It’s not every day you get to see one of your favorite fashion icons, especially in Detroit. A few days ago I was scrolling down my timeline on Facebook, when I read the words André Leon Talley in conversation with Ruben and Isabel Toledo. I immediately checked the location as I thought my eyes were deceiving me. I’m thinking this is totally a New York event, but to my surprise it was being held in Detroit at the Detroit Film Theatre. At that moment, nothing else seemed important, I was going to see Mr. Talley and all of his glory in person.
Mr. Talley led a conversation with renowned artists and designers Ruben and Isabel Toledo. The husband and wife duo discussed their partnership in art, design and life.
During the conversation, images of the Toledo’s work was being displayed in the background. Which I thoroughly enjoyed. The Toledo’s shared how they’d met, what inspires them to create and how they’re each other’s inspiration.
Within the hour, I soaked up all of the knowledge that they shared. Afterwards, they took questions from the audience.
This was an amazing event and I hope this is just a preview of what’s to come for Detroit!
