Bracey has been designing clothes since she was six-years-old when she would cut up her socks to make outfits for her Barbie dolls. "One day, my mom caught me — she was mad," Bracey told BuzzFeed. "But then she realized that this was something I could use, so when I was seven-years-old, she taught me how to use a sewing machine."
After that, Bracey was hooked. She made clothes for herself and her friends throughout high school and college. And while attending Texas Woman's University in Denton for fashion design, she started making swimsuits for a friend's line of beauty-pageant-specific swimwear.
