The 2017 NAIAS Proves To Be A Fashionable Affair!
By Robere Lett – Publisher
Press week at the NAIAS is always a hectic world-wind event for the city of Detroit, as the home of the automotive industry we look to this time as a sort of birthing process for the car industry where many new products, styles, and innovations are born. With keen eyes on Detroit, we usher in the press from all over the world and so… it begins.
Throngs of journalists and photo crews from several major countries and news sources all descend in record numbers for a glimpse of what’s to come. Style & Design, of course, go hand in hand and remains an integral part of why we love and celebrate this industry. Along with the many beautiful women and men who help to sell the goods with panache, their participation has long been the key to connecting fashion and automotive. Our Haute is… Magazine roving photographer Darrett Pullins managed to snap some of the “haute” young women and men as he toured this year’s NAIAS show floor.
