One of our favorite designers ev-er here at I Heart Heels is none other than the classically chic Tracy Reese. Her designs are always so spot-on, we always anticipate her collection season after season. With the upcoming NY Fashion Week at Lincoln Center in September, Tracy is SUPER-busy (she dresses the First Lady for crying out loud!) working on her new Spring/Summer 2011 collection. But, we were lucky enough (and she was nice enough!) to squeeze in her answers to our top burning questions!
IHH: Which celebrities have you dressed most recently?
TR: I am so flattered because the First Lady herself has worn our dresses a bunch recently! Mrs. Obama wore the Shirred Frock in Indigo Placement Floral twice, and the Draped Frock in Black Shadow Dots just the other day when she returned home to the White House after a family vacation. She always looks so beautiful and I love that her own style shines through in whatever she wears. She wears clothing beautifully and I am very appreciative of the opportunity to dress her. I also think it means a lot to women across the country to see the First Lady in attainable designs, and I love being a part of that! I’d love to see Mrs. Obama continue to wear my designs.
IHH: Is there anything new launching within your brand this year – or new announcements?
TR: For Fall 2010, I will continue to expand my plenty by Tracy Reese brand by introducing a footwear collection. Affordable and chic!
IHH: Will you show at Lincoln Center in September – we’re dying to know!!
TR: Yes! While it is hard to say goodbye to Bryant Park, I’m really looking forward to the future at Lincoln Center and showing my collection in a distinguished setting immersed in culture, history and beauty.
