Fashion News Roundup: Vogue UK EIC Pens A Novel, Tracy Reese Talks Trayvon Martin Case, and Fashion People's Tats

Tracy Reese Weighs in on the Trayvon Martin Case: Like most of the country, the designer is outraged at the shooting of the innocent, unarmed teenage boy. She talked to Huffington Post's Black Voices about the matter, articulating her views on the troubling assumption in our society that People of Color are always up to no good:" The whole thing is just so sad, and the excuses are so lame... White people wear hoodies too," she said. "It's so sad that people want to be in fear of you just because you're a young man of color." Couldn't have said it better, Ms. Reese. {Huffington Post} Vogue UK Editor-in-Chief Alexandra Shulman Releases Her First Novel: It seems every writer, journalist, or editor has a secret dream of publishing a novel, and we're happy to see that Alexandra Shulman is one of the few who have made it a reality. Can We Still be Friends, is the story of three friends fresh from college, trying to figure out post grad life in Eighties London. Expect the novel in stores April 19. {Vogue UK} Fashion People Show off Their Tats: Refinery 29 rounded up a group of fashion notables (including jewelry designer Pamela Love and our very own Hayley Phelan) tell us the stories behind their ink. {Refinery 29}
