Brytnei Massanotti was simply inspiring with her
take on 1930’s to mid- 20th century clothing styles
which included Baroque, Rococco, Classical, Edwardian, and

era’s in costume history well. Bocci’s collection was
brilliant and you could clearly see her passion in the
construction and arrangement of her beautiful designs.
Truely a magnificient designer to watch out for.
Last but certainly not least was Fleurty by JL designs
which showcased her soft designs . JL says,”her skirts
are considered her soft designs, and her hard designs are
her corsets.” Her collection was very impressive, and a

goes out to all of the designers for their hard work and
fantastic collections. Detroit has amazing talent!
