A very delightful and powerful conversation with Nikki Graves, CEO of Trinity Designs, Inc.
Nikki’s journey into doll making did not start with a love of dolls, surprisingly she was not into dolls at all but out of her desire to find a doll that was a tribute to her sorority as a Delta, and with no luck finding one, Nikki decided to take matters into her own hands and develop a doll that represented her and her sorority. That decision led to her creating not only her own doll but has expanded into a line of dolls that celebrate the Divine 9 sororities.
Nikki also shares the journey she has taken to building a doll company, the challenges, triumphs and how emotional she felt with creating and then seeing her first doll, from concept to something tangible. Once she saw it, she knew other sororities would want one of their own and she realized she wanted to continue to create and celebrate black beauty through dolls.
We also get to talk about her companies endeavor to produce high quality collectibles that inspire, captivate, and encourage young women and children to love the skin they’re in and the importance of having a doll company owned by a woman of color and what that represents for diverse doll creations.
Nikki also has a wonderful surprise for everyone as she shares information about the growth and expansion of the company into creating other types of dolls that will be coming in 2023. Some truly exciting news.
