 42nd KASTORIA International Fur Fair

 
Hailed as one of the most successful in the history of the organization, the 42nd KASTORIA International Fur Fair was held at the International Exhibition Center of Kastoria from May 4-7. Of the 115 exhibitors, representing leading companies in the field, 80% were Greek and 20% were from other countries (Italy, Turkey, Finland and Serbia), filling the 13,000m2 (140,000 ft.) exhibition space. Taking place in the largest center for fur production in the Western world, the Kastoria International Fur Fair included products ranging from coats and garment to shoes and accessories.

 
With beauty, glamor and luxury setting the tone for the four-day exhibition, the furriers’ models were original and innovative fashion proposals that will clue the fur fashion trends for the 2017-18 Winter Season.
The upshot of the new Western Macedonia fur collections was magnificently showcased in the unique Fashion Show Gala. This year it was held in an open space for the first time in Kastoria’s Doltso Square in the historical city center, where the traditional 17th- and 18th-century villas were the dramatic backdrop to the show.
The participating companies, in order of appearance were:

The hundreds of visitors from the globe’s most significant fur markets (1.128 visitors from 32 countries) proved that the exhibition is, in fact, an event of international scope, while a considerable number of commercial deals were made over these four days.

Another parallel event was the Fur-processing Workshop for young designers, who were initiated into the art of fur. Exhibiting much enthusiasm for the luxury material they were provided with, the participants were given the opportunity to learn about its secrets and whole-heartedly threw themselves into incorporating fur in their future designs.

The organizers of the Fur Fair (Kastorian Fur Association “The Prophet Elias”, TIF – HELEXPO and the Regional Unit of Kastoria) were wholly satisfied by the huge success of this year’s event, which was sponsored by the following companies:

BLACKGLAMA AMERICAN LEGEND (Big Sponsor), TAP (Gold Sponsor), KOPENHAGEN FUR (Silver Sponsor), SAGA FURS (Silver Sponsor), NAFA (Silver Sponsor), SOJUZPUSHNINA (Silver Sponsor), KASTORIA MUNICIPALITY, ARGOS ORESTIKO MUNICIPALITY, ENTERPRISE GREECE, ELLINAIR, MOUZENIDIS GROUP, MICILLO ITALIA, TOURISM ORGANIZATION OF WESTERN MACEDONIA
