Jamie Lin Snider is a local clothing designer and vintage apparel curator. She’s known for her fashion line, JLINSNIDER, which is housed at Holy City Consignment, a relatively new vintage shop at 283 Meeting St.
Often, she hunts down unique, used clothing at thrift stores along the West Coast and hauls them back to Charleston to be altered and sold in the vintage shop owned by Lauren Tuorto. Snider’s collections also have been featured on the runway at Charleston Fashion Week.
Q: What’s your signature style?
A: My signature style is a bit brash, yet femme. Not afraid to explore and experiment, yet tailored and chic. It’s that balance that I strive for in every garment.
Q: What made you want to plant your roots in the Lowcountry?
A: Charleston is a very inspiring city. From the charm of the crooked, old homes and tiny, cracked streets, there is something to be seen down every alley.
The women who inhabit this town are some of the most naturally beautiful in the world and it’s my dream to dress all those who inspire me. Just a quick stroll down King Street can inspire an entire collection.
Q: When you’re not working, you can probably be found ...
A. Road tripping cross-country with my dog, Huss, and my best friends.
Q: What’s something you’re constantly running out of?
A: I am constantly running out of laundry detergent. Every day I carefully wash loads of vintage (clothing) for all the design lovers in Charleston.
