At Indie Source, you'll get everything you need to start your fashion line

Development Overview


First, we collect any reference samples you may have and your development cheatsheet. Then you and your Brand Consultant will help set up financial targets, material and fit details and provide a project quote.


Your Project Manager works with local vendors to source high quality materials and ensure we hit your quality and target price points. Choosing in-stock items can dramatically reduce lead times. All information we source from our vendors is passed on to you for 100% transparency.


Our expert pattern makers engineer the features and fit of each style using the latest pattern makings software. Patterns are the blueprint from which all clothing is made from. Don’t worry you get to keep your patterns and they can be used by any factory in the world.


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


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.


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! Michele & Chuck, IvaMichele Activewear,

    Starting a clothing line can be pretty stressful and confusing. I was very nervous going into the kickoff meeting because I didn’t have a strong grasp on fabrics and the details of the clothing. Although leaving the kickoff meeting I felt such a relief and excitement. Jarahme was very knowledgeable and had great patience in helping me communicate my vision. Anyone that wants to start a clothing line or is curious about starting one, should experience a kickoff meeting to get a clear understanding.

    Indie Sourcing is exactly the company I’ve been looking for! I’ve tried to do it myself, but too much! I have a patent pending design and I will contact this company for help. Thanks, Kathy.
