... the spirit of a sunny day in everything we design
Stacey Fraser created Pink Chicken in Amagansett, New York. Taking a break from corporate life and finding her footing as a new mother, Stacey used her daughter's nap time to sew clothes from the fabrics she'd collected over the years. There were baskets of pattern on pattern - bright block prints, Indian cottons, American vintage, all of them so perfectly mismatched. She whipped up little sundresses for her daughters, tunics for herself, simple dressing for each. These were clothes that went from beach to barbecue, park to playdate; with a day-into-dinner kind of ease, they solved practically every get-dress dilemma. Clothes to create in, clothes to explore in.
1 / My name is Stacey and I founded pink chicken 10 years ago after working in design for over 15 years at big corporate companies (think Gap, Ralph Lauren, and Tommy)
2 / Got tired of corporate grind and wanted to be with my girls more and use my time away from them to do something I am passionate about. (Having said that I’m grateful for the experiences and mentors I have had over the years). 3 / I have 2 daughters, 11 and 15 (yes a teenager!!) and a beloved pup Zucc (named after our favorite NY Rangers hockey player) and my supportive husband John. 4 / I have always had a passion for printed textile and color and started making dresses for my girls from vintage fabrics I saved over the years. Then thought hmmm...maybe other people would like these too. 5 / We design all of our prints in house and are usually inspired by vintage textiles, wallpaper, or ethnic details. 6 / I truly LOVE kids, all of them, all ages, shapes, and sizes!! 7 / I love an iced skimm latte 365 days of the year. 8 / I love the beach, my favorite place to be. Always soothes my soul. 9 / Both of my grandmothers were in the fashion business - one had her own boutique in Ohio and the other designed bridesmaid dresses in New York. 10 /#GRATITUDE Want you to know how grateful I am for your support of our little brand. We LOVE dressing your little ones...
looking forward to another 10 years!! XOXO Stacey
