Trash Queen was created by me, Paige! I'm a nb, plus sized, disabled, 27 year old graphic designer and illustrator, and I also run a fashion blog in my spare time. For Trash Queen, I'm the sole owner, maker, designer, fulfiller, everything!
I started selling items under the brand name "Trash Queen" online in 2014, and started out selling just a few small accessories. As the shop grew, I was able to sell t-shirts, and then more complex garments like skater dresses, skirts, and tights! Every year the business and my vision for it grows a bit more!
larger businesses online, but we're
actually a super tiny small business.
I work as a graphic designer
for a major lingerie company.
BY NIGHT (& WEEKENDS)
I work on all aspects of the business:
design, writing, making, and fulfilling.
ALL THE TIME
I'm generally the one responding to
you all and keeping everything running.
needs to be done for the business, but
the below list is a good idea of what you
could find me working on on any given day!
from the concepting stage of designing the clothing,
to me trimming excess threads off of garments
before packing orders up and sealing them with a
cute little logo sticker to make their way over to you!
Designing our social media posts, making business cards and other paper goods like hang tags, designing packaging, etc!
Planning the look of the shoot, finding and hiring models, storyboarding, art directing, coordinating with photographers, editing photos, etc!
Making items, creating prototypes, working with seamstresses to create products for mass production, adding finishing touches, etc!
Packing orders, communicating with customers, wrapping things up to look nice when they get to you, taking things to the post office, etc!
