With an aesthetic that is classic, chic and decidedly modern, fashion designer Billy Reid is redefining American luxury. Traditional and refined, but never stuffy, his clothes appeal to men and women who understand quality and have a deep appreciation for the careful craftsmanship that has become the hallmark of Billy’s career.
Billy’s first foray into the world of designer fashion came in 1998, with the launch of William Reid. The brand went on hiatus in 2001, but not before winning Billy the esteemed Perry Ellis Award for Best New Menswear Designer, given by the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA). By spring 2004, he was back, designing menswear under the name Billy Reid.
The new company aimed to grow the Billy Reid fashion business in an organic way, building on Billy’s personal aesthetic and authentic lifestyle, including his Southern upbringing (Billy was born in Amite, LA, where he learned about clothes from his mother, who ran a dress store out of their home) and a deep appreciation for heritage, family and community. The company introduced women’s clothing in 2008 and began to build a well-appointed stable of namesake stores, each filled with artfully chosen antiques and Reid family heirlooms.
Stylish, tailored and imminently wearable, Billy’s designs have garnered him a legion of devoted fans and customers who love the ease and authenticity of his clothes. They’re not the only ones to take notice: Since re-launching his namesake business, his work has been widely recognized by some of the most influential names in the fashion industry.
In February of 2010, GQ joined the CFDA in honoring him with the award for Best New Menswear Designer in America. The following November, Billy received the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund award, making him the first designer ever to win both awards in the same year. The honors continued to roll in: In June of 2012, Billy was named the recipient of the CFDA’s prestigious Menswear Designer of the Year award.
Today, Billy splits time between New York City, where he has a popular shop on Bond Street, and his flagship shop and design studio in Florence, AL, where the company is a vital part of the four-city area known as The Shoals.
There are seven additional Billy Reid locations in the United States, including Atlanta, GA; Austin, TX; Charleston, SC; Dallas, TX; Houston, TX; Nashville, TN; and Washington, DC and a soon to open shop on Magazine Street in New Orleans.
Additionally, Billy Reid collections are sold internationally in top-tier specialty and department stores, including Bergdorf Goodman, Unionmade, Confederacy, Neiman Marcus, Journal Standard, Beams, Mr. Porter, Boon the Shop in Korea and Journal Standard in Japan. The company also operates an e-commerce shop that offers a full range of Billy Reid men's and women's apparel and accessories.

Growing up the daughter of an artist taught Dera Enochson the importance of color and what it could do to improve mood and even influence lifestyle. Years later those childhood lessons became a part of everyday life when she created a line of premium sunless tanning products based on a more natural olive undertone. When most women tan in a healthy way they feel more confident and look more radiant. Creating products that would have to compete with some of the giants of the beauty world was intimidating, but she knew if the line had something new to offer people would take interest. Formulating advanced products that nourished skin while tanning was important.
Having worked at Neiman Marcus at a young age she could draw from her customer’s self-tanning experiences, as well as her own. Working with chemists daily was an exciting learning experience and a chance to improve on the brands of self-tan she’d used in the past. Friends happily tested her first formulas and gave feedback. It took two years to complete the first products in the line.
XEN-TAN started in a single department store and is now sold all over the world.
Working side by side with her husband, Mark, she looks forward to work every day with the challenges of color, texture, and advancements in ingredients that all come together to make a great product.
Working in the Dallas area—the ultimate location for beauty products, beautiful women, and warm weather--is the perfect environment to formulate sunless tan.
