Independent retailers visiting INDX Homewares, curated by Associated Independent Stores (AIS), on February 21-22 will have the chance to meet some well-known faces from TV and social media – The Style Sisters and Keith Brymer Jones.
The Style Sisters, Gemma Lilly and Charlotte Reddington, are Instagram influencers and styling duo who specialise in the detox, organisation and re-styling of the home and wardrobe. They will be making an appearance on the Turner Bianca stand on February 21 from 1pm to 4pm to introduce their own curated new home textiles collection which will launch for retail during AW23.
The girls have over 15 years’ experience in the fashion and interior industry and embarked upon their unique service organising homes and de-cluttering wardrobes and bedrooms just four years ago. Since then, the pair’s Instagram page has grown to over 270,000 followers following regular appearances on ITV’s This Morning and revamping the residences of celebrities such as Bridgerton’s Luke Newton as well as Jamie & Jools Oliver.
Delegates of the show will be able to get an exclusive viewing of the new Turner Bianca collaboration available for pre-order at the show, as well as chance to get their hands on a signed copy of the Style Sisters’ book ‘Helping you live an organised & stylish life’.
Keith Brymer Jones, master potter, ceramicist and designer, will also be on the Forma House stand on Tuesday and Wednesday morning. Visitors will be able to see Keith in action throwing shapes as he takes to his pottery wheel live at the show.
Keith, who is currently appearing as a judge on The Great Pottery Throw Down, on Channel 4 on Sundays, will be showcasing his award-winning Word range designed for MAKE International. Each range includes a selection of mugs and other accessories, created by Keith on his potter’s wheel at his studio in Whitstable, Kent.
Rachel Breen, head of homewares division, said: “We’re super excited to be hosting Style Sisters and Keith for this show. A lot of hard work and preparation has gone into making our 2023 shows the best they have ever been as we celebrate our tenth birthday later this year. INDX Shows are known for being welcoming, intimate and friendly, as well as the place where independents can get an edge on the big high-street stores. Turner Bianca and Forma House are just two of many suppliers who will be bringing something exciting and new this year.”
