Detroit may be turning into a fashion mecca — or maybe it always has been
“While Detroit may still be on the journey to solidify its status as a global fashion Mecca, the city's growing reputation as a hub of creativity, innovation, and unique style is garnering attention and admiration worldwide,”
- Ken Walker, founder and designer of K. Walker Collective in Detroit's Midtown.
“I’m still blown away that my brand was invited onto a global stage like Pitti Uomo to showcase authentic Detroit style. The experience opened my eyes to how far we have come as a city and the common threads that we have with international markets such as Italy.”

K. Walker Collective is the first private label brand to have its own flagship store in the Midtown neighborhood.

“I aim for K. Walker Collective to be completely positioned as a trailblazing lifestyle brand, not just a clothing brand,” the Detroit native says in a press release.

“I want my store to be a beacon of hope and to be creative inspiration for the youth. Community is at the core and our store will show the world that Detroit is an undeniable fashion-forward city.”

When guests walk into the 1,700-square-foot shop, they are met with a minimalistic, open-concept layout, which is what Walker envisioned.
