Welcome to Detroit Fashion Services

There is nothing we find more exciting than encouraging people to discover their true aesthetic and make it shine!  We started our fashion journey consulting and helping other designers to make their collections come to reality via storytelling and bringing out their voices. We work based on the individual designer's personality and style, to help create a full range of garments that reflect their brand image.
