For six years, Roslyn Karamoko worked as a buyer at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York and then in southeast Asia heading up the buying team for e-commerce company Rocket Internet GMBH. The Seattle-native moved to Detroit, Michigan, in 2013 and later that year, launched her label of streetwear called Détroit Is the New Black. In 2016, Karamoko opened her first brick-and-mortar shop and in 2019, moved locations to a bigger, contemporary space where she now houses both her own line of ready-to-wear and beauty and a rotating roster of independently-owned businesses from Detroit and beyond. Détroit Is the New Black is a hybrid art gallery, store, and incubator space, one which features and supports labels on the rise from around the world. —B.B.
