Tracy Reese Set To Present Afro-Cuban Inspired Spring 2014 Collection During Fashion Week (PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

After seeing Michelle Obama amaze us in her black-and-red Tracy Reese dress during yesterday's event celebrating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, we can't wait to see what the talented designer has in store for New York Fashion Week.

The Spring 2014 shows are just days away, so we won't have to wait too much longer. But in the meantime, Reese has offered up a sneak peek of her forthcoming collection to give us a taste of what we can expect.

So, what kind of FLOTUS-flattering frocks and dynamic designs will Reese be sending down the runway?

According to a press release:

Sensuality, energy and optimism with an array of bold, spirited styles infused with Afro-Cuban influences to create an aesthetic full of texture and movement.

One glance at Reese's sketch, highlighting key looks from the line, and you can almost feel the vibrancy and energy of Havana. Pinks, blues, greens and ochre will anchor the modern feminine silhouettes. With the addition of bold prints in gingham, florals and tribal geometrics as well as leather and raffia detailing -- Reese promises a collection perfect for "the modern woman who is sexy, assured and contemporary."

Sounds fab!

Check out Reese's Spring 2013 collection sketch below and stay tuned for a full review of the show during Fashion Week.
