Lately the energy of what is starting to look like a fashion industry in Detroit has got me inspired and excited. Aside from a main strip of retail starting to form downtown right off the main street Woodward, there are some really cool ready-to-wear fashion brands beginning to bloom. And what I mean by ready-to-wear is legit stylish wearable separates by Detroit designers. (Definition of fashion designer here.) What makes this so exciting for me is that some of these brands are exactly what I would call 'Detroit fashion'. For those of you who are still trying to hone in on what Detroit fashion is or Detroit's identity in the fashion world... Allow me to sum it up for you:
Contemporary urban street chic.
This oversized sweater is the epitome of contemporary urban street chic with it's mesh paneling and designer feel.
When a designer's perspective connects the spirit of Detroit's grit and fierceness while being on trend and unique... welcome to Detroit fashion.
