2018 Charity Preview Fashion Trends

Glitter, fur, velvet — even dresses made out of car parts. See the hottest looks at Detroit’s Auto Prom.

Metro Detroiters who attended the 2018 North American International Auto Show Charity Preview brought their fashion A-game.

While shorter cocktail dresses were spotted on the auto show floor, the majority of women wore long gowns covered in sparkles or sequins. Like last year, velvet was a popular material, and women toted fur shawls and coats to stay warm. Some got creative and made their own dresses, like Janna Coumoundouros who designed a gown out of interior car materials.

Men started to take more fashion risks with their Auto Prom outfit choices. Many still donned classic black suits and tuxes, but a number of Preview-goers sported patterned jackets, bedazzled bowties and sparkly shoes. Navy was also a popular color for the guys.

The black-tie event at Cobo Center raised over $5 million for eight children’s charities and attracted roughly 13,000 attendees. See photos below:
