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?
