Fashion designer Tracy Reese returns to Detroit

You all know I love color. You probably all know of Tracy Reese too. If not, you really need to get out more! And you need to keep reading too. Anyway, when I think of Tracy Reese’s designs I feel a combination of excitement and comfort. I’ve only lived in Michigan for a bit over 8 years now and the Detroit area even less. The city has had such a bad reputation for so long that I wasn’t really looking forward to living so close. But I’m very pleased and a bit surprised to report that the more I go into the city and see and experience it first hand, the better I feel about living nearby. I even feel a sense of pride in how Detroit seems to be making a comeback. I mean there are few cities anywhere in the world with such a long and vibrant history. So I was very happy when Tracy Reese returned to Detroit and opened her first pop-up boutique at local shop; Détroit Is The New Black.

Reese is originally from Detroit, Michigan. In 1982, she moved to New York City to pursue her education at Parsons School of Design. After graduating with an accelerated degree in 1984, Reese worked under Martine Sitbon at the firm Arlequin. She worked at several top fashion design houses, and eventually became head of the Women’s Portfolio for Perry Ellis before launching her own label.

Tracy Reese designs are noted for their femininity and retro-influenced style; the textiles themselves make use of bright colors, elaborate graphic patterns, and a playful use of bohemian touches. Clothing and home fashions by Tracy Reese’s design lines are carried by retailers such as Bloomingdale’s, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Anthropologie, Modcloth, and Nordstrom.

Right after I entered the boutique, I was asked if this trendy college student could take a photo of me. Lol, right away I knew she is a fashion blogger. I love her cute and retro style.

  1. I love Tracy Reese’s designs. She dresses the First Lady so well. So cool that you met her. Love the outfit you wore. So beautiful and feminine.

  2. What a great post. How exciting to meet Tracy, her designs are so beautiful. I love her fur dress with the fur on top and on the bottom – very chic. And, your pink skirt is also very chic. It is one of my favorite colors. Great look!

  3. First I just want to say how insanely jealous I am of you Grace for getting to meet Tracy Reese. Joking! It must have been an honor. I’ve admired her designs for a while now. The quality is worth the price. And her designs are always so elegant. Thanks so much for sharing with us doll!
