What's your company name? Tracy Diamond Styling

How do you define your signature style?
I would describe my signature style as urban street style meets Jackie O with a vintage boho influence. Growing up in Toronto, I always admired the California hippie-chic bell-bottom look, but also loved the New York fashion scene à la 50s sophistication. My aunts, who lived in New York City, heavily influenced my sense of style development. In their wardrobe: the famed DVF dresses, the Jackie O dress coat evening ensembles, the legendary Gucci bags, as well as the killer high-waisted Gloria Vanderbilt jeans. Hence, my favorite is to mash up styles, patterns, and eras. I draw from South American textiles, Asian embroidered silks, and European folk dress. Did I forget to mention I love a vintage find too? I don't ever go with what is trending. I create my own trend. One could say I am a mixmaster of styles, fashion, and culture. The world is my closet, and I create my everyday style from it. 

What's your favorite style tip?
Basic essentials are a must in building a wardrobe, while proper lingerie pieces are key in styling.

Who are your ACC show artist picks?

  • Sharon Rosenthal: The leaf necklace – what a statement piece. It is elegant, timeless, and powerful.
  • Mira Blackman: The indigo-dyed mud-cloth jacket – how gorgeous is this garment? I am addicted to an African mud-cloth garment; it just screams originality.
  • Mau Schoettle: Now this is my jam: urban street style, recycled, crafted, wearable-art jacket. I say it is a classic.
  • Ian James: This bag has a futurist look and makes a statement: "I am confident, organized, and ready."
