One of the requirements for upgrading to the Emporium is to pass 4 Gracie fashion checks.. yet.. I've never seen her in my town ever!

Does she appear on a specific day or in a certain place at all?

Thank you!

That's probably why I haven't seen her since I only got T.I.Y recently. Is there a foolproof way to pass the fashion checks?

Well, you have to wear as many clothes/hats/accessories/socks/shoes that correspond to the theme that Gracie asks you as possible. If you actually do a great job, you might receive one of GracieGrace items without needing T&T Emporium.

I'd also like to add that you also have to spend 70,000 bells at the T.I.Y. mart before she appars too.

On some fashion checks, wearing even a little bit of a certain other look, will cause you to fail. Having said that, it is possible to pass a fashion check without having all of the same look. Just make sure you have more of the look she wants than not.

I've read that some themes will clash (like you wouldn't want to wear something sporty and something official at the same time), which is what I think Tennant meant by "if you wear a little bit of a different look, you'll fail."

It's the name of the 4th Nookling store expansion.

Oh. This seems hard ._.

I just assumed the gracie fashion stuff was the same as old games. I still can't find her but hopefully she'll show up sometime soon.

I thought it was a play on D.I.Y at first but that doesn't really make sense.
Usually the names are a bit more creative than that.

Considering it was the Home Center in japanese version & semi-merges with the garden shop it's clearly supposed to be something like Timmy/Tommy It Yourself

wonder if there's any dialog that has them spell it out

That doesn't really make any sense though as a name ._.

Is there a list/website of some sort that lists what 'look' certain clothing items are? I finally found her so but I'm having awful luck at completing her requested looks. I don't know what falls under 'modern'. I could've sworn there was a site for it, but I can't seem to locate that.

Try this one: http://www.thonky.com/animal-crossing-new-leaf/gracie-fashion-check/

It is worth nothing that in the clothing store and the shoe store you are told what style each item belongs to when you purchase it.

I agree, I think it's a play om DIY, maybe "Two It Yourself"?
