This Happened: Detroit Fashion Show Takes Flight To Fight Breast Cancer

By AJ Williams

The What’s Next DTD Pop Up Fashion Show hosted by Detroit’s Pageion, took a figurative flight in October to raise money for Breast Cancer patients while raising the bar for Detroit Fashion Shows. Over 40 Fashion Models, 12 Fashion Designers, 6 Wardrobe stylists, and about a dozen Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists descended upon the Coleman A. Young International Airport located on Detroit Eastside.

A show for a cause and celebration, the producer of the show, Daun Green dedicated the show to her Mother and Aunt, both survivors. The Shades of Pink Foundation assists patients with day-to-day living expenses. In the weeks before the Airport Fashion Show, Daun Green organized a photoshoot with some of the women who have been helped by Shades of Pink. The shoot was designed to be empowering and the photos show just that.

In attendance were notable Detroit Fashion Influencers like Tayion Fashion Suits founder Montee Holland and Celebrity Fashion Stylist Latrice Delgado. Also in attendance were Soave Enterprises founder and CEO, Tony Soave, who served as a sponsor for the event. A special guest appearance by Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones was a highlight of the evening when she took to the podium and bestowed Spirit of Detroit Awards upon the Show’s producer Daun Green, Event Planner Renee Marie and PR Lamus Rush for their charitable work in preparation for this event.

Headlining the show was Diane Barry, the couture dress designer who has styled some of Detroit’s most elite women. A last-minute addition to the Designer list was Front Paije Designs who paired her designs with sunglasses by Prime Collection. Other designers included ingenious menswear designer, K. Walker Collective, who debuted all new pieces for women. For more information on Dusk Til Daun visit
