(n)When someone has indie cred it usually means that they are familiar with independent movements in cultural sectors such as art, music, fashion, and will most likely be an advocate for such changes. They are usually concentrated in urban areas that are known for their facilitation of underground cultural exchanges and are recognisable by their bold yet suave adornments. Many are visual art, design, drama or music students and fall under the under 30's age group.
