We are looking forward to joining this year’s INDX Kids trade show, 28-29 January, at Cranmore Park, Solihul. This will be our third time at INDX and it's where we met many of our stockists last year, so it's a firm favourite of ours!
INDX Kids is curated by buyers from Associated Independent Stores (AIS) and is the only UK trade show that focuses on childrenswear. As a result, it attracts over 150 UK and international labels, selling a range of products across apparel, footwear and accessories. This makes it the perfect shopping destination for buyers from department stores, garden centres, kidswear shops, and boutiques. Check out INDX Kids show highlights from 2023 for more information (you might even spot us in it!).
During 2023, we grew our wholesale offering, increasing Ducky Zebra stockists from four to twenty one. Building partnerships with independent stores who share our values and commitment to sustainable gifting has been key to our success. We met many of these stores at INDX Kids 2023 - and we’re looking forward to seeing them again this year, as well as meeting new stores and contacts.
During 2024 we plan to continue our steady growth, while staying true to our values. We’re excited about bringing Ducky Zebra to new areas and regions in the UK (and beyond).
“My background isn’t in fashion or retail, and so the thought of attending a fashion trade show was a little daunting. INDX Kids, however, are experts at creating a lovely, relaxed atmosphere - resulting in the perfect environment for genuine conversations and building new connections. We had a brilliant time in 2023, and are looking forward to exhibiting again in 2024.”
Sally Dear, Founder and CEO of Ducky Zebra
