The first day of Fashion in Detroit has come to an end but the party has really just begun. After five hours of high fashion, runway models and top designers, fans are eager to go back tomorrow for more stylish fun.
Joe Faris, of Project Runway, started the show with leather jackets, burnout Tee’s and jeans for Schott N.Y.C. Faris displayed his hot masculine looks for men until the very end when the only female model in the Schott show made the crowd gasp with delight as she stepped out from backstage. She wore a black biker bustier and black Perfecto skinny jeans. So stunning, the designer took his finale walk down the runway with her by his side.
Schott N.Y.C was followed by PS. by Peter Soronen, displaying form fitted party dresses that shined in sequins and shimmered in metallic fabrics. Peter also took his finale walk with a model wearing a black bustier and black liquid leggings. His designs were nothing less than perfect for women who love to be classy yet sexy at the same time.
Dana Keaton, known for her one of a kind designs featuring oragami like fabric folds and feminine cuts showed the audience what she is truly made of on the FID runway. A vibrant and talented designer who displays her youth and happy attitude through her clothing took the audience by surprise when her line was more than fun and vibrant .
Marlaina Stone was the next designer to take the show to a higher level. With necklaces ranging from $900 to $6,000, Marlaina has a reputation of making Detroit’s best hand made jewelry. One of the highlights of the day was when Marlaina’s designs rocked the runway with models wearing sexy slip dresses with hot lace and ruffled trim. The line was extraordinarily amazing to say the least, with hand crafted artwork on their necks, it’s a surprise anyone noticed what the models where wearing. As a whole, the slip dresses and necklaces were stunning together. Clothing changes weren’t necessary for this designer, models took a turn on the runway, then quickly changed their necklace and went back out to show a wide variety of Marlaina’s creations.
Designer, Kevan Hall ended the show with glorious evening gowns made with long fluid fabrics that graced the runway. Many FID fans had left before even seeing Hall’s line, and they truly missed a spectacular designer with designs never seen before on a Detroit Runway. It’s no wonder Kevan has dressed celebrities like Vanessa Williams and Katherine Heigl. His runway designs at Fashion in Detroit were a very glamorous way to end the evening.
Tomorrow starts a new day at Fashion in Detroit. The show starts at 2:00pm with Joe Faris and North Beach Leather and ends with a Made in Detroit finale, with a rumored appearance by none other than, Kid Rock. If Kid’s going to be there, are you?
