I have got an opportunity to visit Moscow in September. It was my first visit to Russia, and I cannot express the emotions that this trip has given to me.Lila OchoaChief editor of "Colombian fashion magazine Fuchsia"
But what was my surprise when I learnt that Colombian brands were taking part in an important international lingerie exhibition CPM Body & Beach. The event took place on September 4 - 7. I could not have imagined that, but our brands turned out to be quite competitive on this market.
And then I met Albina Litvinenko, the founder of wholesale holding “Northern Venice” in St. Petersburg. She is the soul of Colombian project in Russia.
Albina consults brands: she teaches them to adapt to the Russian market and improve their production. She makes sure that every detail is ideal, because it is vital for sales.. Starting from March this year, all of the three brands are included into the assortment of many multi brand boutiques all over Russia. Further plans are very ambitious: to extend the Colombian project supported by Prolombia and significantly increase the sales.
Wholesale Holding "Northern Venice" has been the partner of Intimoda magazine for the last two years, helping us to distribute and promote activity of our magazine efficiently on the territory of the Russian Federation and the CIS countries. We know this company as the distributor of the European lingerie and hosiery brands, and judging by the positive feedback from our clients and readers (retailers) we can tell about high professionalism and competence of the company employees. We are highly satisfied with our fruitful cooperation with holding "Northern Venice" and we are looking forward to developing our partnership in future.Ksenia TsarevaThe representative of "Intimoda"
The Russian underwear market is very young, it is only 26 years old. This period saw thousands of companies sprouting and sinking into oblivion. But there are also those that exist under any conditions, survive various crisis situations in the country and emerge from them even stronger than before. One of such rare companies is Wholesale Holding “Northern Venice” that changes with time, but remains strong, mobile, flexible and reliable. Things like that does not happen by themselves, they are the consequence of experience, professionalism and honesty of the owners and directors of the company as well as the result of their personnel policy. The powerful team of professionals led by wise guidance is a guarantee that “Northern Venice” will remain one of the leaders of wholesale business on the Russian market in future.Mikhail UvarovEditor-in-chief of “Belye i Kolgotki” (“Underwear and Hosiery”), Worldwide Lingerie Guide magazines and belyevik.ru online portal.

Colombia is a world power in the textile industry. Our brand has begun the project with a view to large-scale entry into Russia. That allows us to expand the portfolio of our markets while offering the high level of design quality and accessibility of our products to customers in this part of the world. Russia is one of the areas of great influence in fashion for Europe, which we could see it on our trip to the fair that we have attended in August 2016.
Our criteria when choosing a partner in the Russian markets were professionalism, big experience, transparency and integrity. We are sure that we will continue to grow hand in hand with Wholesale Holding "Northern Venice" every year.
We have already achieved the large scale of this project between both countries supported by ProColombia, Colombian consulate and the embassies of both countries. It demonstrates great relationship between both countries and shows the whole world the diversity in fashion and textiles that Colombian brands can offer to the great powers of the world, such as Russia.
