IS DETROIT THE NEXT FASHION POWERHOUSE?

Friday, October 15, 2010 · 1 Comment

Detroit has style that’s no secret, but will it become a fashion powerhouse?  With the third major fashion event this year well on it’s way, the city is heading in the right direction. That’s a great move for the city, but are Detroiters ready to switch gears and go from the automotive action to a fashion haven? Absolutely!  Detroit is a city that breeds innovative and fashion forward individuals. In this city you have to dress nice, no exceptions! So it’s only befitting that Joe Faris, former Project Runway contestant and Michigan native created Fashion In Detroit, the next major Fashion event scheduled in the city.

Fashion In Detroit was created to showcase the city as well as provide an outlet for talented designers living here. FID (Fashion In Detroit) is a bi-annual two day fashion extravaganza and in exactly one week you will play witness to its second annual premiere fashion show.

On October 22nd and 23rd Detroit will transform from the Motor city to the Fashion City, with FID as the catalyst for the change. The gritty back drop will vanish and glitz, glamour, and ostentatious flair will emerge.  The event will be held at the ubberly posh Motor City Casino. The two day event will include 12 runways shows from local and national designers. There’s also two scheduled trunk shows, one on each day. This will give you a chance to meet and greet some of your favorite designers and celebrities.

In addition to all of the Haute Couture action that will be running rapid in the Motor City Casino, there’s also luxury giveaways! FID will conclude with an Afterglow party that evening from 8PM to 2AM!  This is surely an event you don’t want to miss. In addition to being the place to be next weekend, FID will help put Detroit one step closer to becoming a force to be reckoned with in the fashion industry!
