January 2023 | Kidswear Colours & Trends

Kidswear Trend Spotlight - What to look out for at the show

AIS Childrenswear Buyer and our resident Kidswear expert Annmarie Collie-King talks us through the colours, trends, and themes you can expect to see at INDX Kids when it returns on 29 - 30 January with an exciting showcase featuring over 140 brands


Gender Neutrality | Inclusivity | Sustainability

From loose-fit sweatshirts, dungarees and boiler-suits to wardrobe staples and made-to-last outerwear, for 2023, suppliers are approaching kidswear in a much more inclusive way and there is also a strong drive towards reducing, reusing, and recycling (thumbnail image:Pigeon Organics).

With kidswear brands championing gender neutrality and embracing unisex fashion, clothing can be more easily passed-down to younger generations and as a result, clothing has more longevity, and the industry as a whole can become more circular and sustainable.

TOP TIP: Comfort and durability are key - look out for chunky corduroys, soft sweats and knits, and luxe basics that can be layered.

The colour palette is reflective of the theme - so anything goes. Look out for versatile neutral hues through to bright rainbow shades.


Organised by Associated Independent Stores (AIS), the UK’s leading buying group for Fashion, Home, and Leisure, INDX Kids is uniquely curated by Buyers, for Buyers.
