Backstage at New York Fashion Week FW12: Style at Tracy Reese

For Fall/Winter 2012 Tracy Reese’s collection oozed a natural street-inspired style with strong shoulders, bold tones and a variety of textures, embellishments and patterns.

A sponsor of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, TRESemmé was on hand with stylist Jeanie Syfu who created a textured bed-head look meant to compliment and mimic the style of the clothing.

“The hair is inspired by the mood of the collection – an accessible look that reflects a natural street style.

The clothes are meant to be worn by normal people and when the complete look comes together, it sends a head-to-toe message.”

To be quite honest, the entire show had me singing Paula Fernandes’ “Canções do vento Sul.”

… and I adore Fernandes, so I was a very happy girl during Miele’s entire runway presentation.

The final product was to vie for!
