Founder & CEO Détroit is the New Black

Originally from Seattle, WA, Roslyn moved to Detroit in 2013 after stints in Washington D.C., New York and Singapore. She spent the early part of her career as a buyer for Saks Fifth Avenue and was recruited by EU e-commerce giant Rocket Internet GMBH to head up the buying operations at their Southeast Asia based fashion e-commerce start-up.
