The Passion that Ignites Loكal.
The definition of local signifies something related to a particular region, and the MENA region is the focus behind Loكal. Set in Oliveto Bahrain, a stunning venue and restaurant, The Lokal Pop Up Shop is the trendiest, most exclusive and edgiest event on the island. The Lokal Pop Up Shop reaches out to locally sourced, inspired, and talented designers to engage and sell directly in a stunning ‘locale.’
Lokal aspires to promote and invest in native designers, for their exceptional and distinctive creations must be exposed and cultivated. The Lokal Pop Up Shop reveals how much style and creativity exists in the region.
The vibe is unique at Lokal, because of the variety of brands presented, as well as the ambiance created. In its fourth year, with two events a year, they are planning on having the next exhibition in Al Khobar; the founder’s hometown.
Lokal applauds the rising Middle Eastern and North African designers highlighted in the fashion world nowadays, and hopes to shed more light on them. Eventually, Lokal would like to focus on fair trade fashion designers who are committed to creating clothing in an ethical manner.
The goal they want to achieve is to have each piece of every collection to represent the hard work of talented men and women, working to empower and improve the livelihood of their families and communities.
“Once the whole idea of supporting anything that is local catches on, Lokal followers will realize the amazing talent we have on this side of the earth,” shared Leila Al Habbal, founder of Lokal.
