Lesley Hampton, 2019 SWAIA Fashion Show

Lesley Hampton was a ‘third culture kid’ and her early life was one of constant relocation. Formative years spent in Canada’s Arctic and Atlantic, Australia, England, Indonesia, and New Caledonia, added to her quest to establish a personal and cultural identity. Lesley defines herself through the amalgamation

of the indigeneity, to her Anishinaabe and Mohawk heritage, as well as, her early nomadic upbringing. Becoming a nomad through experiences with boarding school, international school, adoption, and cross-cultural experiences, Lesley nurtured a passion for socio-cultural concepts, to help define her identity, and reconnect with her indigenous roots.

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.
