Store fixtures for upscale Phoenix boutique, HUB Clothing

HUB Clothing opened its doors on Mill Avenue in Tempe, Arizona in 1991. Focused on introducing luxury denim brands and fashion to Arizona, HUB brought Diesel, Nudie, APC, Naked & Famous and Acne among others to the Valley first. HUB has always lead the charge in bringing a unique, distinctive voice to the Phoenix fashion scene. HUB had a long stint of over 20 years in Scottsdale Fashion Square and continued to bring unique fashion and exceptional service to discerning clients.

In 2006, after living and working in NYC and LA, Arizona native Jennifer Mumford moved back to the desert and seized the opportunity to lead HUB. As sole owner and buyer since 2010, Mumford has taken HUB into its next incarnation. In the Fall of 2013, Mumford relocated HUB to the historic and revitalized Phoenix neighborhood of the Central Corridor. With downtown culture buzzing and the demand for quality clothing, HUB has come full circle, back to its root.

CK Valenti Designs built the fixtures for the Central Corridor HUB location. Designed by Jennifer Mumford and Lindsay Smith, the fixtures are constructed of steel and bleached rift-sawn white oak.

Q&A with Jennifer Mumford, Owner, HUB Clothing

Tell us a little about Hub Clothing
HUB Clothing is a Men’s and Women’s clothing boutique that has been in business for over 20 years in Scottsdale and now Phoenix, AZ.  HUB is a luxury denim destination and has introduced Phoenix to the brands Diesel, APC, Genetic, AG, Nudie Jeans, and Naked and Famous to name a few. HUB prides itself on superior customer service and we love to give our clients specialized service. We have recently moved to Central Ave next to Windsor and across from Postino’s Central. We are so excited for the next chapter at HUB, being surrounded by other local businesses and a great neighborhood.

What sets you apart from other clothing boutiques?
At HUB we really love to find the next big thing. We are always searching for new, emerging designers and love to bring those unique fashions to our clients. Also, providing excellent service is our passion. At HUB we will do a custom denim fitting to find you your perfect fit. We are denim specialist and can help any one or any age find their perfect look. HUB also has many one of a kind items and exclusives with many brands that you can’t find anywhere else but HUB.

You designed your store fixtures – what was your inspiration?
The inspiration was clean and classic lines. A Downtown New York aesthetic crossed with a Parisian apartment feel. I used a classic color pallet of black, white and grey with a white wash wood to give a natural texture.

What is your favorite feature of your completed store fixtures?
I think the modular wall fixtures are amazing. They are one of a kind and give me many unique options to merchandise the store.

What has your experience been working with CK Valenti Designs?
Chris has been a true pleasure to work with. He is extremely professional and his engineering and execution on all my fixtures is top notch. Chris was patient with us through the creative process and all the changes and tweaks we made. He also understood our time constraints and pushed through to make our deadlines. I would highly recommend CK Valenti Design to anyone looking for custom furniture pieces whether it is for their business or home.
