Detroit's fashion darling, Emily Thornhill, graced the Fashion In Detroit 2012 runway with her eco-chic A/W 2013 collection under her label, Homeslice. This is Em's first solo presentation at FID since breaking off with Femilia Couture - whom are, by the way, major FID veterans. Still staying true to organic, eco-friendly fabrics, Ms. Thornhill threw some new flavor in the mix by creating original textiles, and in true Detroit fashion, the textile patterns are inspired by GM's Renaissance Center building. The color palette is in high-contrast, black and white, with bold blues and salmon hues. Strong shoulder structuring, and on the other hand, some shoulder cut-outs, also played a role here. Flowy all-over, comfort was not rendered out as the garments sustained its total chicness. In an interview with Motown Couture colleague, Lala Trips, Thornhill explains that this collection is inspired by clean lines, a little bit of Motown's own Aretha Franklin circa 1970's, and really, just a whole lotta Detroit.
