Cynthia Bailey is winning and she’s keeping black girls in mind as she builds her brand that caters to inspiring women to feel good, to look good, and to do good. Cynthia Bailey’s feel good brand seemed like the natural collaborator with The One Dolls Project a business that strives to make little girls of color feel good about themselves by producing dolls that look like them. Cynthia Bailey joined with husband Peter Thomas and their celebrity friends came together to celebrate The Bailey Agency Doll and celebrate the beauty of black women. Check out our interview with Cynthia below:

Dea & FreddyO: Hey Cynthia! Congrats on the release of your new doll! We are ecstatic for you and this is such a good look! We want to know what was your inspiration in creating your Prettie Girl Doll?

Cynthia Bailey: The inspiration behind The Bailey Agency Doll was my school the Bailey Agency School of Fashion. Most of my kids who come to my school age ranges from five to thirteen years old. I grew up playing with dolls and I never had a doll that looked like me. All of my dolls were white, had long blond hair, and blue eyes. So I thought creating my doll could be an extension of what I do at my school empower and inspire young girls and put a product out there that could relate to them. I wanted to show them a doll that look like me.

Dea & FreddyO: The Bailey Agency Doll is beautiful. Did you have creative license when it came to creating her?

Cynthia Bailey: I had all of the creative license! Any Cynthia Bailey project I am hands on and it’s always 100% my creative vision. Now, I do listen to folks who know more than me but at the end of the day it has to fit my brand and my values.

Dea & FreddyO: She’s right on time for th holidays!

Cynthia Bailey: That she is! She is right on time for the holidays. She would make an excellent Christmas gift. She’s $69.95 and you can find her at www.CynthiaBaileyDoll.com.
