Detroit native, Evann Webb combined her love for writing and
fashion and pursued her dreams in her hometown. After graduating from
Renaissance High School, Evann went on to further her education at Michigan
“I knew that MSU had one of the best journalism programs out
there. I was always interested in fashion and it was one of the few major
universities in the state that offered a fashion program. It was the best of
Webb explored fashion opportunities in New York City with a
MSU sponsored program but for her, Detroit is where her heart lies. After
interning for several companies in Michigan, including Title Source, Ambassador
Magazine, and Macys, Evann got the validation she needed as a journalist when
her work got published.
When asked why she decided to stay in her hometown, she
said, “I decided to stay in Detroit, because I wanted to show other people that
were interested in fashion and the arts that you can make a name for yourself
anywhere as long as you put in the work. There are very interesting things
going on in the city, and I wanted to be a part of the positive change.”
After graduating in December 2015 and applying for more than
100 jobs in the communication field, Evann started her career in the retail industry.
With her entrepreneurial spirit, Evann revamped her Tumblr blog, “What the Heck
are You Wearing” into a new and trendy publication during her early post-grad
journey. Following four and half years of college, Webb realized that she had
more to say about fashion and lifestyle, thus the birth of “Damsel in Detroit.”
Following the relaunching of her blog, Evann landed in her
current position as the new Digital and Social media Associate for the City of
Detroit, finally landing a career in her industry.
“After graduating, I worked in a lot of retail jobs, but I
wasn’t being challenged enough. I have a friend that also does social media for
the city and she knew my editorial and social media background and encouraged
me to apply for the position. After going through the application and interview
process, I was offered the job!”
Evann says that her favorite part of her job is that it
causes her to step a bit out of her comfort zone. “The majority of the writing
I’ve done has been fashion and lifestyle based, but I’m writing about politics
and public affairs. I think the change in pace is going to help me to become a
stronger writer overall. Plus I’m pushing out information that people in the
community need to know.”
Congrats Evann on a well-deserved position!
In the next five years, Webb says that she hopes to still be
working in the city and to also own her own fashion publication. “I like to
She encourages young people to figure out what you’re
passionate about and go from there.
“Do your research, meet people, start a portfolio and don’t
let anyone discourage you. I know it’s easier said than done but when you
really put your mind to it, you can do whatever you want to do.”
