Detroit Design Festival Closing Party

The Detroit Design Festival Closing Party "Runway Detroit, presented by Detroit by Design this past Sunday, marked the launch of my new collection. It was so much fun to finally see these looks walk down the runway. 

Along side designers Fotoula Lambros, Anastasia Chatzka, Emily Thornhill of Homeslice and Angela McBride of Peace Love Spandex, and an excellent student show from AIDT, it really made for a great showcase of Detroit's talent. Below are some behind the scenes photos from the event. Special thanks to Chastity Tappen from Blank Canvas Detroit and her assistant Brandi Myree for the beautiful make up and Sandy Bambi from Grateful Dreads for her wicked hair styles. Also couldn't have done it without Rebecca Voigt's styling assistance, and obviously, all 11 of my beautiful models. Thank you everyone who helped make this show amazing. It was an honor to be a part of this.
