MessQueen New York is a Brooklyn-based clothing company specializing in spandex wear for the young-at-heart souls of the universe.
We began making wildly printed neon leggings back in 2007 before leggings became a universal wardrobe staple.
What started as a hobby having only ourselves, friends and family wear them, we began to notice there was a tiny underground market sprouting for leggings. In the summer of 2010, we opened up our first online shop with Etsy and began to create the MessQueen brand.
After a couple of years, the legging trend became a world-wide sensation and everyone and their mother started to make and sell them. Having so many new competitors, it was time for us to expand the line and offer more high quality handmade styles for a complete outfit.
We now carry not only leggings, but also harem pants, shorts, tops, skirts, bodysuits, dresses, swimwear, as well as pussy bows which we make using our fabric scraps.
One of the most important qualities we stand strongly by is that all of our products are handmade in-house in our Brooklyn studio - from creating the paper patterns for each style to cutting and sewing the garments. We feel the handmade aspect gives that special touch of care to each garment, and also allows for modifications per customer's requests.
Additionally, we also have a children's line called Tiny Terribles, "We may be small but we got big plans", that consists of children's leggings, skirts, and shorts.
We believe that our styles are meant for everyone to wear! By that we mean "Nobody gets left out". We take on all sorts of custom size requests, big and small, and strive to meet each customers' special needs to help make them feel great about the bodies they were given.
Our customer ages have ranged from newborn up to 76 years old..style should never fade no matter your age.
We constantly strive to produce trendy, bizarre, colorful, high quality products and we encourage customers to tell us about any particular styles they wish to see in the shop.
The MessQueen team is a lady-run business and consists of two main babes:
Courtney Gamble, your MessQueen - owner/designer/pattern maker/seamstress/sales/social media/client relations/HBIC/and a bit of everything else
Mackenzie Romig - assistant designer/seamstress/Courtney's right-hand-woman
Throughout the year, we house school-credited interns that assist in production (cut/sew), social media, sales, photo shoots, and events.
