The night kicked off with a light Cocktail hour that allowed some of the guests and panel attendees to catch up, and "talk shop" so to speak. For me, it was a wonderful time to see some familiar Fashion faces I hadn't seen in awhile. Ms. Amy Gutz, stepped in as my date for the evening, and we were able to get some wonderful conversations from some of Detroit's finest. Karen Buscemi and Laura Meniaci of Styleline Magazine, Molly McDonald of the PINK FUND, Shannon Lasovski of GlamorousMoms, Cynthia LaMaide of Lamaide Designs, Raffaela Moda, and Avant Chic, and one of my absolute fave peeps about town, Rino Marra, owner of FIGO SALON in Birmingham and common amongst the backstage preps at NYFW. When the Panel kicked off, Gutz and I were able to sit next to the Damsel herself, Hoda Salameh .

Across the board, there were many wonderful opinions and comments shared that eveining and it is great to see the different types of people that have roles in different types of industries.
One things links it all together, each and every individual on the panel, made it very clear that their own personal style in life, has a large influence on their styles of work. Interesting.
I am always inspired to meet these wonderful people in the biz, from any industry. Their dedication, and success is a prime reflection of what I would like to see in my own future. All these individuals are masters at their craft, and we are so fortunate to have their talents here in DETROIT! Cheers to the next Event!
