Joe Faris, Motor City Blues & Denise Ilitch Designs
The last show of the night featured event hosts Joe Faris (you may know him if you’re a fan of Project Runway) and Denise Ilitch Designs (you may know her if you’re from Michigan!) Our hosts showed their collections together, which my not have worked with any other designers that evening, but it did here.
Joe designs a casual denim collection called Motor City Blues and Denise designs fabulous jewelry and accessories. Both collections have some cool printed T’s too. (The Red Wings logo was of course the most popular) So the models walked the catwalk in a combination on both collections and it worked! A side note on the models, they were all locals rather than the agency ladies and gentleman that walked out earlier. This gave a little extra dimension to the show. The models walked out and smiled when they heard their friends and family cheering!
I love Denise’s designs! You may not be able to view her work properly in a runway show, so please visit www.deniseilitchdesigns.com to see her work up close.
