This is my first actual fashion post here. During the past 3 weeks I’ve become fond of fashion shows because of the networking opportunities with so many people in the industry. Also, Detroit has some incredibly beautiful and talented models. This was a private event in the Detroit Institute of Arts. When I first entered I was early and could feel something different at this show from the others. There was an open bar and some horderves spread around. I walked back out thinking “I can’t just walk into a private event and intrude with my camera snapping.” Then, I remembered I was actually invited by a model to this event so I re-entered and was warmly welcomed by everyone. Something I’ve really grown to like at fashion shows is that everyone gives photographers our space and they did the same here. This show was for the first showing of some of Torpedo by Ashley Harvey’s new designs. I’m really surprised to discover we have amazing designers such as her right here in Detroit! The outfits are beautiful to say the least and they made them even more intriguing by wearing Asian conical hats. Much of the credit for this event goes to Desiree Nicole -Stylist/Creative Managing Director for her exquisite success in putting this all together. Remember I said this is my first fashion post, so I welcome any suggestions and criticisms from other fashion bloggers on my presentation style of the photos. I did a dynamic pop filter on every photo just to make them unexpectedly unique. Click on a photo to begin viewing the gallery.
