Happy Birthday Petit Bazaar!
If you’re looking for a little bit of French chic for your kids in Hong Kong then Petit Bazaar should always be at the top of your list! Having just celebrated its 3rd birthday in Hong Kong, and with 3 shops on HK Island, plus an online store this is more than proof that founder (and former That Mama!), Narguess Sousi, knew what she was doing when she decided to bring the stylish children’s toys, fashion and décor to Hong Kong that she missed so much from France.
To celebrate its 3rd anniversary Petit Bazaar hosted a fashion show and VIP sale… and Mini Goddess was very pleased to make VIP status, and the FROW naturellement… the only fashion faux pas being the exploding, but delicious, crème puff from 126 Grammes! Thankfully Sassy Mama Ed Kate was in attendance to avert near disaster and mop me up… phew! And if you’re yet to sample the delightful and delectable crème puffs from 126 Grammes, get yourself down to their shop on Aberdeen St immediatement… you’ll be as happy as a pig in muck!
Anyway, enough of the puff, and back to the crème de la crème of kid’s fashion in Hong Kong… here are some of our favourite looks from the catwalk- très cool, we’re sure you’ll agree.
