August 2023 | Visitors bring an upbeat mood to INDX Intimate Apparel
Organised by Associated Independent Stores (AIS), the UK's leading buying and services group for Fashion, Home and Leisure, INDX Intimate Apparel is the UK lingerie industry's national trade show, and the recent event was well attended by an upbeat crowd of buyers and retailers from all across the UK and Ireland.
Alex Pluthero from Freedom Underwear was exhibiting at the show for the first time:
"My first time at INDX Intimate Apparel has been brilliant. You can’t beat feeling the product and talking to people. It’s amazing for a young company like mine to be alongside some of the biggest names in lingerie. We have opened new accounts and found new leads."
Alongside showcasing over 150 brands across lingerie, swimwear, nightwear, and legwear, the 3-day show also hosted trend and insight talks, plus a buyers breakfast sponsored by Anita.
The Summer 2023 show also saw the launch of the new 'Boutique by INDX' sector for premium brands, which was supported by labels including:
Aqua Blu | Aruelle | Blackspade | Conturelle | Cosabella | Cupid Fine Shapewear | Damella | Delores Cortes | Eberjey | Felina | Goldbergh | Gottex | Heaven | Huit8 | Iconique | Jessica Russell Flint | Laurence Tavernier | Lingadore | Magic BodyFashion | Marjolaine | Miraclesuit | Miraclesuit Swimwear | Moontide | Naomi & Nicole | Onades | OPERA | Profile by Gottex | Red Point | Secret Weapons | Simone Perele | SUNFLAIR | West Seventy Nine
James Crabtree, Head of Fashion at AIS:
"The idea behind our new 'Boutique by INDX' area was to showcase premium brands in a more exclusive and luxury environment. The dedicated exhibition space provided a more relaxed atmosphere for buyers to review ranges and we're delighted that the concept was a huge success."
