Detroit-born designer Tracy Reese brought her feminine flair to the runways Sunday. Reese, whose well-heeled clients include First Lady Michelle Obama, told Glamour her inspiration for spring 2014 collection came from “the energy and spirit of Afro-Cuban cultures, and you can see this influence translated within the bold prints and unique textures used throughout the collection."
Reese’s spring 2014 collection is definitely lady-like but punctuated with energetic colors, a few sporty touches, and, yes, crop tops. Voluminous midi skirts and dresses were done in tropical orange, black-and-white, and blue prints. Mixing prints as well as textures gave many looks intricate details that stood out on the runway during her New York Fashion week event. After a ton of bold, bright color, the show ended on a romantic note in the form of six all-white looks with sweet eyelet lace and ruffles.
