Feel The Pain And Move Forward with Tracy Nicole
Tracy Nicole is the designer & visionary of Tracy Nicole Clothing and today is a very special day! Her line debuts in 10 Belk Stores in the Southeast. This Cool Soror of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. is the linesister, former roommate and close friend to our host. In a very personal and moving interview, Tracy Nicole does not hold back.
Born into a life of domestic violence by the hands of her biological father, Tracy believed that was what loved looked like. She almost perpetuated the cycle ending up in an emotionally and physically abusive relationship herself at a very young age. She knew that her life was not supposed to look like that. Learning to love herself through therapy, Tracy later relived her childhood in her book, “Who Said Peaches Were Perfect.” Although she hid behind fictional characters, it allowed her to face her own truth. That truth eventually allowed her to heal.
Tracy opened Tracy Nicole in 2006 and remained opened for five years. She moved her store to completely online shortly after closing her doors. But the designer Tracy was ready to give birth to her line. And she did just that.
Tracy Nicole Clothing is a beautiful line for women of all shapes and sizes. Soon to launch men’s and children’s lines, the Belk partnership is only the beginning.
Tracy Nicole has overcome a lot, including breast cancer. Her diagnosis and recovery gave her life-changing perspective. The type of perspective that pushes her to keep going, despite the obstacles. Pain is a part of this life we live. But Tracy has learned to “feel the pain and move forward” anyway.
