New York Fashion Week has officially launched and African American designers like Tracy Reese are already making a splash. Â The Detroit native got lots of press during the Democratic National Convention when Michelle Obama gave her rousing speech while wearing a pink Â dress custom made by Reese. Â 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. Â What’s your favorite piece?
