If by any chance you missed this year's IMAGINE Fashion Show, here is a look at a select variety of talent. The event was hosted by William Malcolm (Men's Wear Designer) and Channing Pierce (Miss Michigan, who looked Stunning in her Black Dress: by Bonnie Foley) and from what I understand those who presented work were edited by a local pool of Designers ( Wound Menswear- Sara Lapinski, Fatoula Lambrose, and Adriana Pavon, to name a few ) beforehand.
I enjoyed the brevity of the show and found the designers work and point of view to be interesting and impressive. I give them each verbal respect for following their passion, for working so hard to develop their skills and for being part of the emerging Fashion industry here in Detroit.
I also want to give a shout out to the pool of Models in the show. They were lovely, very professional and full of personality, which helped to make the experience more enjoyable. Matter of fact, the Fashion Designers in general seemed excited and proud of their work and that was neat to see.
Best of Show went to Cheryl Jackson, who's collection was really hip and sassy, the kind of stuff that keeps young Women running to the malls. Congratulations to her!
I want to Thank International Academy of Design & Technology for their dedication to Fashion and to growing the pool of talent in this region's emerging market.
