New York Fashion Week

February 12, 2013 | By Booth Moore
NEW YORK -- Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, named 2012's top women's wear designers by the prestigious Council of Fashion Designers of America, presented their fall 2013 collection Thursday morning in the sumptuous rooms of a $48-million Gilded Age town house on New York's Upper East Side, complete with twinkling chandeliers, faded Oriental rugs and mismatched chairs. The designer sisters were dressed like haute ragamuffins in furs and pointy toed shoes, their long hair fashionably mussed up. They found the space, rented for the occasion, with the help of a real estate agent, they said.

NEW YORK -- Tracy Reese, still on a high after Michelle Obama wore the designer's fuchsia and coral jacquard dress when she gave her speech at the Democratic National Convention last week, showed her spring-summer 2013 collection to a packed house Sunday. The dress was such a big hit that Reese's website crashed the night of the speech, and her office has been fielding calls from women wanting to pre-order the exact style the first lady wore. "We're about to get very busy," Reese said backstage Sunday, explaining that she is rushing the style into production.
