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, while balancing full time work in Finance and attending school at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. However, 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 passion and purpose into a magnificent brand. A full-service boutique, offering fashion-forward styles, bra fitting services, solutions for post-surgery and mastectomy, and luxury concierge.
A trip to Paris is where Nicole merged it all. She found confirmation in the French boutiques and luxury customer service. The unique styles, rich history, and attentive customer service is what she wanted to bring back to the US.
Exploring Paris, enjoying champagne and caviar, Nicole decided to name her store Petit à Petit (little by little in French).
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 contacted her friends in the intimate apparel business to support her vision and applied her education in fashion design, textiles, and construction to select the right garments in a wide array of silhouettes and styles.
Today, Norfolk, Virginia is home to Petit à Petit Lingerie Boutique. Where it is known for curating unique intimate apparel for women and men, with their needs in mind first. Petit à Petit prides itself on having and safe and initmate environment for all.
