Behind Maisie Jayne


 
1. Tell us a little bit about Maisie Jayne

Maisie Jayne clothing is all about cute and comfortable clothing for our kiddos. I really love quirky, whimsical prints that catch the eye and offer something more unique than you can buy at the big stores. I stick mainly to knit fabrics because they are simply comfortable and soft, I know I prefer my yoga pants to my jeans! My clothing is simple in nature, easy to wear and get on and off. I have two lines of clothing; my original line of harem pants, rompers, dresses and headbands available at my etsy shop shopmaisiejayne.etsy.com and my newer line of knee patch leggings, shorts, scarves and more made from organic cotton knits available at maisiejayne.com. I recently began partnering with artists to design fabric prints exclusive to Maisie Jayne for my organic line which has been really fun! Right now at maisiejayne.com I have a line of goods in nautical inspired prints designed by Austin Lane. Later in autumn I will have a line of cowboy inspired prints coming out designed by Andrea Lauren!

2. Who is behind Maisie Jayne? Tell us a bit about the owner and the reason why Maisie Jayne stared.

I, Abbie Whynot, am the mastermind behind Maisie Jayne but my daughter is the inspiration. When I was pregnant with Maisie I was a software engineer at a big company. I truly didn’t know until I held her in my arms if I would be returning to work. I decided I just couldn’t go back, I wanted to be there to see all of her milestones and smiles, the time goes by so fast I didn’t want to miss any of it. I also knew that if I were going to stay home I needed to find something else to fill my time and provide an outlet for my creative energy. When she was 4 months old, in March of 2013, I opened my etsy shop with a couple pairs of harems and a few headbands. I have had pretty linear growth since that time and feel very fortunate to have found success with my business in such a short amount of time. That original line has grown to over 60 fabric options for the harems and headbands as well as adorable harem rompers and circle skirt dresses added earlier this year. Around the end of 2013 I decided to expand into an organic line of leggings, beanies, headbands, circle scarves etc. and launched the maisiejayne.com website. I knew there were a lot of people doing organic leggings and wanted to add a special, differentiating touch to them so I added cute little knee patches in contrasting fabrics. They are so cute, I love dressing my Maisie in them! I joined Instagram around the same time and it has been the best social tool for marketing my business. I love how active the community is, it’s a great way to reach your customers directly and promote your brand. It can be a bit of a problem because it introduces you to so many great brands that it’s hard not to just buy everything I see!

In my spare time I love to dance! I have been dancing since I was 18 at local community colleges. Modern is my favorite though I enjoy ballet and jazz as well….you do not want to see me do hip hop :). I will be performing for the first time in 4 years in August at a local theater.



3. Is there any brand besides yours that you would recommend or that you admire?


I admire so many businesses. It’s amazing to see all of the amazing and entrepreneuring mothers out there make it happen for themselves and their families. We all work so hard. I never put this many hours into my professional career, this job, like parenting, is a 7 days a week gig. One of my old friends, Cashmere, from ballet classes is the owner of BOAcreates (www.boacreates.com). I watched as she launched her business and now it has exploded! I admire her energy and that she is always trying out new ideas. Her offerings are constantly evolving and I am so excited to see her amazing AW14 line! I also covet items from Duchess and Lion Co and Elskan, I am never fast enough on the draw to snag any!
