Detroit is just one day away from its most highly anticipated fashion event of the year. Fashion in Detroit focuses on creative individuals and their designs derived straight from Michigan. This high-style, high-end event started with a bang three years ago and will continue to bring fashion and style back to the city of Detroit.
On Saturday, March 10, 2012, the show and will include back-to-back runway shows scheduled from noon to 6:00 p.m. and will include local and national designers as they preview their Fall / Winter 2012 collections. Joe Faris, a Metro Detroit designer and a previous competitor from the hit television show Project runway, has a strong vision to put Detroit back on the map and make the city a fashion mecca. His business partner, Denise Ilitch is no stranger to fashion or Metro Detroit. She is the co-creator of Ambassador Magazine, whose message is to feature local Detroit talent who are considered “Ambassadors of Detroit”. She is also the creative force behind Denise Ilitch Designs.
In addition to a full day of runway shows, FID will also host Market Detroit, an interactive pop-up shop retail environment showcasing local vendors and designers.
