In the Limelight: Tracy Reese

Less than 48 hours before the first stiletto hit the runway this Fashion Week in New York, a little thing happened more than 500 miles south: First Lady Michelle Obama donned one of womenswear designer Tracy Reese's lacy frocks while delivering her speech at the Democratic National Convention. As if having a prime weekend time slot for her 2012 NYFW show wasn't enough, now Reese's label is ramping up production to meet demand. Take a bow, Tracy: 2012 is your year.
