NY Fashion Week Fall ’08. Tracy Reese Triumphs

February 3, 2008 • New York Fashion Week Fall '08











I never thought I would say it being a lover of all things black, but what a relief it was to see colors and prints! After seeing many funeral processions and Triscuit-inspired color palettes early in Fashion Week, Reese stepped out of the designer safe zone with her Fall 2008 collection, and dazzled Bryant Park attendees with deep hues of emerald green, fuchsia, Chanel lipstick red, royal eggplant, rusted gold, charmeuse and many others. Looks of multi-colored plaid, mixtures of geometric shapes and floral patterns, and even some leopard prints took this show to the level of which Fashion Week intended.

Color Palette: mint, emerald, purple raisin, deep red, ocean, bronze, gold, silver, heather grey, leopard, slate, chocolate wine, Aztec prints

Textures & Details: multi-colored ribbons, sequins, ruffles, gauze, wool, twill, chiffon, taffeta, velvet

Key Looks: standing collars, trench coats, button detailing, pencil skirts, one-shouldered tops, pleats, faux wrap with button closures, ribbon belts, knee-length hems, high-waisted trouser pants, Obi belt
