Coco’Pie Clothing is a vibrant, new children’s t-shirt line. We will feature culture rich designs, slogans and imagery reflective of the beauty within ethnicity .
Coco’Pie was inspired by my two young daughters Mikayla age 7, and Kennedy age 3. It all began when shopping one scorching hot Arizona day. Mikayla, age 3 at the time excitedly noticed a t-shirt . This t-shirt featured a little brown girl with two circular ponytails and a huge smile . She excitedly said “It’s me mommy, look it’s me!”
So of course I purchased the shirt , the only one of its kind. She ultimately wore this shirt to no end ; through fading, shrinkage and the best wear a 3yr old could give.
I returned to the store only to find out the design was “seasonal” and would most likely not be in stock again . After searching high and low to no avail , Coco’Pie was born early 2011. Coco’Pie itself derives from the nicknames I gave my girls to describe their beautiful skin .
Both Kennedy and Mikayla are very active in every stage of the design process now . I can see firsthand how it creates an undeniable self esteem and worth.
Our mission is to instill self esteem and pride amongst all of our youth by using these same mirror images of ethnicity. To embrace, encourage, educate and elevate!

I simply adore Coco Pie clothing! I rarely see items in regular department clothing stores, retail stores, or shops that have clothing for my children that have slogans, culture rich designs, and beauty that reflect my children’s ethnicity. Coco Pie clothing is my number one choice for clothing that enhances the lives of my children’s inner and outer beauty everyday. I love Coco Pie clothing for the clothing line teaches children to be proud of who they are, they are special full of Black girl magic!
I fell deeply in love with the tee shirt line that my two year old daughter can mix and match with skirts, pants, shorts, and jeans. I could not believe it when I saw this innovative line of clothing for children of color. I believe that this line of ethnically diverse clothing is a breath of fresh air for mothers who are on a mission to develop and grow their children in a positive manner, a perfect reminder that our children are fearfully and wonderfully made! I am a mother on pursuit of diverse books, clothing, food, any items for my children to express their beautiful identity in a positive light, to develop high self esteem and belief in themselves as leaders of tomorrow!
