Latvian designers want to use fur

December 23, 2015 - The Latvian Fur Breeders' Association experience a growing interest from designers who want to use fur in their collections. Most recently fashion designer Alexander Pavlov presented a collection of 26 fur styles at the Column Hall of the Museum of the History of Riga and Navigation.

The Latvian Fur Breeders’ Association (LFBA) and Gauja AB brand, in collaboration with well-known fashion designer Alexander Pavlov, created Stardust, the most impressive fur collection in Latvia to this day, with 26 exquisite coats made of the finest mink and fox furs. The Stardust collection was premiered in a fashion show on December 16 at the Column Hall of the Museum of the History of Riga and Navigation.

Fashion designer Alexander Pavlov: “The variety of designs and silhouettes, combinations of aristocratic colours and fabrics, in line with the latest fashion trends, were created for the Latvian ladies to celebrate their search for lasting beauty and understanding of the true value of things. The Stardust collection is as sensual as a woman’s inner world and as mysterious as the Universe. It is like enjoying expensive champagne while watching the stars fall from the night sky.”

These exclusive garments were made by the best artisans of Gauja AB, following the designer’s sketches and using only top quality furs produced at the Gauja farm. Fur is extremely popular amongst international designers. More than 70% of the designers at the four international fashion weeks in London, New York, Paris and Milan feature fur in their winter collections, and the trend is seen in Latvia as well.

“Today furs are featured in collections of the world’s leading fashion houses more than ever before. We are also receiving a growing interest from designers here in Latvia who wish to use our natural materials,” says member of the LFBA board Sandra Vilciņa.

The event was attended by a number of famous and respected personalities, including business people and fashion designers. The collection will be presented to audiences in other other European countries.
