The 19th Mifur, the International Fur and Leather Exhibition, opens on 4th March 2014 in pavilions 14 and 18 of the Milano Rho exhibition centre.
More than 200 exhibitors from Italy and around the world will be taking part, and there will be 14 specialist press stands and four themed areas: B.box, Crossover, Glam Av., and K.Point.
The world of leather garments, technical fabrics with borders and quilted jackets: fur is reinvented and mixed with other materials, for young and sophisticated prêt-à-porter.
The utmost attention to quality, meticulous details and respect for tradition: these are the secrets of the greatest fur makers and their new collections.
The companies registered with the Chamber of Fashion, the research, the new styles, and the mood for A/W 2014/2015.
The heart of the exhibition, where it all begins: hides, accessories, buttons, patterns, machinery and tanning processing techniques.
"We are optimistic about the upcoming exhibition, as all the initial signs are positive in spite of the current climate. We have increased the number of people taking part and the exhibition areas are also larger. This supports our belief that taking part in an international exhibition is fundamental for doing business and being competitive on the market. Mifur stands out as the most important exhibition in the world for this sector," notes Norberto Albertalli, Mifur President.
Over the four days of the exhibition many international buyers will be participating: from Russia, proving once again to be the most important buyer in the sector, as well as up-and-coming China and the big European and US buyers.
MIFUR besides the Exhibition…the one and only Mifur event: The Italian Fur Association Fashion Night show.
Closing the first day of the exhibition will be the Autumn/Winter 2014/2015 collection shows from brands bearing the Made in Italy label; a grand event that pays tribute to the big Italian names in fur that are famous around the world.
