Detroit Fashion Done Right!

Sunday night, the Hard Luck Vodka was flowing, appetizers were being served and models were walking the runway at the DDF closing party at Detroit City Airport. All three ladies from Hip In Detroit made the trip out to the event to see what a party held at the old airport terminal would be like. There were literally planes throughout the hanger and in front of the runway where the models walked. We got there before the crowd and hung out backstage as the designers dressed their models... the whole experience was really fun, different and exciting.
There were quite a few designers in the show, including Fotoula Lambros, Anastasia Chatzka, Angie McBride (Peace Love Spandex), Emily Thornhill (Homeslice) and Kelly Lynne. Each of the designers have a very different and unique approach to fashion.

Kelly Lynne took us to "The Night Circus", Angie showed us how hard a girl can hustle some spandex, Fatoula shocked the crowd with her light flowing fabrics and contrasting masks, Anastasia showed us how amazing a girl can look in pastels and Emily showed us how to be a true golden girl.

Special shout out to Nahee for the great hair on all the Peace Love Spandex models and the amazing formations that Sandy Bambi created for all of Kelly Lynne's models. Both of you are true artisans of your craft. T & A also treated us to some good music throughout the evening.

We got you all of the behind the scenes and runway footage that you could want! Watch here:
