It’s time to look INDY.
Sunglasses are one of the hottest accessories you can rock to instantly amp up any outfit. INDY is a woman-led independent brand based in Brooklyn, New York, that sells sunglasses inspired by the streets of the big apple. The founder, Indie McFarlane, is originally from Scotland and launched INDY when she was 22 years old from her bedroom floor.
Now based out of Brooklyn, since the brand’s inception in 2017, INDY has successfully gone international with customers reaching across the globe. Indie carefully sources high quality and fashion-forward sunglasses with UV protection to ensure styles are always on-trend and up-to-date. She is drawn to popular vintage styles from the 80s and 90s but her website features a variety of frames, from retro to modern, that you can pair with any outfit.
Not only are the sunglasses found on her website super chic and affordable, but, for every order, one tree is planted as a way for Indie to combine her passion for fashion and love for sustainability into a mission that helps give back to the community. Indie put a ton of work into making INDY what it is today. The brand has been featured in popular publications like British Vogue, and celebs like Alicia Keys have rocked the shades in support of this female-owned brand.
Indie understood the struggle of finding trendy sunglasses at affordable prices so she decided to make them readily accessible for her clientele. Not only does she pack and ship all of the orders herself, but she also does the social media for the brand and develops the designs. This girl boss can do it all! As her brand continues to grow, she is excited about what 2021 has in store and hopes to expand her team in the near future.
