FASHIONWEEK Fall 2007: A Backstage Video Interview with Tracy Reese. FASHIONTRIBES FASHION BLOG & VIDEOBLOG

In her backstage interview with Reese, Kim Weling learned that her inspiration for this season came from the home decor arena. "I was inspired by a room that was beautifully done with a deliberate use of strong color," says Reese. "It was against glossy black, which I thought was really rich and beautiful. It was very inspirational in selecting the fabrics & the colors in this collection."

Reese also shares some tips and advice for new designers just entering the business!
