Detroit Architecture Website

Detroit-ish.com is the most comprehensive site dedicated to exploring and documenting Detroit and its buildings. The photos on this website represent a culmination of 16 years of entering and photographing these structures. Despite sometimes lamenting a lost building, a loss of history, we enjoy documenting this change. We hope that in the coming years as city planners, investors and speculators make way for ‘progress’ … Detroit can hold on to its history.

Founder of Fashion Style Detroit

Fashion Style Detroit was founded in 2007 by Native Detroiter Jamila as way of showcasing her love for all things fashion. She decided to create a blog dedicated to fashion the way she sees it. “I believe everyone has a story, so why not tell it through fashion”. Jamila wants to show people that there is more than one way of dressing. Following a trend doesn’t make you a great dresser, it’s the way you put the clothes together that makes your style personal.
