SHINOLA: "MAKERS MONDAY"
"In the spirit of celebrating local makers, we sat down with Detroit local, Deirdre Skiles, founder of Detroit Rose Candle Co., to discuss being a maker in Detroit, the meaning of success and her creative process. Detroit Rose Candle Co. specializes in the creation of hand-poured, all-natural candles made with natural vegan-soy wax and premium fragrance oils."
NEW YORK TIMES: "Out of Detroit, Designs and Pride"
"Simply being made in Detroit did not qualify an object for admission, Ms. Varian emphasized; the goods also had to meet her rigorous style standards. “Everything in the show is something I’d buy for the store,” she said."
