    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.

Obviously, we're feeling it. Click ahead and familiarize yourself with these totally rad up-and-comers — and show your support by shopping away.
