Vamp Official is a Columbus-based, small business women's clothing store. We keep up with all the latest trends and love all things neutral. We enjoy helping you find quality pieces you can mix and match in your wardrobe at a price point you'll feel good about. We launch new arrivals every week, so check back regularly!

Vamp Official was founded in 2016 when Ellen was a senior in college at Ohio State. For about a year she built the business online and set up pop up shops, until she opened the brick and mortar store in July 2017 in the Short North District of Columbus Ohio. Meet the team below!


ELLEN SHIRK - Founder & Owner
HOMETOWN

Columbus & probably never leaving - I love it here :)

FAVORITE PART ABOUT OWNING A BUSINESS
I get to be creative every single day doing what makes me happy. It makes all of the hard work so worth it!

WHERE I'LL BE IN 10 YEARS
I used to work in architecture so I think in 10 years I'll have a family & flip houses with them like Chip & Joanna.

EARLY BIRD OR NIGHT OWL?
I am always the most productive after midnight & I'm a super last minute person. Which is why I'm ALWAYS running late.


IF YOU COULD ONLY HAVE THREE APPS ON YOUR PHONE, WHICH THREE WOULD YOU PICK?

Can't live without Spotify, my Google calendar, or Uber Eats lol.


CONNOR MCCLURE - Manager of Operations & Model

HOMETOWN
Toledo, Ohio and probably never moving back :)

WHERE I'LL BE IN 10 YEARS
Married with lots of dogs and lots of kids! I would love to grow with vamp and have my own store or maybe open a vegan bakery.

WHERE YOU CAN FIND ME ON MY DAYS OFF
You can find me cuddling with the love of my life, my dog, Skelly!

WHO ARE SOME OF YOUR FASHION INFLUENCES
Hailey Bieber, Deana Duka, Lauren Elizabeth


IF YOU COULD ONLY EAT ONE THING FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE WHAT WOULD IT BE

Vegan nachos & donuts!


GRACE NANNI - Manager of Sales

HOMETOWN
I’m from Rocky River, a suburb of Cleveland... nicknamed the bubble because everybody knows everything... unfortunate at times lol.

WHERE YOU CAN FIND ME ON MY DAYS OFF
Exploring new cafes and shops with my friends. One of my favorite things is to sit at a cafe all day with friends and get my work done for the week.

FAVORITE SPOT IN THE SHORT NORTH
I think I would die for the Warm Ricotta Appetizer at Forno...


MY IDOL
Iris Apfel - A fashion icon with insane style who got a modeling contract at age 97.

HOW I WOULD DESCRIBE MY STYLE
Edgy with a professional twist. I grew up with two brothers, so believe it or not they inspire me. Oversized tops with a cool pair of sneakers can make any outfit killer.
