Charlotte von Meister

Charlotte von Meister is the Co-Founder of The Nest, Providence’s first secondhand style collective. With the goal to elevate and incubate sustainable style, she is on mission to show people that they can be stylish & sustainably-minded while also supporting their community.

Charlotte has a degree in Fashion Marketing and Management from Savannah College of Art and Design. Then moved to New York City where she gained entrepreneurial experience working at the ground level of two different start-up fashion brands. Charlotte loves the power of fashion to express style & authenticity, but after learning just how wasteful the industry truly is, she quit to pursue a new career as a professional organizer. She is now a silver level certified KonMari Consultant and works with her clients to help them shed the excess clutter in their lives and focus on becoming more conscious consumers.

Charlotte is excited to use The Nest as a platform to spread her mindset on intentional living and show people that they can learn to live with less without sacrificing anything.
