FashionSpeak 2017 presented by Taubman
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.
