We recently took a trip down south to Charleston, South Carolina to check out the spring collection from Troubadour Clothing, a clothing line designed by Lindsey Carter. We teamed up with several successful, creative, Charleston based entrepreneurs (and all around great ladies) for a day in the sun modeling the new collection. We had such a great time and we know you’ll love these perfect spring looks.

Tell us about Troubadour Clothing, how you started your company and your background.
Troubadour is a women’s contemporary brand I started in 2009. After finishing design school at FIT in 2004, I was hired at J.Crew a few weeks later. Originally, I was on the men’s side, and at that point in time Mickey Drexler was starting the highly secretive concept “M,” which turned out to be Madewell. I was hired over to the start-up design team at Madewell and needless to say I was a pretty “green” (as in young in my career) designer handling multiple categories, including marketing and trim development, I must have done 100 back pocket jean sketches for the Madewell jean! Looking back, it was truly an amazing experience. I rekindled with my high school and college sweetheart and got engaged in late 2007. We moved back down South (after a short stint in the Dominican Republic, long story!) and a couple years later Troubadour was born.
