Turkish clothing company LC Waikiki opened its first store in Indonesia in March this year. Located in the Gandaria City Mall in Jakarta, the store is its first in the Asia-Pacific region.
The opening was hosted by the LC Waikiki Sub Saharan Africa and Asia operations director İlker Hacıoğlu and LC Waikiki regional manager Ozan Baş. Turkish actor and child star from the TV series, Elif, Emre Kıvılcım and Isabella Damla were also present.
This move comes shortly after the opening of their first store in Kenya. As part of its growth strategy, LC Waikiki opened their first store in Sub-Saharan Africa at the Two Rivers Mall in Nairobi. The entry into the Kenyan market is seen as a step towards increasing its footprint in Africa, with the store in Nairobi being the main launch pad.
LC Waikiki, maker of ready-to-wear fashion, currently has more than 750 stores and 35.000 employees in 37 countries in South-east Asia, Europe, Central Asia, the Middle East and Africa. Its journey started in France in 1988, and continued as a Turkish brand after 1997.
