Every year, over 200 Metro Detroiters and fashion forward Michiganders gather for Michigan’s largest fashion conference “FashionSpeak” created by Detroit Garment Group and presented by Taubman. It’s a one-day conference, which brings together nationally recognized experts in fields crucial to the success to the fashion industry both local and beyond.

This year we were spying, with our little eye, some of the best dressed in the building. Attendees came dressed to impress. Here’s our “Best Dressed” list for the 2017 FashionSpeak event.
