The fall MEXA show in Moscow reports exhibition space is already 80% booked. Unlike the spring show held in May for the trade only, this event also is open to the public and usually provides a strong sendoff to Russia’s retail season. It takes place October 20-22 in Hall 3 of the city’s Expocenter Fairgrounds. A highlight will be a seminar on karakul lamb, now in a fashion comeback. It will be led by Michael Hasse, head of the fur school in St. Petersburg. Participants are advised to register. Last year’s event opened when local temperatures had dropped to minus-10 Celsius and it attracted more than 24,000 visitors. It featured 111 exhibitors, more than half from abroad. The merchandise mix was described as 80% garments, hats and accessories and 20% skins.
