Tracy Reese, designer
Three words that describe your Fall '12 collection: Vibrant, baroque, and bold.
What's your hidden talent? I love to paint — on canvas or even furniture. I even have a little studio set-up in my house upstate.
What are your three fashion essentials? Piles of necklaces, comfortable yet stylish shoes, and a go-to dress you feel confident in.
What's your favorite Winter comfort food? Soup. I have soup almost every day for lunch.
How are you planning to de-stress and relax after NYFW? After the chaos, I spend the rest of the day with my father and siblings who come to support me every season. I try to get a nap in before we go to a lovely dinner.
