From the 6th till the 9th of March Kastoria hosted the most glamorous organization in the branch of fur! The 32nd INTERNATIONAL FUR FAIR OF KASTORIA drew the global interest to the foremost Greek metropolis of leather processing. The number of the exhibitors that participated in the 32nd Fair rose to 130, presenting an increase of 20% in comparison to the fair of 2006, resulting to the covering of all the available space of the showroom that required the covering of an additional space of 1500 sq.m., thereby reaching 6.500 sq.m. The 2930 visitors came from 33 countries from all over the world.

The management of the KASTORIAN FUR ASSOCIATION made an exceptional effort for the organization of the fair through an extended promotion campaign in Russia, Europe, USA and Cyprus, special communication campaigns, as well as the direct TV support of Fashion TV. Furthermore, it offered, for the first time, hospitality to Russian traders–visitors and journalists from the most valid and largest means of Russia.

Several local statesmen, ambassadors and ministry delegations from countries of Eastern Europe, USA and Asia honored the Fair by their presence; besides, prominent people from the world of fashion and art of our country visited the Fair.

A catwalk that had nothing to envy from the large Fashion Centers of the world in terms of dazzle and spectacle: this is how they described the Fur Fashion Show that was held on Wednesday 7 March at the Indoor Stadium of Kastoria, sponsored by NAFA.

BROS” took the first place, “MI.AN BY PSOMAS BROS” and “CAVIEL FURS” took the 2nd place and “AVANTI” took the third place.
