We had the good fortune of connecting with Quincey Yates and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Quincey, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
The main thought process behind starting our brand was pushing the culture forward with a new creative lane, and also showing others the excitement and importance of collaboration.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
‘Kids In Color’ as a whole is a Custom Tye-Dye Streetwear Brand. We run a double operation of retailing our in-house freestyled or remixed pieces, and offer a service of creating requested items for brands and individual consumers. Our brand is the perfect way for me to bridge my passion of art, fashion, and business all in one. Our mission is to create dope art daily and really spread our reach as far as possible, through real community partnership and creative collaborations. A lot of Multi-Media’s next!
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Big ShoutOut to Elementary Coffee Company, located at the Harrisburg, PA midtown market AND north st! They were the first local brick and mortar to reach out and we have been on a roll ever since. Also, SUPER cool staff and great coffee Ofcourse!
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My wife and partner Raina is also the cofounder of the brand and the lead artist. My roll is mostly marketing and new business acquisitions, while Raina gets complete credit on the original tie-dyer in the house, creating most of the pieces we have created, and managing our social media personality.
