There are plenty of great American-made women's brands, and it seems like they've never been prouder to showcase their local manufacturing and production processes. On Dec. 6 and 7, more than 20 of those labels will be stationed at Powerhouse Arena in Brooklyn's Dumbo neighborhood for Northern Grade: Her, a pop-up market that'll feature women's clothes, accessories and home goods from U.S.-made brands like Fiele Fragrances, Gamine Co. and Tradlands.
Northern Grade's traveling market hops from city to city selling U.S.-made goods, but this is the first time it has invited women's brands, which is why we're so excited to be partnering with them on the event. On Saturday night at 7 p.m., Fashionista Editor at Large Lauren Sherman will be moderating "American Design and Manufacturing: A Renaissance?", a panel discussion featuring Lucky Senior Fashion Writer Jayna Maleri, Of a Kind Co-founder Erica Cerulo, That Kind of Woman Founder Katherine Keegan, jeweler Page Sargisson and Knickerbocker Mfg. Co. Co-owner Andrew Livingston. We'll be talking all things Made in America, from what it takes for a brand to produce locally, to what the epithet means to the modern shopper. Also: there will be booze! From local brand Brooklyn Gin, no less.
Get your ticket here. And don't forget to arrive an hour or two early to finish up your holiday shopping. (Powerhouse Arena's address is 37 Main Street, Brooklyn, NY in case you were wondering.) Here's a full list of brands that'll be on hand:
