A New York City traffic light suspended above the Tracy Reese runway gave showgoers a literal green light to embrace the Big Apple for 2013. Reese, who famously outfitted Mrs. Obama for the Democratic National Convention, looked toward the "sexy, strong, eccentric, and individual" girls from America's fashion capital (and her hometown) this season. Colors were bright, animal prints were strong, and fuzzy hats were a-plenty. But the best accessory to come down the runway: a live (presumably de-clawed) feline in partnership with Purina ONE to promote leash-walking. See it all after the jump.
