What would it take to make Detroit a new fashion hub?

New York? London? Milan? Paris?
No one will dispute those cities’ claim to being fashion hubs.

Karen Buscemi is the editor of StyleLine magazine. She’s also the founder and managing partner of the Detroit Garment Group Guild. Their motto: “Keep Michigan Talent In Michigan.”
To that end, the Detroit Garment Group Guild recently held FashionSpeak2013, a one-day networking and conference for Michigan’s fashion industry.
Buscemi talked to us to get a sense of what exactly Detroit’s burgeoning fashion scene looks like.
