Detroit may be turning into a fashion mecca

Whether you’re a fan of fedoras, fur jackets or gator-skinned shoes, whether you’re high-fashion-fabulous or techno-grunge, Detroit is the spot to study, experience, manufacture and find the fashion you’re looking for.

Detroit is a fashion hub, say some. Some say it has always been.

Detroiters are known for setting fashion trends around the globe. Behemoths in the fashion industry, such as Motown and Cadillac are no strangers to our downtown shopping malls and suburban centers. They use these areas to launch new products and retail shops.

Fashion brands are finally recognizing that Detroit is a great city for fashinonistas.

It’s also a place where fashion professionals are engaging the next generation of designers and building an ever-expanding infrastructure where each generation helps the next crop thrive.
