Black Women With Style: Tracie of Flying Giraffe Co.

Tell me about your self:
I am the founder x Creative force behind Flying Giraffe an online store/brand catering to Vintage as well as Contemporary wear for men and women. I was born in MD, grew up on a small island in the Caribbean known as Grenada and went to College in NY.  I find joy and inspiration in the smallest things and spaces.

What inspires you: 
I am inspired by any and everything around me. I pull inspiration from the past as well as present from culture, colors, landscapes, patterns and shapes, not to mention the greats that came before me.

How long have you been creating clothes? 
What you see through display are collections of what goes through my mind, my imagination as well as my overall feelings, that's one aspect of my life it's impossible for me to be private about.

What is your favorite thing about what you do? 
The most rewarding thing about what I do, is watching it grow before my very eyes. I remember when Flying Giraffe was a mere thought, it's so fulfilling the fact that its an entity unfolding with the many surprises it encompasses thru my very eyes, Now that is PRICELESS.

What are your dreams and goals? 
My dreams and goals wouldn't be dreams if I revealed them would they. I tend to keep my dreams to myself. I'm a steadfast believer in the concept of "doing", ill let my dreams speak for themselves and Flying Giraffe is one of them.

What products do you use in your hair?
 What products do I not use in my hair! My most valuable products are Organic Coconut oil, Aloe Vera juice, jojoba oil as well as Raw Shea Butter homemade concoction. Currently I'm sticking to the Nexus line for my washing and conditioning regimen, for DC I use Shea Moisture Deep treatment masque.

 My words of inspiration:
    Keep God first in all you do, enjoy every moment of your journey and take it easy.
