Over the past year Slow Southern Style has evolved into my personal hunt for southern fashion designers. With a little bit of luck I find some great individuals to feature here, from small time Etsy artists to people that have worked in the fashion industry with successful lines. I was most recently thrilled to find Troubadour, a label based in Charleston, South Carolina.
With her southern upbringing designer Lindsey Carter has used her background to influence her label Troubadour. Her line is described as “wreckless preppy with a twist of edge” which sounds like sheer perfection to me.
Carter is no stranger to the world of fashion, having interned with Rebecca Minkoff and L.A.M.B. as well as working for J. Crew and Madewell 1937. In 2006 Carter got married, moved back to the South and started designing Carter Humphrey, a high end line of women’s golf wear. This inaugural entrepreneurial experience paved the way for her Troubadour label.
My take on the line is utterly feminine with an eye for great details and draping. The line maintains a sense of chic without being boring basics or trendy items that can only be worn for a few seasons.
