A promising new frontier is on the horizon in Detroit: a cross between sustainable fashion and racial empowerment, most notably for the youth of the Black community. Spearheading this transformative shift to a hub for eco-conscious apparel production and innovation is ISAIC (Industrial Sewing and Innovation Center), located in Midtown above Carhartt’s flagship store. Co-founder, president, and CEO of ISAIC, Jennifer Guarino, is positioning the nonprofit, which was founded in 2020, to become the driving force behind Detroit’s sustainable manufacturing movement, making way for the city’s identity to shift from automotive manufacturing to a center for sustainable fashion production.
