Stand By Your Brand: Tracy Reese!

Tracy Reese's two lines Frock! and Plenty are no stranger to Horseshoe! We are so honored to grace our racks with her gorgeous and classic designs. 
With an innate desire to create beautiful things, Detroit native Tracy Reese headed for Manhattan in 1982 to attend Parsons School of Design where she received an accelerated degree in 1984. Upon graduation, Reese apprenticed under designer Martine Sitbon while working for the small contemporary firm, Arlequin.  Reese worked at some of the industry’s top fashion houses, including Perry Ellis where she was the design director for Women’s Portfolio.
In Spring 1998, Reese launched her eponymous collection to rave reviews. Perfect for the modern woman, Reese’s debut showcased ultra-feminine pieces layered with intelligent nostalgia, charm and luxury; a distinctive look that the designer has since become known for. 
The designer’s 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, Plenty by Tracy Reese comprises pieces that unite myth and modernity with a rock-and-roll twist.  The collection is both eclectic and adventurous, featuring Reese’s signature detailing.

Not only are Tracy's dress designs to die for, so are her coats! Keep warm this Fall/Winter with the Plenty Fringed Poncho,  $298 or the Plenty Belted Coat, $348.
