In Northwest Detroit along Livernois Ave, you'll discover an area known as the 'Avenue of Fashion'. A stones throw away from historic neighborhoods such as the University District, Green Acres, Sherwood Forest and Palmer woods, this area is a destination for both shopping and good eats.
True to its name, the Avenue of Fashion features plenty of clothing retailers such as Flagship Boutique/District 81 Clothing, owned by Detroiter Ty Haygood; SimplyCasual Clothing and Lifted Boutique. The area is also home to some of Detroit's newest food destinations such as Kuzzo's Chicken & Waffles, where former NFL player Ron Bartell offers southern style cuisine in a casual dining atmosphere; and April Anderson’s Good Cakes and Bakes, an organic bakery business modeled as an example of new and innovative growth in the Detroit at the CGI America Conference early last year.
Thanks to organizations like Motor City Match, empty storefronts are filling up with new tenants ready to serve as staples in their community. Motor City Brewing Works is set to open a second location soon on the avenue, and will be joined by newcomer Slyde.
DXF will be holding a free walking tour through the neighborhood on Saturday, December 3rd from 2-4pm. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the Avenue of Fashion with the help of one of our DXF Ambassadors, and experience some of what make's this neighborhood so great on Small Business Saturday!
