Get to Know: Tracy Reese

So for my first Get to Know posting I figured that I would feature the designer of my new favorite shirt.  I was able to order a Tracy Reese top, called the damson lace blouse, from an older Anthropologie catalog a couple of weeks ago (see picture here).  The designer’s name is Tracy Reese.  Tracy Reese received an accelerated degree in 1984 from Parsons School of Design in New York.  After graduating Parsons, the Detroit native worked under designer Marine Sitbon while working for the small contemporary firm, Arlequin.  

In Spring 1998, Reese launched her first collection, “Tracy Reese,” to rave reviews.  The designers’ second line, plenty by Tracy Reese was introduced later that same year.  A bohemian, “ethnic-inspired collection that is of-the moment, yet never trendy.”  The collection is eclectic, modern and adventurous.  Her collections reveal timeless wearable looks that include bright colors, bold prints and sophisticated patterns.

Tracy Reese, plenty and her other brands are sold nationwide in top department stores and specialty boutiques (like Anthropologie) as well as retailers throughout Europe and Asia.   Hopefully, we’ll continue to see more of Tracy Reese’s collection at Anthropologie and I hope to acquire more pieces from this amazing designer!

Here are a few of my favorite Tracy Reese items currently at Anthropologie stores or online:
