An order is made by a cutie like yourself. This order gets sent to us through our website and we either go straight to step three if a product is in stock, or move onto the production stage if it's a made-to-order product.
Depending on the product, printed fabric might be sourced or a whole garment produced to the original specifications, either in house for more customized, specific pieces, or externally to help save time or pass savings along to the customers.
When all pieces in an order are finished, the items are checked for quality, branding is added to the piece in the form of a logo or in the form of extras like stickers or postcards along with the purchase, and the purchase is wrapped up and shipped out to you!
* We mean pattern in the the sewing context rather to mean print in this section! Think t-shirts or other trendy/fairly normal silhouettes, like skater skirts or leggings.
** We're really hoping to expand this section as the business grows to be the majority of our items, since it allows us to offer custom sizing and offer our full XS - 5XL size range!
We also like working with a wide arrange of different suppliers and manufacturers to make components of various items for you guys, and switch things up whenever we can to increase quality, automate processes to make our production times faster, or to make things more affordable for you guys. Our production times might be long now, but we're always working to get you guys the best product as quickly as possible and improving things along the way!
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.
We've been through the dressing room blues that you feel when you've found something you love and it just doesn't quite work, and are hoping to eliminate that for as many people as possible.
We're extremely committed to keeping things as affordable as possible, making sure quality is good but the brand is still accessible.
Trash Queen was started in 2014 and is ran by me, Paige, an artsy disabled fat chick with a lot to prove. Read more about me and what I do on our "Maker" page.
Slower, Small Batch Fashion
Trash Queen actively works against fast fashion waste, producing items both externally and internally in small batches and with fair working conditions.
we can dress all shapes and sizes,
but that we actually show them.
We’re not just after making unique clothes for plus sized folks either
(though obviously that’s already a lot more than MOST of the fashion
industry is doing, let’s be real.) We also want that clothing to be affordable,
durable, comfortable, and for it to not contribute to the sort of injustices that
the fashion world is so used to committing.
no airbrushing, no bullshit.
SIZES FOR EVERYTHING
sizes XS - 3XL are available
in all of our pieces
