The Detroit Fashion Community’s (DFC) 2023 Board Pinning Ceremony was fashionably staged at “A Flair To Remember” in Clinton Township, Mich. by event specialist and the evening’s venue sponsor Shameka McHenry Events.
On Jan. 4 over 100 Detroit fashion, lifestyle, and beauty entrepreneurs and business owners joined the DFC to officially induct and ceremoniously pin its new board of directors, including:
Founder – Latrice Delgado-Macon
Executive Director – Lauren M. Woodson
Co-Director – Evan Hazlett
Secretary – Sabrina Athena
Director of Membership – April Sutton-Dudley
Director of Marketing – Monika Marie
Director of Events – Kevin Maples
Director of Outreach – Milton Putman
Director of Sponsorship – Dawn Patterson
The lavish ceremony was hosted by “The Voice of Detroit,” 97.9 WJLB-FM radio, Dr. Darrius. Patrons of the event helped to make DFC’s first fundraising effort of the year a huge success. Proceeds benefited the DFC mission to enrich the community with resources to thrive in any fashion sector that speaks to their inner muse.
Immediately following the DFC Board Pinning Ceremony, the first monthly “DFC Connects” networking event kicked off with a live band performance by KP Entertainment, who kept the evening’s vibe at a stylish level. Attendees were encouraged to mix, mingle, and network with the fashion and small business community over complimentary hors d’oeuvres and a curated cocktail experience provided by Mobil Mixers.
The final chic detail was the generous gifting sponsored by Dior and Macy’s. Can we take a moment to recognize the best dressed of the day?
