In 2012, Nicole Dortch, a multi-talented and courageous young woman, began pursuing her long-overdue dream in fashion and embarked on a quest to create the ultimate experience in intimate apparel.
Nicole traveled daily from Washington, DC, to New York to pursue her dream of becoming an Intimate Apparel Designer. Her goal, to design exquisite lingerie, and her challenge was working full time in Finance and attending school at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. She was determined to achieve her dream across state lines regardless of the distance.
After many years of working in the fashion and retail industry, Nicole decided to combine her true love of fashion and obsession for intimate apparel into a brand. A full-service boutique, offering fashion-forward styles, bra fitting services, solutions for post-surgery and mastectomy, and luxury concierge.
After a girl’s trip to Paris, she found the missing link to her vision in several boutiques. The unique styles, interior design, and exceptional customer service those stores exhibit is what she wanted to bring back to the US. Her source of inspiration, Paris, a glass of champagne, and a string of pearls. She decided to name her brand Petit à Petit (little by little in French) on her trip.
Petit à Petit is not just a bra and panty shop; it's the ultimate experience in intimate apparel. Whose mission is to provide a luxury experience in the evolution of womanhood. Nicole immediately researched the best brands to support her vision and applied her education in fabrication and construction to select the right partners to provide high-quality products in a wide array of sizes and styles.
Today, Petit à Petit continues to service their guest virtually and at their store with fashion-forward styles, fittings, solutions and lingerie educational series, and partnerships with community organizations. They are known for creating an intimate and safe environment for young developing ladies and showcasing the latest styles with local fashion and trunk shows.
