Designer and CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winner Billy Reid is expanding his retail franchise to Georgetown. The Alabama and Louisiana native currently has 5 operating stores in the South and one in New York. His latest showroom will offer selections for men and women, along with accessories. The establisment will reflect the Southern roots of the designer, and incorporate re-claimed materials from the South, along with antiques. There are also plans to have the retail space hold live performances and evening affairs, which is a signature in all of Reid’s establishments. The store is scheduled to open in May.
