an excerpt from metromode.com:
“”[Detroit] Fashion Week was established basically to help to launch the careers of local designers, to bring some credibility and some notoriety to Michigan’s fashion industry,” says Brian Heath, founder and producer of the state’s only such industry event. Now in its sixth year, it will be held at the Royal Oak Farmers’ Market from Sept. 19-25.
“Detroit Fashion Week is different from New York in that we’ve taken the position of not only doing an industry event, but also educating the local design community as to what the industry expects outside of Michigan.” Heath sees this as a way to better educate local designers about the industry’s seasonal buying calendar. While it’s now an established show whose designers have attracted coverage from the likes of CNN Money and Women’s Wear Daily, the event has been quick to welcome new apparel and accessories designers.”
