Mix and mingle with Detroit’s best-dressed

Hour Detroit’s annual Best Dressed Fashion Show will be taking place tonight at The Fillmore Detroit. Presented by the Somerset Collection and featuring a full on runway fashion show by Neiman Marcus, it’s always one of the most exciting, elegant, and enjoyable events of the year in downtown Detroit. Any and all over 18+ years of age are welcome and tickets are still available at www.hourdetroit.com. The event will benefit the DIA Founders Junior Council and feature some of the best dressed honorees highlighted in this month’s Hour Detroit Magazine.

For anyone who hasn’t heard of or attended this event in previous years, it’s a once-a-year opportunity to mix and mingle with some of Detroit’s A-listers in the fashion scene. Neiman Marcus and the Somerset Collection always do a tremendous job putting on the event, and for any aspiring professionals and fashionistas looking to learn about or meet people in the industry – tonight is the perfect opportunity to rub elbows with the right people and get excited about fashion!

If you’re interested in attending it’s important you know that the event is much more than just the runway! An entire evening of fabulous fashion kicks off at 5pm with a champagne reception at The Whitney. Doors open to The Fillmore at 6pm with complimentary appetizers and a cash bar before the big event. The actual Neiman Marcus Fashion Show starts at 8pm and will offer both general admission tickets and reserved runway seating. To close the night is the Official After Party back at The Whitney around 9pm. Last year’s first ever was such a hit that organizers decided to bring it back this year bigger and better!

So, have you cleared your calendar yet? Buy your ticket and dress to impress in cocktail attire, and then head downtown to celebrate fashion and have some fun. See you there! More information can be found at www.hourdetroit.com.
