(NEW YORK) While much of Fashion Week has tightened the reigns and piled on the somber, Tracy Reese's collection showed no sign of such gloomy tidings. Despite less than happy circumstances (the designer's mother passed away earlier this week), her collection showcased an optimistic and ebullient outlook. Bright patterns, luxurious stoles and a show-stopping gold lame' suit danced down the runway. Proof positive that good clothing transcends age? The front row was filled with a mixture of bright young things like Kelly Pickler, Solange Knowles, the Hilton sisters, and older and equally chic women like Aisha Cole.
