Tracy Reese designs have been in stores most of my life. They are/were feminine, pretty, my favorite is her flattering draping. (My Thredup cart is full of her designs.) After learning about her own production process and not being able to find any transparency anywhere she reaccessed. This year she went back to her native Detriot and launched her sustainable collection Hope for Flowers by Tracy Reese. It’s ethically and sustainably sourced and produced in Detroit. Part of the collection is made in Flint, Michigan by women who are reentering the workforce. For me, it’s really inspiring to see names that I owned before I started my sustainable fashion journey really looking at everything going on and making concrete changes and setting examples.
