Detroit's Fashion Week - Katerina Bocci's Pre-Sneak Peak Interview!

September 21, 2009

As a native-Detroiter, I can share with confidence that in spite of the dismal economic conditions in Michigan, and the Detroit area in particular, the spirit of people here should not be minimized. I have lived to see this area emerge before from ashes and rubble (literally) to redefine itself.

I am a newcomer to one renaissance occurring in southeast Michigan. Others have worked creatively and diligently in recent years to gain recognition of local talent in the broader fashion arena. I learned recently that Detroit has its own Fashion Week, coinciding with the internationally-recognized runway shows in New York and cities abroad. This past week (Sept. 13-19th) marked the 5th annual Detroit Fashion Week. This is a serious venture as reflected by an article published by CNN Money on September 19th, "Detroit swap: Auto Plants for fashion showrooms".

I recently shared with you in this blog the exquisite work and generous support of Katerina Bocci. Katerina's generosity extends far beyond Breeziway, as evidenced by her role as a major sponsor of Detroit Fashion Week. She was interviewed this morning by the local affiliate of Fox News - WJBK. A Breeziway headpiece was worn by one of her models for this interview in a pre-sneak preview of a few gowns that will appear in her NYC Bridal Couture Week shows in mid-October. How cool is that?! The video stream is below. Please, take a look and share a moment of our excitement. The featured headpiece is a versatile design can also be worn with the horsehair/crin brim oriented toward the face and over one eye.

Thank you, Kat, for your encouragement and support.
