At the CPM in Moscow, the new Autumn/Winter Collection is presented. Through the combination of exquisite design and skillful negotiation, Schneiders gains many new partners in this important market. “Austrian Fashion goes India” is the motto for a presentation of the collection at the world-famous Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in Mumbai, on the occasion of a state visit by Austrian President Dr. Heinz Fischer. Schneiders has now been active for 25 years at the Marianum and for 35 years in Seitenstetten. That said, the most important anniversary is clearly the fact that Alfons Schneider this year celebrates half-a-century with the company.
