Detroit is fiercely working towards becoming “the next fashion city” and it’s become more evident in the budding businesses, each with their own unique message. Women’s clothing in Detroit is cool because several of these fashion brands are pushing boundaries by offering more inclusive unisex collections. These clothes are not only about what people are wearing, but what the Detroit arts & culture scene is saying.
