Pot- holes, unpredictable weath- er and time change the three most complained about subjects this season that all seem to throw our energies into one unsettling loop. Seasons mean transi- tion, and as we know change can be hard, and sometimes it's favorable, sometimes it's not, but we all know it is imminent. So how do we navigate this shift, well it's an absolute must in the fashion trade. Much like potholes, weather and time we must steer ourselves in a new direction to keep relevant. This spring we get "Blown away" by the fashion, and in this editorial our mod- el-dancer, Jenna Ode brings the precision of ballet with the elegance of modeling creating a serious blast of style. Photog- rapher Asia Hamilton captures a mood and strength that elevates us to a higher level. Designs from Detroiters Leslie Ann Pilling and vintage retailer Rachel Leggs; New York designer Franklin Rowe International alongside national retailers Neiman Mar- cus & Zara! Afrofuturism (I love that word) is the call for beauty this season; Beauty is a beast, an untamable, unrelenting force of nature that no-one can deny. For Spring 2018 call- ing to life, the mysticism and grandeur of Africa's regal, athletic – that combination of sleek sophistication and proud Afrocen- tricity bringing the power and majesty of "Black Panther" to our pages is a fete we couldn't ignore. As one of the top-gross- ing films of its genre we were enamored of the hair and makeup, so I called upon the exceptional talents of artists Talya Ashford, and Maya Mitchell who created the most incredible hair and makeup alongside our beautiful model Shieda Moore that made the crew scream "Wakanda Forever." Trending is a leading phrase in menswear for spring and trend we did! Everything from Hawaiian prints to Easter egg shades in suits, plush glittery fabrics lifted from the ladies. Short-shorts and outerwear - worn inside. Skirts instead of pants, jumpers in all textures and it's all coming to a store near you so beware! Haute's Entertainment Editor Olivia Ewing shares her fascinating conversation with two of Detroit's most talented and prized couples Stephanie and Tyrone Dickey and their twenty-seven-year journey of love and creativity, now with a new creative space and coffee bar, comic books and action figures we can't wait for our readers to experience this fantastic couple and the exceptional work they are doing. For this Spring 18, we packed this issue with as much fashion as we could hold, and hopefully, you will enjoy the journey as much as we did creating it!
