If you’re looking for inspiration - and I’ve said this on here before - go to Detroit. Our fair city in a constant state of struggle can surprise you to lengths you can’t find anywhere else. While in large hubs, it’s always been fairly easy to find a gathering of any given point of interest, in Detroit it hasn’t. Until now. 

More and more, creative types, entrepreneurs, and overall enthusiasts are flocking to Michigan in the search of a space and a voice. And here, that you will find.

Michigan F.A.S.H Fest: The “Reveal” Beauty and Trend Showcase was a beautifully created event of fashion as art & art as fashion. The interchangeability was palpable, and I couldn’t tell where one started and the other began. And to me, that’s exactly the purpose of The “Reveal.”

Located at the Carr Center, a 118-year-old building in midtown Detroit, the event brought together a collaborative showcase of local artists in an array of different exhibits from photography, to 3D hair sculptures on live models, a jewelry display, an interactive fine art showcase, and the big reveal of the mystery theater space.

Serenaded by the beautiful sound of violins, I fell in love with the space as soon as I walked in. For its grandiosity and flaws that tell a story and show a history (they want to renovate it, which is amazing, but the thought of losing the breathtaking aged spirit of this place breaks my heart) and I hope to be back again.

I immensely enjoyed attending this showcase and being surrounded by the ubiquitously creative, incessantly aspiring, and undeniably fabulous people of Detroit.

OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!

I’ve decided to kick my editing up a notch for this post. Because while professionally, I am a copywriter, my path to getting there included {countless} hours with my head buried in Photoshop, InDesign, and the likes. And although I do get to work within those programs every once in a while, it’s nice to be able to just have fun with it.
