    John Varvatos on Detroit: 'I want to bring busloads of people there to show what's going on'

    [​IMG]

    DETROIT, MI -- Fashion designer John Varvatos appears to be betting big on downtown Detroit.

    Varvatos, the stylist for celebrities like Howard Stern and several musicians, explained Wednesday morning on CNBC's "Squawk Box" the energy of the Motor City inspires him to open a store in the central business district in spring 2015.

    "It's an exciting opportunity," Varvatos said of opening a downtown Detroit store. "Just the buzz when you're back there, there's just so much happening.

    "I don't know; I want to bring busloads of people there to show what's going on.".....................

    He's trying to get the muggers some more revenue. How can you be upset about that?

    He's got a buzz in his trousers from that pocket rocket that Hmus gave him in trade for that sweet red scarf.

    Is this good, bad, or laughable?

    Guarantee you hes getting all kinds of incentives and tax breaks to open a store there. Poverty and Varvatos because thugs need hundred dolla chucks and scarfs.

    I believe in Detroit.

    Just like I believe in Santa Claus, Jesus and the Easter Bunny.

    I bet it'll be his only store with rolling security gates outside the windows and door.

    Awhile back I watch a show about the Quicken Loans guy and Detroit.
    Apparently he has armed security guarding his buildings......in the middle of that shit-hole.

    Varvatos is now identified as Howard's stylist? Then what's this guy's job?

    Nemo, from what I heard the reggie was from Bel Air maryland. Thats the same county the wife an I live in now.
    Crazy thing is that its a rather exclusive area, for the most part. Its where the hard working people that grew up in Baltimore city went to escape all the ghetto violence.

    I fucking new it....once they started bringing the mass transit closer and closer to Bel Air now all the apes will follow. Im getting tired of trying to move away from them!

    Great news for anyone with money left in Detroit. Now they can spend lots of money to dress like the homeless bums they see sleeping on the corner.

    It isn't far fetched. Fact is, in spite of the bankruptcy, Detroit's downtown is on the rise. Billionaires like Dan Gilbert are buying up buildings and actively working them rather than sitting on them. Rents are rising and new eateries are popping up. What used to look like a ghost town even during the week days has now come alive. The night life is on an upswing as well.

    That said, what's so great about this Varvatos guy? I don't understand how he's suddenly the it designer.
