August 2022 | Retailers out in force to support July edition of the show
Despite facing disruptions caused by a national rail strike on its first day, the recent edition of INDX Womenswear & Footwear which took place at West Midlands event venue Cranmore Park on 27-28 July was well attended by retailers and hailed a success by exhibiting suppliers.
Fay Derricott, INDX Brand Selector and AIS Senior Womenswear Buyer was pleased with the footfall across the two-day July show:
“AIS members and attending retailers were keen to see our portfolio of brands which are ‘curated by buyers for buyers’. Our focus at this show was to bring together an inclusive selection of brands and to broaden the options for our visiting buyers, so as well as presenting big brands such as Sandwich, Sahara, Weird Fish, Geox, Lily & Me, b.young, Lizabella and Mistral, we also hosted a selection of debuts including My Mother’s Garden, Redraft, and launching exclusively at INDX, SugarLane and the Wortmann footwear powerhouse, who presented their comprehensive brand offer: s.Oliver, Jana, Marco Tozzi, and Tamaris and Caprice. We pride ourselves on maintaining our order-writing status and we’re delighted that brands continue to recognise the show as a great business opportunity”.
Stephen Nunn from exhibiting brand Lizabella was keen to praise the order-writing focus of the show:
“We returned to INDX Womenswear & Footwear with Lizabella for our fifth season because we see a good customer base here who are keen to actually write orders. The show has a more intimate feel and as a result, the business we do here is great”.
Natalie Hurrell who also exhibited at the show with the Sandwich brand remarked:
“INDX Womenswear & Footwear gave us a great opportunity to showcase the Sandwich brand in a relaxed and professional environment. We launched our Spring 2023 collection at the show with very positive feedback. We enjoyed meeting both new and existing customers with great opportunities to network and put Sandwich back on the map”.
The INDX brand is brought to market by leading UK buying group Associated Independent Stores (Ltd) which successfully delivers 20 shows per year across fashion and home sectors, from its West Midlands event venue, Cranmore Park Conference and Exhibition centre.
