Styelist asked the manager of Tracy Reese's Meatpacking flagship about the strangest request she's ever received. The answer: "We have customers who come in asking to speak to Tracy and have her design something in two days. People sometimes don't understand what a designer does and how it works. They'll come in and say 'Can you call Tracy, and can she come in and make me something?'" [Stylelist]
