The Director of the new Detroit Fashion Community (DFC), Elizabeth Kincaid, is in the studio this week Fashioncast fans and she’s making headlines about the launch of the organization. While careful not to reveal too much before the official launch date, January 1, 2020, Elizabeth tells us plenty about DFC’s mission, objectives, and partner collaborators.
Detroit Fashion Community’s Founder and President, Latrice Delgado-Macon, who has been a guest on Fashioncast several times, is the creative energy behind the organization. Together with Latrice and a dedicated board, Elizabeth will orchestrate day-to-day activities and help build the outreach and collaborative partnerships that will be instrumental in making Detroit a fashion destination.
In addition to news about the DFC, Christine and Mike manage to tease out Elizabeth’s own background and experience in the fashion industry including how her Native American lineage has provided her inspiration for her own new business starting sometime in 2020.
It’s a fascinating personal story with deep roots in West Virginia that winds its way to Detroit. We find out how, and along the way, we also discuss Elizabeth’s degree and work in psychology and the new role psychology is playing in fashion education.
Of course, Mike asks a predictable sustainability question or two to wrap up the show. Whew! So much discussed about different areas of the industry on this show, we’re certain your weekly fashion update will be complete. Enjoy!
