This Brand Doesn’t Want You to Take it Seriously

Shailah Maynard’s brand, Working Girls, is arguably a byproduct of meme culture. Inspired by the ’80s and ’90s, Maynard designs products that are both nostalgic and ironic. Amongst her more original creations, you can find sheer organza “thank you” bags and a resin toilet seat adorned with flowers.

“I’m not that serious of a person, and neither is Working Girls,” explained Maynard in an interview with the Urban Outfitters blog. “I hope that people who follow along and buy our products find some entertainment with our merch. I don’t take myself too seriously and am proud that that is translated through Working Girls.”

Based in Cincinnati, Maynard’s brand began as a line of pool floats shaped like different body parts.“My focus now is mainly design and installation, but I love teaching myself new skills, so who knows what the next thing will be,” says Maynard. In the meanwhile, you can head over to her online store where you can find a mixture of apparel, accessories, and other oddities.
