Our Brand


Founded on the principles of inclusivity, identity, awareness, and heritage, the LESLEY HAMPTON brand’s inspiration is defined by the characteristics developed from being a Third Culture Kid and critiques their application in present day society in fashion, media, and pop culture. Diversity is at the core of every piece created by LESLEY HAMPTON; with a focus on evening-wear and occasion-wear.  The brand draws inspiration from notations that embody inclusivity, and broader perceptions of beauty that leads to mental health awareness and body-positive advocacy. 
The LESLEY HAMPTON community being built by our brand allows for the creation of body positivity, mental health awareness, and diversity in fashion. By coming together and welcoming all individuals, we create a space for support, belonging, and experience. We take pride in empowering our community, by donating a portion of our profits to assist other positive spaces for growth, including, indigenous communities and mental wellness platforms.
