“Tracy Reese comes home for a trunk show with DITNB” Last Saturday was a busy afternoon in downtown Detroit; people were walking up and down Woodward Avenue where you will find the flagship store for Détroit Is The New Black.  A tall black building with floor to ceiling windows out front, and a tall sculpture visible from the street – a first look at the type of art found inside the space.  Traffic was steady, bringing in women and men to see what DITNB is all about – fashion, art, and culture.
