Tell us a bit about yourself…
HOMETOWN: Alexandria, VA
CURRENT TOWN: NYC!
FAVE ICE CREAM FLAVOR: mint chocolate chip! (hagen daz)
FAVE BREAKFAST FOOD: I usually don’t eat breakfast but if I am going to treat myself, nothing like a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich.
FAVE HOLIDAY: Thanksgiving! All about family and friends and food. . . being grateful and giving back. No presents getting in the way.
FAVE COLOR: So hard to choose! I love all colors.
FAVE DECADE: The 70’s – love the bohemian vibe and hippy clothes.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE? I have always been a dress girl… You can find me in a dress and flip flops every day. At Pink Chicken, we say our clothes are ‘no fuss and always stylish’.
WHAT ARE THE MOST REWARDING AND MOST DIFFICULT PARTS OF RUNNING YOUR OWN BUSINESS? One of the most rewarding things is seeing kids wearing your clothes… I am surprised and so excited in the best way every time! And the most difficult, I would say, is all the hats you have to wear, the creative, brand development and customers I love. But a lot of my time is spent in production, finance, shipping, technology issues, etc.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR KIDS AND HOW YOU BALANCE WORK/MOM LIFE. My girls have always been a big part of the business, they are my little muses. They tell me what they and their friends love and what they don’t. they love working/playing in the stores and being a part of the photo shoots. I think they are proud of me which makes it all worth it.
IF YOU COULD TRAVEL ANYWHERE, WHERE WOULD IT BE? I LOVE India and Tulum, Mexico, probably my two favorite places ever. I have never been to Morocco though, and I think that would be amazing and inspiring!
IF YOU COULD POSSESS A SUPERPOWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE? I’m not sure it’s a super power but I would love to be able to eat whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted to stay healthy and strong! Donuts and BBQ ribs, bring it on!
TELL US ABOUT YOUR COLLABORATION WITH THE LAND OF NOD. WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT IT? We are so excited about this collaboration. To be in the company of such incredible brand is amazing, I’m still pinching myself. It’s amazing to see what we do every day for clothing come to life in a room. I learned so much from Jason, Nod’s head of merchandising, and he was amazing to work with.
HOW WOULD YOU STYLE IT IN A ROOM? Well I love how Nod styled the crib… the mix of patterns is everything. Our crib bedding with the Ashley Goldberg graphic rug is perfect!
ANY HOBBIES & INTERESTS? I love to go listen to live music, I used to do it a ton living in the city in my 20’s … and I’m making an effort to get out more now too!

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 naptime to sew clothes from the fabrics she’d collected over the years. She whipped up little sundresses for her daughters, tunics for herself, simple dressing for each. She knew she’d tapped into something people wanted and something that she, as a designer, loved. And thus, Pink Chicken was born.
