Vibrant colors, floral prints, and interesting fabrics are some of what comes to my mind when thinking of Tracy Reese‘s SS12 collection. Reese’s show was held on the 10th anniversary of September 11th, which was nonetheless a solemn day. Tracy showed her support by kindly marking the anniversary at her show by joining forces with Sally Hansen and TRESemme to make donations to charity organizations benefiting 9/11.
Reese’s show was one of my favorites. Her lovely use of pastel blues, corals and blush colors combined with oh-so-bright neons, elegant sequin embellishment, and floral print sensation made for a wonderful feminine spring/summer collection.
No runway show is complete without a celebrity-filled front row. Tika Sumpter, Katie Cassidy, Angela Bassett, Solange Knowels, Selita Ebanks, and Jamie–Lynn Sigler were the stylish celebs who came out to support the designer. I met Katie and Jamie backstage; both were so sweet and looked adorable in their Tracy Reese Frocks.
I attended more than one show on this day, so I didn’t wear one particular designer. I fashioned black and brown plaid shorts from Nordstrom, a black sweater with lace sleeves from a yoga store in Southampton, and I accessorized with an oversized gold necklace (a total paparazzi attraction), my black Balenciaga purse, and my new, and favorite, B by Brian Atwood cheetah pumps.
I had a great time at Reese’s show…check out the video for some in the moment clips!
