It seems like Tracy Reese wanted to bring a little summer in to fall with her 2012 collection. Bright red-orange, yellow, violets and teal greens ruled the runways for Ms. Reese this season. Her collection is fun, flirty, and very modern. Filled with bright colors, intricate prints, her collection had great pieces for mixing and matching. There is something for everyone in this collection. You have the gold lame mini-skirts for the party girl, the fur trimmed coat for the sophisticated woman, and over course her printed frocks for the woman who loves all things chic. This collection is so vibrant and it is a great change from what many designers do. Tracy Reese use of color is just impeccable. She knows what colors to pair together to give the look some extra  sass.

Today is the first day of Fashion Week for Fall/Winter 2012. Many fashionistas, celebrities, editors, photographers, bloggers, stylists, designers and a host of others will be hitting the streets of New York. From attending shows at Lincoln Center or locations off-site, to visiting some of the hottest press lounges, mixers, and after parties, this week will definitely be one to remember.

I am looking forward to all of the awesome parties and fabulous street style, and all of the runway shows, but here are 5 designers that I am looking forward to seeing what they have in store for us for the Fall.

1.Tracy Reese– her Spring/Summer 2012 collection included fun prints and bright colors

2. Rachel Roy I love how she transforms masculine silhouettes in a feminine way

3. Kort Momolu She has been one of my favorite designers since Project Runway. I love her fearless use of bold colors

4. L.A.M.B. Gwen Stefani is one of the few singers turned designers who’s clothing has real style. Her line can be edgy, sophisticated, and a little romantic. I can’t wait to see what she brings.

5. Michael Kors Do I really need to say why when it comes to MK? He’s legendary and his designs are timeless.

I had to narrow my choices down to five but here is my list of honorable mentions

Carolina Herrera, Joy Cioci, Victoria Beckham, Lela Rose, and Alexander Wang
