The Russian fur fair, Mexa, is not only a fair for fur dealers; it also supports young designers. For the second time, Mexa and Kopenhagen Fur were the main supporters of the 'Stars of Kremlin' contest held in cooperation with design universities from all over Russia.

Kopenhagen Fur is the main sponsor of 'Stars of Kremlin' and the Grand Prize for the top finalist is a one week stay, all inclusive, at Kopenhagen Studio - Kopenhagen Fur's centre of fur innovation and creativity.

Kopenhagen Studio's fashion expert, Design Manager Michael Holm, was a member of the jury alongside the famous Irina Krutikova. Irina Krutikova is, among other things, known for her beautiful work with fur.

- I was really pleased to see how all the finalists had moved forward this year and had managed to incorporate fur as a natural part of their design, says Michael Holm.

Despite the many beautiful designs, there was no doubt among the jury members as to whom should receive the Grand Prize. Elena Tsymbal was awarded the prestigious price for her collection 'Don't Stop'. Elena will go to Kopenhagen Studio in December and she is looking forward to getting hands on experience with guidance from Kopenhagen Studio's skilled furriers.
