It's hard to believe that New York Fashion Week will be taking place in just a few short weeks, and one of my favorite designers who will be showing is Tracy Reese. And I know she's one of your favorite designers, too, from her affordable Plenty by Tracy Reese line (sold at stores like Anthropologie) to her recent collab with Target (her plates and sequin top are the two items I bought for myself, best of the bunch!)
Here, the designer shares her inspiration for her upcoming Fall 2013 collection:
"Tracy Reese fall 2013 collection is very much inspired by New York with all its harshness and beauty. Reese combines a variety of rich textures and both feral and romantic patterns for a collection of sexy silhouettes with an emphasis on hourglass dresses, longer slim skirts, sweater tunics and bold, meaty jackets and coats.
Black in all of its magnificence, from deep velvety darkness to textured patent refraction, anchors a palette highlighted by scarlet, cerise, teal, aubergine, tan and lychee. With a strong dress presence in this season's collection, a classic and flattering Floral Frock in Scarlet is embellished with delicate beading and paired with a flat closed-toe bootie to create a timeless and modern, yet easy-to-wear look."
