Glamour and Girl Power: Meet Jasmin of Vintage Vandal!

Born and raised in New York City, Jasmin R, known online and in retro-revolving circles as ‘Vintage Vandal,’ is a Puerto Rican Las Vegas based clothing designer, business owner, model and more. What began as a passion for vintage fashion and a mission to honor the legacy of forgotten ethnic pinups has blossomed into a blog, social media fanbase and, more recently, a self-designed clothing line called Vintage Vandalizm — there’s nothing this multihyphenate can’t do! “My whole life, I have always spoken to people through my personal style,” said Rodriguez. “I have always celebrated individualism. Clothing has always empowered me. But the dream was to see women wear my designs and also become empowered. I want them to become fearless and still look fierce. Ultimately, my goal is to illustrate my passions through clothes as one of the few Puerto Rican designers in the world.”
