Village des Créateurs

In this charming passage at the bottom of the Croix-Rousse hill (with the walk up or down being well worth a detour), young up-and-coming creators from Lyon can be found flourishing in this creative business incubator. Here, they benefit from subsidized rent for workshops or boutiques and have the possibility to exhibit their creations, generally for the time necessary to successfully launch their business. For the creators, the idea is original and stimulating and for the public, it offers the opportunity to discover emerging or newly established brands, as well as a mix of clothing, accessories, décor and more.

The “VDC” also has its own boutique, the VDC|B, which was setup several years ago at the entranceway to the Passage. Here you are sure to find something to please you or someone special, even when some of the boutiques are closed. Even better still, for the last two years the Village has also opened a popup store during December especially for Christmas! So make a note in your diary!

Collector's original visuals and voice have made it a big hit in Lyon. It offers locals a different view of their city: more modern, more urban, and even a little offbeat. In just a few years, this guide has become the repertoire of “places to be”. It opens doors to somewhat secret worlds – just the way we like them in Lyon. The cover image is evidence enough, featuring the world of Nathalie Rives, bursting with personality, and her gallery.

Camille

The first thing you notice about Camille when you see her in the morning is her ready smile. Then you rapidly realise that although she looks very gentle, she is also amazingly efficient and insatiably curious. The very essence of a compulsive tester: nothing escapes her watchful eye. Not a single venue, festival or wardrobe sale, especially those that take place in her own neck of the woods on the slopes! You may even come across her and her little 4-year old, who accompanies her on most of her exploratory journeys!
