NAIAS 2019 with A Girl’s Guide to Cars

The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) is a big deal in Detroit. I mean, we’re known as the “Motor City” after all! This year marks the 30th anniversary of the NAIAS and the last time that the event will be held at Cobo. In 2020, the show will take place in June, sandwiched between the Grand Prix and the Ford Fireworks.

FashionSpeak 2018: Interview with Phoenix Mellow

There are panel discussions, keynote speakers, live demonstrations (I got to see two students make shoes this time), and a “Meijer Merch Search,” where three small business owners get to pitch their product to Meijer executives. Instead of being a regular conference-goer, I was asked to interview costume designer Phoenix Mellow, the keynote speaker for the event, and write a blog post about my experience at this year’s conference. How cool! Thank you to the Detroit Garment Group team for thinking of me and allowing me the opportunity!
