Felicity Huffman, celebrity star of the popular TV series "Desperate Housewives," charmed the crowd in a Tracy & Michael 50's inspired dress during her recent appearance at the May 17 ABC "Upfront" party in New York. Huffman and the "Cannes" dress are now appearing in
nearly every recent weekly celebrity publication, fashion magazine and in newspapers such as New York Times, BBC News, Hello! People, Life and Style, Star, Intouch and more. The
pictures of Huffman in her Tracy & Michael dress also appeared online in international press sites such as WireImage, Corbis, Reuters, etc. Felicity is often shown as being at her "best" in these recent "best-dressed" articles while wearing Tracy & Michael.
Huffman spotted the Tracy & Michael dress while shopping at Neiman Marcus of Beverly Hills and consequently wore it during Episode #20 of "Desperate Housewives" when her character, the ever comfortably dressed Lynette, made a return visit to her husband's office in a trim, refreshing, 50's-style full-skirted party dress outshining the ex-girlfriend/secretary her husband had just hired.
Felicity also wore this same dress on her own to the ABC party in New York. Expect to see more Tracy & Michael designs in the show's upcoming season.
Tracy & Michael offers elegant, classic designs carefully crafted with European couture fabrics and a high attention to detail. Their limited-edition dresses are individually
hand-cut and hand-finished with details very rarely seen in today's clothing. They have carried their enthusiasm for "old-school" craftsmanship to a couture level of expectation
that is evident not only in their evening/cocktail line but within their day dress line as well. Made exclusively in Italy and the US, each collection is composed of heirloom-quality fabric and a construction that is meant to be worn for years, not seasons.
With the company's quiet debut in 2001 and their continued undercover presence on the US fashion scene, one can certainly be assured there will be more to come. Their strong emphasis on artisan couture quality and attention to detail has created a polite, but noticeable following.
Tracy & Michael are a design team to watch.
Tracy & Michael collections are available through Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and exclusive boutiques across the United States.
Tracy and Michael spend their time between the Lake District in Northern Italy and the US.
