Los Angeles-based Indie Source has been named one of Inc. 5000’s “Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America.“
Of the 7 million businesses who apply for the prestigious honor, only .07% make the final cut. Indie Source ranked in the top 50%. A company that prides itself in going above and beyond and looking ahead, Indie Source pivoted in 2020 to making PPE and designer cloth masks as a way to protect and show gratitude to frontline workers, while also helping sustain livelihoods.
“Indie Source worked tirelessly to produce and donate tens of thousands of masks to hospitals and those in need while staying true to our fashion roots and making headlines with our fashion-forward ‘Independence Mask‘ concept,” said Indie Source CEO and Co-Founder, Zack Hurley.
Chief Operations Officer, Jesse Dombrowiak added, “Being included as one of Inc. 5000’s “Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America” is such an honor and testament to all the hard-working and amazingly all the creative people who contribute to the success of our company every day.”
In keeping with their pioneering spirit, Indie Source is launching a new program called Build-A-Brand to help fashion brands access high-end contemporary fashion products at a fraction of the cost and speed of traditional development and production; Clothing designers can utilize pre-built styles paired with an array of in-stock pre-printed and dyed fabrics and trims, allowing them to get high-quality, finished products to market faster, cheaper, and more efficiently. This new process also uses the latest technology, giving fashion brands access to 3D avatars to completely design their styles before even a single sample is made.
Indie Source has created the blueprint that allows fashion entrepreneurs to save thousands of dollars and the months of arduous work it traditionally takes to launch a designer clothing line from scratch. The products can then be sold at 4X what the blanks industry offers, yielding more profits for new startups.
Not quite ready to start a fashion empire? Indie Source has launched an educational product named the Brand Launch Academy, allowing any industrious clothing entrepreneur — fashion degree or not — the ability to launch their lines in less than 30 days. Indie Source is powering the next generation of independent fashionpreneurs and fashionistas.
Indie Source is an apparent manufacturer and fashion consultancy that has helped over 600 fashion brands develop, manufacture, launch and scale. Based out of Los Angeles’ fashion district, they provide fashion designers with a personalized product development team, access to a network of local and global factories as well as fashion marketing services driving sales for its clients.
