Tracy Reese And Kaelen Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Inspiration
Architecture and sculpture were the sparks for these two creative designers.
Taylor Swift is just one of many celebrities who adore Tracy Reese’s designs. Tracy has been busily working on her Fall 2011 fashion show that will be shown during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week on Valentine’s Day.
Her inspiration for the coming season is, “Fall 2011 unfolds in rich hues, sculptural shapes and interesting textural combinations. Each look has some point of brilliance – a shot of metallic, antique copper and silver, or a vibrant pop of raspberry, aqua or amber – breathing new life into muted neutral tones of toffee, black, brown and gray. Tactile pairings and more voluminous silhouettes enhance 3-dimensionality; a scarf-cape is paired with a pleated maxi skirt in rich curry, with a jade clutch for a color burst. Graphic and floral prints remain strong for the season, adding a spark of individuality to fall ensembles.”
Kaelen Farncombe is the up and coming designer behind the line Kaelen. For Fall 2011, she states “the inspiration came from a western, Victorian realm, the feel of wood-walled saloons. I wanted it to feel like pieces had been passed down through generations of a family, re-worked and made modern.”
