Fashion Week: Tracy Reese
Romanticism and Edwardian influences dominated Tracy Reese's Spring 2008 show, with her signature girly pieces evoking a more feminine aura this season.
She opened her show with models waltzing down the runway in wide-brim hats and beige tailored menswear that channeled the Jazz Age. Lady-like shifts and evening separates appeared in dreamy raspberry sequins, followed by long stripe gowns that are cut on a bias and close to the body.
Reese's signature feminine touch is prevalent throughout collection. She does not disappoint, for her excellent use in patterned fabric, and her unique tailoring (look at those high-waisted pants!) evoke a Great Gatsby influence that surely F. Scott Fitzgerald would approve. It is another collection that will go well with retailers and consumers alike.
