Finally recovered from my transatlantic travels, I stopped into the Tracy Reese show to take in her Fall 2009 collection.


I along with a ton of fashion fanatics piled into Bryant Park’s relatively tiny Salon…


There were barely enough seats to sit–Even Andre Leon Talley was left standing!

Finally the show began, and Tracy reinterpreted her signature pretty, uber feminine pieces for fall using a colorful palette of deep reds, purples, and turquoise…


While some of her looks were somewhat predictable–ruffles, lace, and frills–school girl chic also seemed to be the name of the game, with Reese amping up her lacey, brocade regulars with bits of edge witnessed in thigh high socks, skull caps, and librarian-esque readers…


Flashes of luxe elements like fur and sequins also appeared in this collection, making certain items perfect for the girl who isn’t watching her pocketbook…


…perhaps why the front row was peppered with glitterati like Paris and Nicky Hilton, Kim Kardashian, and Solange Knowles.

I caught up with Kim Kardashian afterwards who looked stunning in a Tracy Reese strapless dress…


And also got a quick interview with Solange! Check it out here.

What did you think of the collection?
