You’re going to eat! and eat well! As for that one you already know. There will be italian food, sandwiches, grills, khebabs, and the usual ghanaian delights. List of specific vendors will go up on our fb events page.
Lokko House has always felt very strongly about promoting and showcasing the best of local creativity. We’ve always looked out for the fresh and cutting edge, those that see things in their own way, making waves and daring change. We like to let you meet them too. To have a first-hand experience of what they’re about. That’s the Lokko Market. Vendors will be grouped into 3 batches; MORNING, AFTERNOON AND EVENING. There will be 10 tables per slot so a total of 30 vendors during the course of the day. You can always catch the rest in the shop!

The Lokko Rebrand
We plan on celebrating in style for the rest of the year with you. Kicking-off the ‘We are 10’ celebrations is the exciting rebrand of Lokko’08 to Lokko House which we celebrated with our family of suppliers… psst, pictures here.
The new name intends to refresh the Lokko brand and its values; encapsulating our bigger, better and bolder goals for the coming year.
As part of a more holistic update to our brand, we will also be creating a new website, installing new signage at our shop (so you won’t want to beat us up anymore!) and updating our communications – including a fancy fresh newsletter format to come.
Next month, you’ll see a range of additions including a blog post link, promotions and sales, new product arrivals and any new brands joining the Lokko family.
What does the re-branding mean?
We’re putting some order to the past 10 years and creating some clarity for you. Lokko House is now the name of the parent company to four sub-brands you’re already familiar with. For those who are new, this is a great way to begin your journey with us. Check out each of them below.
The Lokko House Store
Formerly known as Lokko’08, this is the first and number one Urban Concept Store in Accra. Woven into the fabric of Accra since 2008, Lokko House has become a pilgrimage site for West African fashion and urban culture – and has reinvented the meaning of retail in Ghana since its existence.
Coming up, we’ve got a host of surprises for you, making our store the place to shop and chill.
Elle Lokko | tropics & modern |
Accra’s first Women’s Concept Store, Elle Lokko is a truly ‘Tropics and Modern’ experience. Think Fashion, Body Care, Art, Design, Events and Culture.
Elle Lokko is the place to shop for exclusive, unrivalled African Design and Creativity and our regular events ensure we keep you entertained our way.

Lokko House is 10!
As May is now almost over, we are shifting into sixth gear in preparation for monthly celebrations – from Instagram feature stories and weekly DJ sessions to beach parties! Why?
Well this year Lokko House turns 10 years old (on December 20th to be exact). This is a huge milestone not only for us, but also for Elle Lokko’s parent company, our cherished suppliers and partners, our clients and all who have helped us reach this point. So thank you all for your patronage, support and collaboration to date – and cheers to another 10 years together!
