Fashion in Detroit launches Oct. 22

Twelve runway shows to be featured during annual event


Michigan's premier annual fashion event, Fashion In Detroit, will put a style spotlight on Michigan from Oct. 22-23 at MotorCity Casino Hotel.

Fashion In Detroit is a two-day fashion event co-founded by Joe Faris of "Project Runway," along with Karen Buscemi, K'Kio Hardin, Lians Jadan and Leslie Ann Pilling, to create a venue that fills the needs of many locally based designers and the Michigan fashion community.

The event includes 12 runway shows by a collection of local and national designers (see the list below), designer trunk shows/meet and greets, "Cheers Michigan" product displays, a VIP private reception and an Afterglow bash. Each day's admission ticket includes six fashion shows, gift bags, a souvenir guidebook/lookbook, entrance to the trunk shows and eligibility for high-end giveaways.

Fashion In Detroit will feature top models showcasing the best designs of Spring/Summer 2011. The spacious seating arrangements allow room for 700 buyers, fashion industry insiders, VIP guests and fashion lovers each day.

Tickets are on sale now via Ticketmaster and range from $35-$125 for each day's runway shows/trunk shows and $50 for the Afterglow party. MotorCity Casino Hotel is also offering a discounted room rate of $119 per night so fashionistas can check in for the weekend, bring their wardrobes and not miss a moment of the annual high-end event.
