On October 1st, 2011, Nigeria’s independence anniversary, Le Petit Marche prepares to launch L’Espace, a centralized retail store where Nigeria’s fashionistas can shop for designs at affordable prices. L’Espace is the growing response to a need for more retail boutiques in the country. See the details on the launch from LPM below:
“In the storied tradition of international fashion and lifestyle retail, LPM is curating a permanent multi-brand concept store tailored to the needs of the Nigerian public – filling a yawning chasm in the retail value chain for both the fashion entrepreneur and the buying public.
The co-branded store will be an addition to the monthly market in Lagos, and the LPM team plans to roll out the existing monthly market as well as concept stores in Abuja and Port Harcourt mid 2012.
We are interested in hearing from vendors in the following categories:
– Fashion (Menswear, Womenswear and Children)
– Fashion and Lifestyle Services
The first concept store will be situated in a 600 sqm retail space in a centrally located part of Victoria Island, Lagos. It will be home to a minimum of 35 brands spanning the fashion, beauty, fashion and beauty services and lifestyle industries.
We will also be introducing exciting LPM-centric products and services, such as ‘the Advisory’ (a private personal shopping experience) and limited edition collections exclusive to L’Espace!
In a bid to continue fulfilling our brand mission to be the premier fashion and lifestyle retail solution, we are creating a one-stop shop for fashion and lifestyle, expanding our existing model to better serve our vendors and the end consumer.
