Fur buyers also visited from Albania, Canada, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Georgia, Iran, Israel, Italy, Kazakhstan, Moldavia, Northern Macedonia, Poland, Slovenia, Spain, and the USA.
The fashion buyers had the opportunity to make their purchases and place their orders in view of the upcoming winter season, choosing from a wide range of top-quality products, such as ready-to-wear fur garments and accessories, on display at the attractive Exhibitors’ stands.
This year’s innovation were the four fashion shows held at a beautifully designed space on the International Exhibition Center’s premises, showing off the creations of Greek furriers to their best advantage. Attending the fashion shows, among others, was fashion influencer Stella Meligan, who declared that she was impressed by both the magnificent furs as well as the Fur Shopping Festival organization.
The 4th Fur Shopping Festival was organized by the Kastorian Fur Association, TIF-HELEXPO and the Western Macedonia Region. Saga Furs was the Grand Sponsor. The event was supported once again this year by the municipalities of Kastoria and Argos Orestiko.
