    Fashion Week in New York City is always a fast-paced, no-sleep, running-on-fumes time for anyone even close to the industry. But, some designers have decided to forgo the catwalk madness and slow down — not only for NYFW, but entirely.

    These indie acts are as dedicated to style as they are to how their products are made. And, earlier this month, they all came together in the West-Village based Market 605 pop-up shop. There, you were able to browse clothes, accessories, jewelry, home goods, and gifts from Dirty Librarian Chains, Feral Childe, Gamma Folk, Imago-A, Nettie Kent, Study NY, Kordal, and by / natalie frigo — names you'll know (and be able to shop!) all about in a minute.

    Most of the eight brands are designed and produced entirely in New York utilizing sustainable materials and ethical practices. Besides the common thread of using similar production methods, the women in this group also share an idealogical connection — a bond over doing things differently than the mainstream. Obviously, we're feeling it. Click ahead and familiarize yourself with these totally rad up-and-comers — and show your support by shopping away.

20 Formal Frocks You'll Wear Over & Over Again

The number of dresses we've worn only once and then stashed away in the dark corners of our closets is truly abhorrent. Among them: the asymmetric, one-shoulder sheath we wore to our cousin's wedding; an overly embellished lace number read
