England was diagnosed with lymphoma in December of 2012 and after receiving an “all clear” from doctors in June 2013, went back to creating. Unfortunately, cancer left its mark and England endured a stroke, which led to his succumbing to a brain aneurism.

England fought bravely for his life and a better quality-of-life for others by partnering with the Barbara Anne Karmanos Cancer Institute to host “Fashion Fights Cancer”, a fashion show at the Detroit Opera House. England’s show raised money for research and patient support programs at Karmanos Cancer Institute. “Fashion Fights Cancer” also introduced his latest designs in the Mark England Collection.

England brought so many people together from young aspiring designers and models who interned at the

multiple retail spaces in downtown Detroit, to the many national and international celebs that counted, trusted and depended on England’s impeccable approach to fashion around the world. England’s legacy will go on forever and the City of Detroit will shine a little brighter because of Mark England’s talents and visions with this great city.
