To raise money for Detroit Garment Group's programming, we are offering a fun way to participate as a donor at Spark, DGG's inaugural fundraiser.


The perfect DGG sponsorship for small businesses & individual donors


Get a full-color slide, promoting your business, favorite cause or special someone that will continuously loop for three hours on multiple monitors at Spark – Detroit Garment Group’s inaugural fundraiser, taking place from 7-10 p.m., Thursday, October 13, 2016 at One Woodward in Detroit. For a $400 Loop sponsorship, your slide will run at both Spark & FashionSpeak – DGG’s annual fashion conference that focuses on the business of fashion, taking place the same day from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

Sponsors can provide their own Powerpoint slide (16:9 resolution for best appearance), or you can supply your logo and copy and we’ll put a slide together for you.

If you are interested in a higher-level sponsorship, including presenting sponsor of Spark, contact Karen Buscemi:


Detroit Garment Group was started as a response to the need for business education for Michigan's fashion community. The first program we created (in 2013) to address this need is FashionSpeak, a one-day conference of networking and education that focuses on the business of fashion. The second program (in 2014) is the Industrial Sewing Certificate Program at Henry Ford College, targeting the unemployed and underemployed to provide a skilled trade that pays a living wage. (Funding is available to those who qualify via Michigan Works.) The DGG Fashion incubator, the third program, launched at TechTown in Detroit (in 2015), providing the designers-in-residence workspace, access to industrial sewing machines and high-end software/technology, plus business mentorship and monthly business-education workshops. Finally, DGG is in process of creating Michigan’s first garment district. Currently, we are working on preparing Phase 1 for development. Stay tuned for updates!
