Designer Rachel Roy is one of the highlights of shopping at Macys.com. The designer, of Dutch and Indian descent, creates beautiful, modern dresses, jumpsuits and tops that are part of her diffusion line available at Macy’s since 2009. Roy has also fought hard for her success. At age 14, her father, a hardworking janitor, left her at the mall until she found a job—which she did, folding T-shirts at an aquarium.* Roy later found her way to Contempo Casuals, then Roca Wear and eventually, her own line, which launched in 2004. She is famously known for turning a T-shirt into an edgy prom dress for Teen Vogue.** Though her designs can’t be found in Tucson Macy’s stores (suppress eyeroll here..), you can find them online, as well as, her own website RachelRoy.com.Embed from Getty Images
