indyvin is directed by maker Stephanie Nugent, with technical support by Robin Cox. It is an Indianapolis-based, woman-run business dedicated to environmental sustainability via the slow-fashion movement. With “green” as our base, our mission is to revitalize historical fashion through vintage resale and handcrafted garments for one-of-a-kind people.
indyvin grew out of Nugent’s passion for reselling, up-cycling, and creating 60’s/70’s inspired original fashion.
We have a strong online presence (Poshmark and Depop) primarily designed for vintage and couture resale. As a maker, Stephanie's work has quickly grown as well, with sales/commissions available through this website, Depop/Poshmark, and in-person at pop-up markets.
However, you will NOT find us on Instagram or Facebook Market Place! With an understanding that these resources are of benefit to many small businesses, we seek a slower real-life pace, focused on in-person engagement.
To communicate directly or schedule an in-person meeting, message us through this website and leave your cell # if you wish to speak to a real human :) Stephanie will call you back! Please also consider joining our mailing list to receive notifications of in-person pop-up events.
have a one-of-a-kind piece made just for you!
Every piece I create is made with second-hand (often vintage) materials -making each piece unique! Occasionally, I will find a large bolt of awesome fabric, with which I am able to make multiple pieces, but my creative drive will cause me to at least make variations :)
When sourcing vintage pieces in particular, I have a deep respect for the history represented and the work represented in their original creation. For this reason, my decision to mend, up-cycle, or recycle is highly influenced by the vintage/condition of each piece. Aesthetically, I am a sucker for the 1960’s/70’s, with patchwork and bellbottoms a staple in my work.
I also know the importance of fit in one’s favorite pair of jeans (particularly around the bum). For this reason, when creating on commission, my priority is to take a client’s measurements and/or find the perfect pair of base jeans. I have heaps of vintage jeans in my collection and welcome a client to supply their own source material. Some clients have commissioned me to make something from a quilt that has been in their family for several generations, others bring beloved items they have acquired and wish to make wearable.
Commissions start at $150. I will provide a quote before beginning work so client and I are on the same page. A deposit of $100 is paid upfront with the remaining balance to be paid upon receipt of garment.
I am committed to creating pieces you absolutely LOVE! Please see our policies here below.
RETURNS & REFUNDS
I am a one-woman business and every piece takes hours to source, design and create. For this reason, I do not accept returns. However, it is also my passion to make clothes that my customers adore! So, please do reach out to me if your order is not satisfactory and I will work with you to get it right!
When shipping out completed purchases, I am typically able to ship within three days and will notify customers if there is any reason for a delay beyond that. When creating/shipping custom orders, I will work with the buyer to determine a mutually agreeable turnaround time.
