    Although I like many of the big (eccentric) designers, I LOVE the small indie designers. I enjoy discovering a new talent with a yet to known name. Who are some of your favorite indie designers?

    Some of mine are Sistahs Harlem

    I like a lot of south korean and brazilian designers - although I don't think they'd be exactly indie

    if you go to www.firstview.com you can browse through collections of a lot of desginers some of which are awesome. But you need a password to check out the latest

    by the way I like the first outfit a lot :flower:

    Red Threds by Alison Nelson in San Francisco. Not only does she have one of the nicest and most contagious smiles on the planet, but her clothes are awesome.

    I like that RedThreds,Atelier posted too.

    Sistah's-equally cool. B)

    I think indie designers should be appreciated-young and more established. You see so many ideas from them that sometimes lacks within the mainstream and sometimes even in the Avant-Garde. But this does not leave out those that are popular and still doing it all on their own.
