Paige McKinney, the owner of Trash Queen, who is also the maker, designer and everything else behind the fashion brand, is gearing up to release her 2019 fall and winter collection. “It can get stressful sometimes,” McKinney said, but she stays motivated because she sees “a good outfit as a suit of armor,” adding, “I want to continue to make that for the people the fashion industry ignores, because we’re the people who need it most.”
