Marche, Marche…

Welcome to the official Le Petit Marche Blog!

We are very excited about this and promise to be a delight!
As a way of introducing ourselves I'll just give an overview of who we are, what we do and what we aim to achieve from this.

Established in February 2009, Le petit Marche is a monthly mini market that showcases talent, individuality and a variety of choice!

Le Petit Marche for those who don't know means small market. It creates an avenue for new/ established indigenous designers and entrepreneurs to network, get recognized and engage their customers. Our vendors feature stalls with a wide variety of merchandise from shoes, tee-shirts, Jeans, Dresses and bags including name brands, high street and vintage labels to Art, Jewelry and many more

At LPM we celebrate creativity and downright go-gettery!!

With our selection of designers,  the goal of LPM is to position itself as a respected fashion establishment in Nigeria, not only for end-consumers, but also for fashion merchandisers, editors, trend forecasters, and so on. 

All vendors are given a display space where they present and sell their collections themselves.  All designers are selected according to the originality and quality of their products.
We like to think of ourselves as Nigeria's Number Fashion and EVERYTHING market!!!
So in essence this is an avenue to keep all our vendors and happy shoppers up to date on LPM matters and anything we think you may find interesting
