Tracy Reese Spring 2009
Where & When: Sunday, September 7th at noon, the Promenade, Bryant Park
Runway Recap: When it comes to pretty, no one does it better than Tracy Reese. She set the tone with delicate strands of lights dangling from the ceiling and dreamy music (Keren Ann, Coldplay), then started her garden party with rosettes, winding vine-like embroidery, and impressionistic floral prints that would bring a tear to Monet's eye. Less obvious--but equally beautiful--interpretations of the theme included tulip skirts with draped, petal-like panels and peplum jackets that flared over the hips like blossoms. It all made me wish that we could skip fall and winter and just go straight to spring. The audience agreed--they gave Reese a standing ovation.
Standout Look: The structured shape of this bateau-neck sleeveless dress perfectly balances the romantic, pointillist print. Can you think of a more perfect frock for a summer wedding?
Bonus Points: With a number of Asian and black models, this was one of the most diverse runways I've seen. Also, Brandy was in the front row!
