The AIS Fashion division is comprehensive in its offering across Womenswear, Menswear, Accessories, Intimate apparel and Childrenswear.

At the INDX Shows Members are able to source and buy many leading fashion brands across all sectors. It is our aim to negotiate exclusive Member only terms with the brands to enhance Members margins and drive profitability.

In addition we design and develop two own label ranges for Men and Women.

First Avenue

First Avenue is a womenswear brand and is exclusive to Members. The brand offers head to toe wardrobe solutions for the modern woman. The ranges follow fashion trends for a mature customer delivering new and innovative styles each season.

Haworth

Our Menswear brand is designed with particular attention to quality and fit. Haworth offers timeless contemporary pieces to suit a casual lifestyle, alongside co-ordinating classics, effortlessly creating a complete look.

First Avenue and Haworth help to support the Independent retailer ensuring quality, style and above all outstanding value, exclusively to AIS Members. Providing Members with a unique selling feature a point of difference and higher margins than that of average branded margins.
