Detroit Design Festival

If you have been reading this blog, then you know that fashion is my passion. Clothes are my version of crack and like any good drug addict, I cannot get enough. Thanks to the Detroit Design Festival taking place September 19-23, I will be able to get my fix this weekend. The festival consists of tons of events held in different venues over a 5-day span. A full list of events can be found here, there is just too much happening for me to be able to tell you about all of it.
There is a kick-off party, at 3011 W Grand Blvd, Detroit, at 6 p.m. on the 19th and a closing party on the 23rd. Both of the parties are do not miss events. The kick off will put you in the same room with a lot of people that will showing, working and creating throughout the weekend. The closing party will feature some of the biggest designers that the city has to offer.

The closing party will begin at 7 p.m. on the 23rd and is the highlight of the weekend for many reasons, including where it is being held. Remember a few years ago when we had the Super Bowl in Detroit? Well, at the time Playboy rented an airplane hangar and threw one of the best parties that the city has ever seen. The airplane hangar will be host to many designers including Anastasia Chatzka, a former Michigan resident turned Chicago store owner; Fotoula Lambros who designs her own couture line; Kelly Lynne, who we have told you about in the past (we love what she does to fabric); and Angie McBride, none other than the creator and owner of the famous Peace Love Spandex line. Music will be provided by a few local DJ's, including our favorite T&A also known as Ernie Guerra and Steven Robert. There will be a gallery featuring fashion photography and an exhibit on the hanger itself. The whole night is being hosted by Ashley Elyse from Channel 95.5 and William Malcolm from Drive Radio. 

Tickets for the event are available either here or here.

We cannot wait to get our fashion on this weekend and we hope to see you around town at one of the many events!
