INDX Intimate Apparel will expand the footprint of its AW18 exhibition to accommodate a high demand from lingerie, swimwear and nightwear brands.
Associated Independent Stores, the organiser behind the trade fair, will open a new showroom on the first floor of Cranmore Park Exhibition Centre in February, making way for several additional labels.
The showroom, which boasts floor-to-ceiling windows, will play host to luxury brands including Simone Perele, Pleasure State, Tallulah Love, Katherine Hamilton, Heidi Klum Intimates and Elle Macpherson Body – the latter of which will be making its global tradeshow debut.
INDX Intimate Apparel returned in August with more than double the usual number exhibitors following the closure of Moda Lingerie and Swimwear. It also extended its format, opening on a Sunday for the first time.
Chief organiser Amanda Partridge said: “INDX was already significantly expanded when we welcomed a record number of brands to the show in August so we are absolutely delighted to be able to expand the show even further next February! The additional space will enable us to offer buyers an even more inclusive brand selection and the new showroom will have a more exclusive and luxury feel.”
More than 160 brands are confirmed to exhibit at INDX when it opens on February 18.
The UK Lingerie Awards will take place on the second night of INDX at St Johns Hotel, a short drive from the exhibition. Click here to book your tickets now.
