D-Town Darling: Roslyn Karamoko
Roslyn Karamoko is bringing a new mantra to the Motor City: DÉTROIT IS THE NEW BLACK. And she wants you to wear it with pride! Roslyn’s locally-made clothing line Détroit is the New Black (DITNB) is all about capturing facets of the history and the modern renaissance happening within Detroit. After several years as a retail buyer, Roslyn founded her line to bring a localized, high end retail experience to a predominantly commercial retail district—and to more importantly start a conversation. Her brick-and-mortar location puts a spin on a traditional retail environment, featuring a gallery and event space that allows the community to interact with the locale. It's a cooperative concept that can be seen spreading throughout the city.
