It was the event that everyone in the industry was waiting for. The Walk 12 Fashion Show! Hundreds of spectators on various levels of the theater roared as our beautiful Detroit models walked and displayed the amazing designs of various brands. More than 40 professional photographers waited at the end of the runway on 3 platform levels. I was basically front and center and got some great shots of every model that adorned the catwalk (only a few are displayed on this page.) Five of the models walking are Worldiction family so you can see how things have grown for me since early summer of this year. I got to talk with Daishawn Franklin (Founder of Walk) and various others for a while before and after the shows. Also, Aliepson was visiting from Atlanta and modeled several brands. I’m hoping I can make it to the Atlanta and NYC Walk shows as well. Detroit is definitely moving up and a big part of it is because of people like Daishawn that effectively organize and manage a world class event such as this. Then, there are all the amazing designers such as Tyrone Hunter (Fly Ty) presenting eye popping art. As mentioned, only a few photos are displayed here, but you can view them all in our 2 Facebook Group albums by clicking the links below. Also, be sure to read the paragraph below that I copied from the Walk page to know a little more about this organization.
DETROIT— WALK Fashion Show, the Midwest region’s largest fashion show for independent designers hosted their 12th annual Detroit show on Saturday, November 14, 2015 downtown at the Garden Theater in booming Midtown. This year, WALK partnered with Catwalk Fashion, raising awareness of HIV/AIDS and using proceeds from the show to benefit the AIDS Walk Detroit effort. The show produced three different fashion showcases to accommodate the ever-growing number of local designers in the area including the WALK Independent Designer Showcase, WALK Emerging Designer Showcase and WALK University’s Children’s Fashion Show.
