Desmond's Picks

Desmond's Picks

Desmond is a powerhouse of a personal shopper. Growing up 45 minutes outside of Charleston, Desmond obtained his education and love for fashion in the downtown area. He originally wanted to be in menā€™s fashion, but after an internship with Stacy and the Hampden team in 2014, his career choice quickly changed. His style is considered to be eclectic, consistent and confident. Besides being a senior personal shopper, he is a part of Hampdenā€™s buying trips to assist in pre-selecting our assortment for the upcoming seasons. His favorite Hampden brands are Marni, La Collection, Proenza Schouler, Khaite, and Stoned. If youā€™re ready to be pushed in your style, Desmond is your guy!ā€œ

1. I BELIEVE IN WEARING WHAT YOU LIKE AND FEELING GOOD ABOUT THAT AS OPPOSED TO HAVING TOO MANY OUTSIDE OPINIONS ON YOUR OUTFIT. AT THE END OF THE DAY, YOUā€™RE THE ONE WEARING IT, AND HOW YOU FEEL SHOULD RELATIVELY TRUMP ANYONE ELSEā€™S OPINION OF HOW THEY THINK YOU SHOULD LOOK. BUT STILL HAVE AN OPEN MIND TO TRY NEW THINGS.

2. DONā€™T TAKE YOURSELF TOO SERIOUSLY! FASHION IS SUPPOSED TO BE FUN AND EXPRESSIVE.

3. LASTLY, PLEASE GET DRESSED! PUTTING TOGETHER A LOOK FOR THE DAY ALMOST ALWAYS MAKES BOOSTS YOUR MOOD. AND SOMETIMES YOU NEVER KNOW WHO YOUā€™LL RUN IN TO OR WHERE THE DAY WILL GO.ā€
