DETROIT (Tell Us Det) – The Detroit Institute of Arts was filled with the latest couture and the “who’s who’ in the city during Fash Bash the fashion event of the summer. Due to weather conditions the event was brought indoors, but what better place to experience great fashion and art than the Detroit Institute of Arts.

The Founders Junior Council (FJC), a young professionals auxiliary of the Detroit Institute of Arts, presented the event and has outdone themselves each year. During the early years this glamorous event was not held at the DIA, Nicole Eisenberg DIA Board of Directors member, spoke with us about the event and location.

“We’ve brought it back to the Detroit Institute of Arts, and it was the most important place we could have it right here in our city” Nicole Eisenberg.

For the evening guest were dazzled with featured show “Art of Fashion” Neiman Marcus’s signature show in the DIA’s Great Hall. Those who purchased the “Fashionably Late” tickets enjoyed the runway show through a live stream in the DIA. Guest strolled from various rooms enjoying fashion , music and the body art put on display. Models painted in full body art strutted their stuff off the runway as well.

“The growth of Detroit and the creative edge that Detroit is getting has helped my art grow as the city has” Andrea O’Donnell, body art makeup artist.

During the end of the night attendees enjoyed the post- show Paparazzi Party and after glow celebration. Spotting the next Fall fashion trend could have been seen both on and off the runway, as guest were dressed in high fashion attire.

The Founders Junior Council are committed to inspiring new generations of art lovers to show their support for the DIA. More information for being a member may be found at www.foundersjuniorcouncil.org
