Washington, DC — From Friday, May 29 through Sunday, May 31, Northern Grade — the nationally acclaimed roving marketplace featuring American manufactured brands – will land in DC for the first time. The two-day, open-to-the-public retail experience is free and will take place inside of Union Market’s Dock 5 space, located adjacent to the market.

Dock 5 is home to a number of previous, high profile fashion events, including the Gilt Warehouse Sale and Thread. This May, the space will transform into a bazaar-like journey, showcasing a variety of local and national men’s and women’s fashion creatives, along with music, spirits and fine cuisine.

Market-goers may recognize the exclusive made-in-the-USA market from previous host cities, including Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Chicago and Minneapolis.

“After collaborating last year with GQ and Fashionsita for separate men’s and women’s marketplaces, we are beyond excited for the launch of our first combined event in Washington, DC at Union Market,” says Northern Grade co-founder Katherine McMillan. “We have produced 21 events all around the country over the last few years, but this will be the most diverse line up of brands we have ever had involved in terms of style and product offerings”.
