Sustainable Fashion at INDX Womenswear & Footwear AW20
Showcasing the latest developments in Sustainable Fashion...
INDX Womenswear & Footwear show will focus on showcasing the latest developments in sustainable fashion, as it opens its doors once again to key buyers from independent retailers across the UK.
Fay Derricott at INDX comments:
“Consumers are looking for more eco-friendly fashion and their concerns are not limited to materials and packaging. They’re looking to buy from companies that focus on sustainability across the entire supply chain and all business operations. We are proud to exhibit brands at INDX that have made significant steps to ensure their businesses are sustainable.”
Showcasing new designs and innovative garment compositions at INDX, Geox; an Italian designed footwear and outerwear brand, have embraced a code of ethics programme since 2005. Their path of ‘sustainable innovation’ concerning everything they do, from the materials they use, to the energy they consume, ensures the quality and well-being for all their employees and suppliers. Geox shoe soles contain a minimum of 5% recycled material and only use responsibly sourced leather.
Fair trade lifestyle brand, Weird Fish, have also been hard at work over the last two years introducing an increasing number of sustainable fabrics to their range such as tencel and bamboo. They are also introducing organic cotton to their cotton rich products and more recycled fabrics such as 100% recycled PET and cotton waste into products and trims.
Contemporary clothing brand, Nomads, have been creating ethical fair trade contemporary clothing since 1989, made with natural and organic fibres. Nomads’ mission is to prove that it is possible to live a stylish and sustainable life. AW20 will feature vibrant print collections in organic cotton and eco-friendly fibres.
With a commercial and meaningful selection of brands, designed specifically for the independent department store and boutique sector, the show exhibits the very latest products from over 90 brands. Visitors will be given the chance to see brands exclusive to INDX including Fitflop, Hotter, Crew, Desigual, Mistral, Weird fish and Joe Browns.
Tracy-Anne Fraser at Kanya & Bamboo comments:
“As an independent business we really find that INDX is the ideal show to do the bulk of our buying for our 2 shops. No loud distracting music, great complimentary lunches and after show social networking with all our suppliers in one place. It is a totally professional environment where we can do the majority of our business quickly and easily without feeling exhausted at the end of the day. We are so pleased we discovered this show a few years ago!”
The show allows no press, students, designers or manufacturers, and is focussed on enabling buyers to concentrate on placing orders and planning for their next best seller, in a stress free environment.
