ABOUT US

INDY is a women-led, affordable, fashion-forward eyewear brand based in Brooklyn, NY. Designer and founder, Indie McFarlane, who grew up in Scotland, moved to London at 17 to study photography. While there, she became interested in fashion styling and assisted celebrity stylists including Mel Ottenberg and Peter Aluaanwho worked with clients including Rhianna and Jude Law. 

Indie's passion for fashion, particularly with sunglasses and accessories, lead Indie to launching INDY from her bedroom floor, using her pay checks from her bar jobs to invest into INDY. Indie has always said how confident sunglasses make her feel, so she wanted to share that confidence with others through her own designs.

INDY (a play on her name) quickly became well known for its vintage-inspired affordable eyewear with modern twists, including colorful transparent lenses, exaggerated shapes and snappy wording on frames. The brand has been seen in Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Nylon, Vice, Popsugar, WWD, among others and has been worn by celebs fans including Alicia Keys, Bretman Rock, and more.

"Between the celebrity sightings and magazine placements, Brooklyn-based Indy eyewear may seem like a huge operation. It's actually a one-woman show by designer Indie McFarlane, who channels New York City's bustling energy into sunglasses anyone, anywhere will want to wear." - Harper's Bazaar
