NY Fashion Week: Tracy Reese

Tracy Reese is one "5th floor" designer (Bergdorf and Saks relegate their contemporary lines, aka cheaper lines, to the 5th floor) whose work never compromises on quality and design. Her Spring 2009 line incorporated floral motifs that took form in tulip skirts (pun intended), chic strapless dresses, and investment-worthy trench coats--all drool worthy for the girly fashionista. My favorite looks:

1. Orange is one color that must be done absolutely right, or you end up looking like a pumpkin that's too frumpy even for a fairy godmother. This strapless one is done just right, with a fresh and delicate Asian floral pattern:

2. This pewter trench is perhaps perfect in design: the large soft rounded collar makes an impact while the subtle metallic color keeps the tested classic fresh:

3. While this statement coat is better suited for a mature woman, it can easily be used in lieu of a cocktail gown:

4. My must-have of the entire collection, this dainty frock is heavenly!

5. For all purple lovers out there, here is yet another cocktail dress that must be yours come spring:
