New York Fashion Week has officially launched and African American designers like Tracy Reese are already making a splash.  The Detroit native got lots of press during the Democratic National Convention when Michelle Obama gave her rousing speech while wearing a pink  dress custom made by Reese.  The dress will soon be available to the masses.

While that piece is in production, Reese debuted her Fall 2012 collection at New York Fashion Week and The Root has a slideshow of all the critically acclaimed designs filled with shimmer, texture and color.  What’s your favorite piece?
