Development Overview

01. PROJECT PLANNING

First, we collect any reference samples you may have and your application form. Then your project manager will help set up financial targets and confirm your material and fit details.

02. SOURCING MATERIALS

We work with local vendors to source high quality materials and ensure we hit your target price points. Choosing in-stock items can dramatically reduce lead times.

03. PATTERN MAKING

Work with our expert pattern makers to engineer the features and fit of each style. Patterns are the blueprint from which all clothing is made from.

04. SAMPLE MAKING

Our Sample Makers hand cut and sew your garments with expert detail. Samples are made to test fit and functionality.

05. REVISIONS

Here you’ll have a fitting with our team and identify alterations for your next round of samples. While our competitors average 5 revisions, we average 1 to 2.

06. PRODUCTION TRANSITION

With your sample approved, we are ready to begin pre-production. Place your purchase order to begin your first production run!

    Indie Source is truly an amazing company, going into starting my own line was very nerve wrecking but after meeting with Zack and Dean today, I definitely felt my ideas were all put into perspective and am excited to move forward. The project planning meeting was something I was very nervous for, but as soon as I walked in the door, I was greeted by many smiling faces that were interested in my brand and knowing what I wanted to accomplish. I felt very supported by the entire team and I also felt a sense of relief after leaving. The project planning meeting helped me to establish realistic goals for myself and really gave me a clear view as to what to expect as a new business. I appreciate the support from Zack and the Indie Source team and I am mega excited to get things going!

    When I was in Vegas attending Sourcing At MAGIC, I saw a presentation by Zack at Indie Source. His company and his ideas sounded really useful. I’m a new company with a bunch of great ideas and goals but no game plan on how to achieve them. So I made an appointment for a Development Kickoff Meeting with Zack the next day and we started on that game plan. He gave me the direction, focus, and the tools I needed to get things up and running. Thanks for the awesome meeting! Looking forward to the next step!
