Who We've Spotted At ... Tracy Reese F/W 07-08 Runway Show, New York

Though the entire New York city were still shrouded in snow, that did not keep the flashy Manhattan socialites, celebrities and fashion devotees away from participating in new York Fashion Week last month to preview the upcoming Fall/Winter collection.

How redundant fashion can be when most
designers are going for the same metallic, leggings and belt things. However, at Tracy Reese's Bryant Park show, there's a bit of change in the air.

Pintuck dress with short puffed sleeves, knee-length hemline and larger-than-life box-pleated hem, Russian-inspired straight-collared belted blouse with ruffled hem and bishop sleeves, and A-line dresses in several bright and warm colors were some of the Fall offering from this New York-based designer.

Well, while we feast our eyes on the creations, we managed to meet some of the Manhattan elites and celebrities who attended the show as a way to show their endless support to the designer. Lets check 'em out!

The Soul queen from Hell's Kitchen Alicia Keys gave her best pose beside the designer herself, Miss Tracy Reese for the camera. We definitely give our approval nod to her hairdo.

Another soul sista and the former Destiny's Child Kelly Rowland in her fur. Her new album is scheduled to be in stores this year. Can't wait for another hit single after "Dilemma" and "Stole".

The inevitable Tim Gunn from Project Runway. Look how happy he was at the show, compared to his stern and no smile-policy face that he used to prod in TV. A lighter side of him :D

Who is she? Kimora Lee-Simmons? No, she's Mally Roncal, Tracy's runway show makeup artist. The 34-years old Filipina has been working with some of the world's famous faces and she also is the makeup expert for Women's Health magazine.

Tracy Reese's Fall/Winter collection will be in stores by August while her latest Spring/Summer 2007 collection is in the stores now. In Malaysia, Tracy Reese collection is available at Maizen Maison.
