Hampden doubles retail space, increases designer lines
Jul '10
Hampden Clothing – a fashion retailer focused on emerging designers and client relationships announced that it has expanded its Charleston, SC presence by doubling their square footage from 1550 square feet to 2800 square feet. Hampden Clothing is a premier shopping destination that is taking Charleston in a new fashion direction.

With a minimalist approach to décor, Hampden Clothing is finished with stained concrete floors, antique tin-tile ceilings, and sleek chrome fixtures allowing the client to shop individual collections and take-in the designer's vision for the season. Having branched out from other retailers in style and designer assortment, Hampden Clothing has managed to keep the sophisticated, personal, welcoming, southern charm of South Carolina in this dynamic retail space.

Open for 3 ½ years, Stacy Smallwood, owner & buyer felt this new space was an opportunity not to be missed. “We are constantly evolving our brand. Fashion is about change and thinking ahead, so when I saw this beautiful space come available I immediately envisioned how I could keep growing Hampden. This new environment was key to bringing in new collections for Fall 2010 such as Helmut Lang, Cacharel, Acne, Opening Ceremony, Yigal Azrouel, and Chris Benz,” Smallwood says.

Smallwood commented, “We value our relationships with both our designers and our clients.”

“We live in a fast pace world where clients want to look great but may not have time to do the research. That is where we bridge the gap and view it to be our responsibility to know the latest designers, trends, and looks that would be relevant to our client's lifestyle,” Smallwood says. Whether you prefer perusing the racks alone or don't know where to start with this season's trends, a personal stylist is available to offer advice on a complete look or even simple basics.

Smallwood, a South Carolina native, has an extensive background in buying, merchandising, marketing, and client services. As an assistant buyer at Neiman Marcus and department manager for the Neiman Marcus Dallas, TX flagship store, Smallwood established herself in the fashion industry. Merging her corporate background with her own unique vision, Smallwood brings her passion to every aspect of the business as she attends the runway shows in New York, views the collections in the showroom, and ultimately personally styles and consults with the customer in the dressing room.
