"have big dreams, you'll grow into them"
I wanted to introduce to you a project that's been in the works for a very long time, Lee&Lo Market. In the works, but in my mind, because having a brick and mortar store has been my dream for as long as I could remember. Many of those who know me, know of this too, but for those of you who just started on this journey with me, here we go!
With the way the wind is blowing, it feels like that vision of a "brick and mortar" store keeps getting further and further away.
So with the relaunch of Lee&Lo, home to all my creations, it's made it possible to merge this with the second part of my dream; a virtual one stop shop for emerging designers and artisans, with a platform that can reach millions on the world wide web. That is how Lee&Lo Market was born.
This will be a market that blends the new comers and those micro brands that need another place to live, a home where they can sit nicely within the Lee&Lo aesthetic.
