I look these indie people that is similar to Hipster? Honest, Hipster and Indie aren’t my personal taste. I’m edgy. I just want to know what is Indie. Do you know that indie meaning?

Indie and hipster are just labels. I feel like “hipster” has a more derogatory connotation, and is often made fun of (i.e. wears fake glasses, smokes american spirits, wears american apparel, drinks PBR, only listens to ‘obscure’ music etc) .
I’ve always thought indie was more used in reference to art (i.e. film, literature), but I could be mistaken.

its like “edgy” and “rock” there’s small distinctions between the two. i agree with the statement above. i don’t really know too much more about the two.

I think it started out as “independent” meaning they didn’t want to promote certain brands/labels or try to support smaller clothing makers whereas hipsters purposefully seek out something they think no one knows about to make them feel special/underground.

Proper indie has been and gone in my opinion, it was a 90’s thing.

I usually consider indie to mean independent, and the style to represent “out of the box” and edgy designs.
