Jaime-Jin Lewis


John GianninyJaime-Jin is a left-handed, both-brained, mover and shaker. She identifies as a queer, Korean-American, transracially-adopted bad feminist who enjoys biking, fermenting foods and making Beyonce fan art. When it comes to fashion, Jaime-Jin prefers clothes that are simple and comfortable. You’ll usually find her in black jeans and a blouse, paired with loafers and minimal jewelry. She loves Tabii Just for many reasons, not the least of which is the way the rich patterns push her slightly out of her comfort zone. Jaime-Jin believes that fashion can be a vehicle of self-expression, a way of defining ourselves in a world that often wants to define us. She appreciates the vibrancy of New Yorkers’ self-expression and finds inspiration amongst the concrete jungle everyday. Jaime-Jin has a Bachelors of Urban and Environmental Planning from the University of Virginia and serves on the Board of Scholarly and Community Advisors for the Crossing Borders, Bridging Generations project of The Brooklyn Historical Society and on the Advisory Boards of Colored Criticism, Prepare Inc., and the Independent School Diversity Network. She hails from Charlottesville, Virginia, has spent extensive time in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and currently resides in Brooklyn, New York.
