Tracy Reese is true American fashion success story. Born in Detroit, she moved to NYC when she was 18 to pursue her education at Parsons The New School for Design. After graduating she worked at several top fashion houses and eventually became the head of Woman's Portfolio at Perry Ellis, before starting her own label in 1998. Tracey has become know for her femininity and retro style influences as well as for her use of bright colors, elaborate graphic prints, and her playful uses of bohemian touches. We love her because she designs pieces that are not just special but wearable, and that is something every mom can appreciate.
