Charleston-based resortwear brand
begins retail venture,
broadens product
offering


 The first-ever retail store for internationally known resort and beachwear brand Escapada Living is now open in Mount Pleasant.
“Charleston is the perfect location to launch the first Escapada Living Signature Store,” said Natalia Castillo, founder and creative director of Escapada Living. “This is where the brand first got its start – and the community has embraced our clothing in such an inspiring way. We have great plans for expanding the company, and it only makes sense to start in our hometown.”
The Escapada Signature Store invites customers to experience Escapada Living in a gorgeous retail setting that reflects the essence of the brand - easy luxe-for-less pieces that exude femininity and that effortlessly transition from beach days to city nights, allowing women to embrace the versatility of their lifestyle.
The store offers a broad range of items for women comprised of pieces from Escapada Living’s latest collections, fun accessories and gift items, and apparel from a variety of other brands, including Julie Brown, Tara Michelle, NYDJ, Before and Again, Level 99 and Lolo Bags.
“Being able to interact with our customers in the store on a daily basis also ensures our pieces relate to the Escapada woman. We’re thrilled to get to know our Charleston customers on an even more personal level and provide them with fun, vibrant clothing that reflects their lifestyle,” said Castillo.  
The Mount Pleasant store is the first of several anticipated signature retail locations in key resort destinations, including Palm Beach and Naples, Florida. Pop-up shops to expand the brand’s international presence are also planned for the Caribbean and Australia.
Customers can visit the Escapada Living Signature Store in Belle Hall Shopping Center located at 644F Long Point Road, Mount Pleasant, S.C. 29464.
The Escapada Signature Store is also on Facebook at www.facebook.com/EscapadaSignatureStore and Instagram at www.instagram.com/EscapadaSignatureStore.
