After the recording-breaking event, preparation for July 19 is already well underway. “We have had a phenomenal run of shows,” said show organiser Varsha Chohan. “Last year we opened a second showroom and increased our brand offering to over 150. In February this year we expanded further into a third showroom, with 200 brands on offer.” She continued: “Due to overwhelming demand, we are very excited to announce the opening of a fourth showroom for July 2019, which will give us capacity to offer more than 200 brands to the visiting independent buyers.” As the leading childrenswear trade show in the UK, the waiting list has grown with each season and opening a fourth showroom has given INDX Kidswear the opportunity to invite new brands to take part. To date there are 25 brands which will be making their INDX debut, with an enhanced boyswear offering including first-timers Jack & Jones, Only Kids and Compass.
