Long before the birth of Pink Chicken, founder Stacey Fraser was a little girl swirling in vintage fabrics in her grandmother’s clothing boutique. Perched in the backroom, she listened in on vendor meetings and watched in awe as her poised Mimi set the stage for her own future success in the fashion industry.
Pink Chicken, Then and Now
Fast forward to 2009.
After nearly 15 years in the fashion corporate world, Stacey decided to take a break and focus on her young daughter and new baby girl while living in NYC and spending summer weekends at the beach. During nap times, she would sew garments made of a multitude of patterns from bright block prints to 60’s florals. The spirit of sunny beach days and her love for vintage textiles came together to create easy and stylish pieces for the beach or dinner, for herself and her daughters.
She knew she was onto something when people stopped her in the streets and asked her where she got those happy, boho pieces. So Pink Chicken was born - of vintage roots, happy mixes of color and patterns, and most of all- the shared spirit of mothers and daughters.
Today, Pink Chicken is more than a clothing company.
It’s a joyful flock.
Of happy and creative souls.
Of mothers and daughters.
What We Believe In
Our sunny collection of bright block prints, vintage-inspired patterns and not-so-basic basics will have you walking on air from park to playdate, and beach to barbecue. We believe that when children love and feel comfortable in their clothing, it boosts their confidence and sparks imagination, creativity, and joy.
While all the details make us sing, unique patterns make Pink Chicken pieces truly special. We take inspiration from decades past and faraway places, and design *all* of our prints and patterns in-house. With each new season, we’re happily stitching the spirit of a sunny day into every garment we make.
Did you know that for every 10 dresses sold, Pink Chicken gives one away? With your help, we’re making days brighter for children everywhere. To date, we’ve donated 25,000 pieces of clothing and counting. We’re so thankful for the flock that helps us spread happiness wherever we go. Learn More

Every stitch and detail of a Pink Chicken frock is created to last for generations and transcend the trends. Dresses transition effortlessly to tunics through your child’s growth spurts and can be passed down from child to child. Every piece can weather the wear of playing, exploring and happy adventuring.
As mothers, we know how important it is to take care of the Earth for future generations. It starts in our office where we've eliminated all paper and plastic as well as our retail stores where we are phasing out single use bags, and ends on your doorstep with pieces that last for years to come, delivered in 100% recycled mailers.
Christina caught the fashion bug early, playing dress up with her stylish and well-traveled Abuelita. She carries the essence of the Pink Chicken vibe with her love for the beach. She is an accomplished runner, and has finished 8 marathons, and counting, and is halfway to completing the Six Abbott World Marathon Majors!
Hailing from Texas (yes, she does own a horse), Courtney came to New York by way of Paris. Resident cotton candy addict of the Pink Chicken team, she brings energy and joy to the office daily. Her creative spirit shows up in Pink Chicken’s vintage-meets-boho patterns and prints.
Fatima speaks four languages AND made the switch from engineering to fashion design, and we’re so glad she did. She makes sure factories get the products perfect and that YOU get your orders on time. She usually has an avocado in hand, and we love her for it.
Marielle, our latest addition to the PC design team, made her way to NYC via Michigan! Growing up in a large family (she is a triplet!), Marielle spent much of her time on the lake and her grandma helped spark her love for fashion by teaching her how to sew. When she isn’t working on fresh prints and patterns for the brand, you can find her spending time with her beloved cat, Spooky Butt.
Laurel made the trek from Madison, WI to Madison Ave, bringing a dash of the midwest to Pink Chicken. She’s a true visionary- breathing life and color into the stores with new products. She follows in the footsteps of her grandparents, who passionately owned and operated a clothing store for 40 years.
Erin is a self-proclaimed musical theatre nerd, with her devoted rescue pup, Harley, by her side. When she isn’t throwing down at spin classes and exploring her new hometown city of Charleston, Erin is constantly thinking of fresh marketing ideas for the brand.
Born and raised in Northern California, Amber comes to PC with tons of E-commerce experience - and being the oldest of five children, she knows how to get things done! When she isn’t making sure the website is running smoothly and researching new apps to keep the site up to date, she loves doting on her chunky cat named Pickles and running the streets of NYC - she is currently training for her first half marathon!
If you have contacted customer service, you probably already know Julia - a Jersey girl who goes the extra mile to make sure that you are happy with your orders. She lives off caffeine and salads, and when she isn’t working, she loves going for runs, listening to music and being the best dog mom to puppy Dakota!
A mom of two, Suzanne’s had a lifelong career in the fashion industry before she landed happily at Pink Chicken. When not spending time with her family and dog in NJ, she loves wandering the City, headphones on, cup of coffee in hand, with nowhere to be.
What would we do without Emma?! She makes sure all the Pink Chicken frocks get into special stores across the country. When she isn’t doting on her Frenchie, Winston, Emma hones her creative skills at cosmetology school and is a pro with special effects makeup.
Geoff is a four-time triathlete and the Pink Chicken finance guru. He is a true New Yorker living on the Upper West Side, but his real happy place is at the beach, building sandcastles and swimming in the ocean with his wife and two sons.
Albert keeps this ship running with his impeccable bookkeeping. He relishes in a weekend away with his wife, Kathy, his two fierce and lovable teenagers, Louise and Grace, and his acoustic guitar.
Our Store Squad
Rebecca is the reigning customer service queen, properly trained to handle any and all situations through raising her two kids - now teenagers. She loves the ocean, she even swam with whale sharks. Yes, whale sharks, the largest sharks on the planet. When she’s back on land, she has a weakness for pickles and smarties, but not at the same time.
Blair is the cheery face of Pink Chicken on the Upper East Side of Manhattan - where she also lives by way of Georgia! When she is not chatting up customers and making the Madison Avenue store look its best, you can find her roaming Target (buying things she may or may not need!), walking around the city streets with an iced coffee in hand or painting at home!
Samantha, our store manager of our newest shop on Bleecker Street, is a native New Yorker who has worked in women’s fashion for over ten years! She is passionate about bringing her creative style to Pink Chicken and making sure that everyone who steps into her store has the most joyful experience possible. She is super outdoorsy - in her free time, you will find her running or cycling around the city and in the winter she loves challenging herself to ski down the toughest trails in Colorado!
Chloe brings the most positive energy and light to our little store in the LowCountry! After graduating from the College of Charleston where she studied Women’s Studies and Communications, she walked into the store on King Street to inquire about a job, and after chatting with Rebecca for nearly 2 hours, the rest is history! An avid book reader who loves a good brunch, you can find Chloe biking around downtown Charleston, discovering new alleyways and libraries!
