One of the best things about being in New York City during the holidays is visiting all the great little pop-up markets. That's why we're so excited to be a part of Northern Grade: Her, the Made in America market's first-ever event featuring women's brands.
The shopping event is happening at Powerhouse Arena in DUMBO on Dec. 6 and 7, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. There will be dozens of great fashion, accessories and home goods labels for you to shop from, whether you're still buying gifts or looking for a little something for yourself. (And again, the really cool thing is that everything is manufactured in America.) Some of the brands we're most excited about include:
Elizabeth Suzann: This Nashville-based label makes the sort of luxe separates that we want to wear everyday. (And a few perfectly minimalist slip dresses, too.)
Tradlands: Menswear-inspired shirting for those of us who are jealous of our boyfriend's perfect button-ups.
Gamine Co.: Workwear-inspired fashion for women.
Fiele Fragrances: Small-batch scents made in Santa Monica.
Check out the entire brand list below. But before we lose you: Don't forget to sign up for Saturday night's panel. On December 6 at 7 p.m., Lauren S. will be moderating "American Design and Manufacturing: A Renaissance?", a 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. Hope to see you there!
