Russian brides to wear Turkish wedding gowns
ISTANBULRussian and Azerbaijani buyers showed great interest in Turkish bridal dresses at IF Wedding Fashion Fair in İzmir, where 70 percent of Turkey’s wedding dress manufacturing is done. Importers from Russia and Azerbaijan visited İzmir to see and buy wedding gowns, hosted by the Aegean Union of Retail and Garment Exporters.
The chairman of the union, Emre Kızılgüneşler, said the bridal dress sector had leapt forward with the foreign buyers they’ve hosted in previous years and now they would aim to attract Russian importers. Seven Russian and Azerbaijani buyers will come together with 20 Turkish exporter companies that produce bridal dresses, wedding suits and evening gowns during the fair.
While the Turkish gown sector has focused on the local market for years, with the fairs Turkish producers have started to find export opportunities, he said.
