This Month BLAC Shines a Light on Detroit’s Most Fashionable.

We are celebrating metro Detroiters that exemplify personal style in our second annual Stylemakers feature. These ten trendsetters come from varying backgrounds, professions and ages but they all share a love for fashion, style and individualism. They are truly beautiful inside and out as they contribute their time and energy to causes that they are passionate about and matter to Black Detroiters. Along with our style partner, Neiman Marcus, BLAC is excited to introduce you to our 2022 BLAC Stylemakers.
