My wardrobe never consisted of anything fur or even faux fur. I personally would never wear any real fur for obvious reasons. No animals need to be harmed for fashion and I stand by that 100%. This season is the first that I started to get into faux fur, simply because it adds a dab of chicness to my ensembles. Especially living in Michigan when the winters are very brisk, a little faux fur goes a long way. The beauty of wearing faux fur, you don't have to break the bank!

I am going to say this once more, no animals should be harmed for fashion.
With love & faux fur,
I had the privilege of attending several fashion shows and events, but nothing was as cute and adorable as what I saw this past Saturday afternoon! Walk Fashion Show returned to Detroit on November 14th and put a wonderful production that gathered many talented designers and brought Metro Detroit people a day of fashion and entertainment. This particular Walk Fashion paired up with Catwalk Fashion to raise awareness to HIV/AIDS. Proceeds from this event are to benefit this cause in Detroit.
I was able to see the Walk Fashion show this past September in New York City which was amazing. I was excited to see that this event was coming back to Detroit, in which I was closer to! What the Walk Family brought back to Detroit was nothing other than amazing. Although I was only able to catch the Walk University Children's Fashion portion! So much talent was presented. Each of the designers had their own flair and concept. Along with the runway show, the attendees were also pleasantly surprised with dance performances. The children that modeled in the shows and performed had more courage than most adults do, including myself! There was sass, confidence, fright, and giggles. There are some future models in the making!

To outsiders, Detroit is a place of violence, bankruptcy & controversy. What people don't know is that this city has been evolving and becoming a place where people now want to be. The fashion industry has been relevant in cities such as New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago but Detroit doesn't come to mind. There are people such as Roslyn Karamoko from Detroit is the New Black that brings forth her vision and creativity here to life.
After meeting her at FashionSpeak 2015, I got the opportunity to check out her store in downtown Detroit and speak more in depth about her brand and store.
When you walk into Detroit is the New Black, it seemed as if you stepped into a gallery and this makes your shopping experience feel exclusive. I don't know about you but I love that feeling! Besides the clothing in the store, there are artwork pieces throughout that are available for sale from local artist Leon Dickey and awesome jewelry made by Nino Bertera. As of current, DITNB is featuring a pop-up of Tracy Reese and the in house label.
I enjoyed meeting Tim, her associate and got to tour the store and also have a sit down with Roslyn herself. She was down to earth and she was more than willing to speak about the brand and also give valuable advice to making it in the industry.
Learning and evolving is something Roslyn values and wants to be part of the development of her brand and store. I admire someone that wants to continue to grow and be aware of what is working and what is not. So I wanted to know, "what is your 5 year plan?" Owning multiple stores and having a flagship store on Woodward Ave. in Detroit is a part of that along with expanding her in house label.
I highly suggest if you are downtown, to check out Detroit is the New Black and get some awesome clothing, shoes, jewelry and maybe even some artwork!
Stay tuned for more to come...
