Tracy Belben, creator and designer of T*Racy, is a trained architectural designer with a passion for making a statement. While attending Wentworth Institute of Technology’s Architecture Program in Boston, MA, Tracy experimented with conceptual sculptures relating to a project’s location and function; translating all into built form that makes a statement within a surrounding landscape. To Tracy, designs that are almost “wrong”, question a social or site-specific issue, or just too literal are a great success- since it generates lively discussion and interest. Pieces in the line T*Racy are designed with the same philosophy; only instead of a physical landscape, she is designing for the human form.
Coming with absolutely no fashion design background or education in the related field, I grew interest in fashion design through different inspirations. My fashion design skills started out as a hobby and mostly self-taught. The more I create designs, the more I felt like fashion design is my way of expressing who I am. I get inspirations from various things such as Japanese art, music, people, and traveling. As of now, I am still pursing to strive for unique, exotic creations, and wish to take my design skills to the next level.
