Haute in the Heartland author Gabrielle Poshadlo learned to walk in her mom's clothing design studio in suburban Detroit, navigating a floor strewn with pins and fabric scraps. "I guess Midwestern fashion is in my blood," she said. "I think that's similar to the New York variety only friendlier and with a lower heel." That background woven tightly with her formal journalism training has brought you Haute in the Heartland; the musings of a Midwestern girl who really really really likes clothes. H in the H began as an authority on the fashion scene in Indianapolis, but then Poshadlo got a job working in PR at the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. So let's talk about fashion in Detroit, and let's talk about fashion in Indianapolis. Heck, let's talk about fashion in general. Gabrielle, well, she'll talk about herself a lot too, because that's what bloggers do.
