A Night of Fashion and Substance!

The fashion brigade of Detroit was welcomed into The Whitney last Thursday for William Malcolm’s ‘Man of Style’ gala. In attendance were friends, family, community supporters and press who enjoyed eight individual art exhibits set up throughout the mansion, as well as a multi-media gaming room. There was also a private viewing of the spring/summer collections of celebrity designer Katerina Bocci and William Malcolm, himself.

The night’s sole honoree was the much anticipated winner of the William Malcolm’s ‘Man of Style’ contest. The contest focused on the young men of Michigan and their attributes of style, sophistication and humanitarianism. Malcolm sought to highlight these young men and honor their attributes with a $25,000 prize package for the winner.

Demario S. Tucker was announced as ‘The Man of Style’ at the close of the evening after a long deliberation by the high profile judges, including Bud Liebler , owner of The Whitney. Tucker received a prize package that includes an all inclusive trip for two to Hawaii, a feature in Ambassador Magazine, a wardrobe that will be designed by William Malcolm, a furniture package from IKEA furniture, autographed sports memorabilia from Curtis Granderson of the Detroit Tigers, custom Ford apparel provided by the Fairlane Ford Dealership of Dearborn, a luxury watch provided by Tappers fine Jewelry, a two day photo shoot by world renowned photographer Shawn Lee of Shawn Lee Studios, several custom art pieces that were commissioned by William Malcolm for the winner from local and national artists as well as several other stylishly sophisticated gifts – Can you say WOW!

New Billboards!!

We have had many “firsts” here at The Whitney: first kisses, first dates, first anniversaries, “First Fridays”, first ghostly encounters, AND first advertising via BILLBOARD!!! That’s right, The Whitney has not one, but TWO new billboards that may have caught your eye while driving along Woodward Ave. One of the billboards is located on the corner of Canfield and Woodward just next door to us (it can be seen from the third floor of the restaurant) and the other is right down the street. So while you’re driving, walking, catching the bus or just hanging out on Woodward, turn your eyes to the sky and CHECK THE OUT! Who knows, it might just get you in the mood to stop by for a bite to eat or a little something to drink.
