Trade show organiser the Igedo Company is launching a new event for contemporary brands and designers in Düsseldorf next February.

CPD Signatures will premiere from 6-8 February 2011, and will offer a line-up of women's wear and unisex collections plus young fashion, lifestyle and sportswear brands. The CPD In Time Accessories event will also be held in parallel.

The organisers say the aim is to provide an "at a glance" survey of international collections.

"The fashion location that is Düsseldorf needs a central international platform," explains Mirjam Dietz, executive director fashion at Igedo Company. "This is confirmed to us in every conversation we hold. Trade shows continue to be the best place for canvassing new customers from home and abroad, for information and communication."
