African-American designer Tracy Reese debuted her Spring/Summer 2016 ready-to-wear collection at Art Beam gallery on Sunday, September 13.
The collection was filled with fluorescent, retro cut pieces. Compared to her Spring 2014 collection, the designer did not stop herself from letting loose with the structure of her pieces for 2016. The 2016 collection is so fun, dramatic and gives me 70s disco on so many levels. I wish I was around to play dress up.
Everything from the make-up to the shiny patent leather boots, the collection has already impacted and inspired my spring wardrobe. I love the funky patterns and bizarre shoulders featured in the collection. My closet is already filled will bell bottomed pants and chiffon tops, which does not compare to the silk seen on this runway.
Here are my favorite looks:
