We are presenting the next issue of the informational newsletter of our autumn exhibitions Mir Detstva and CJF – Child and Junior Fashion. Autumn 2020.
In this issue, we have introduced a new section “Antivirus” – only good news from our exhibitors! And, fortunately, there are a lot of them. We are glad that our colleagues do not fall into pessimism, but seek and find new opportunities to overcome the crisis.
Since mid-April, in our social networks, we have launched the projects #ÌèðÄåòñòâà_ÌûÂìåñòå and #CJF_ÌûÂìåñòå to support our exhibitors. There you can share how you cope with the situation and how you timely restructure production and sales. And most importantly – in these small videos, there is so much love for your work and faith in the good that we will undoubtedly win!
Maintaining optimism, we believe that you will find a source of inspiration in yourself!
We sincerely wish good health to you all and your loved ones!
