Tracy Reese was born in Detroit and grew up sewing her own clothes alongside her mother. When Reese was in her late teens, she moved to New York City to attend Parsons School of Design. After graduating in 1984, Reese began work at the firm Arlequin under Martine Sitbon, then went on to work at several design houses before launching her own line in 1998. She launched her more affordable lines, Plenty and Frock! in 2000 and 2006, respectively.
Tracy Reese’s designs are known for their bold geometric patterns, femininity, and retro style combined with a modern flair. She often uses bright colors and is an expert in fabrics.
