The Village des Créateurs, the label grouping talented creators in the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region, is spreading throughout the city of Lyon. First, in an open-air "Traboule" passageway on the hillsides of Croix Rousse, the Passage Thiaffait hosts the creative lab, bringing together a dozen designer boutiques, a multi-creator concept store and the café-restaurant Le Traboule Kitchen. Additionally, pop-up stores with ephemeral boutiques of designers lasting a few weeks are regularly set up throughout the city centre in various transitional spaces.
Convinced by the strong support shown for local brands - undeniably the creative forces of the region - the Village des Créateurs has chosen to open a new booth on Place Bellecour, in the heart of Lyon, from July to December 2019.
This booth features a selection from talented local creators. Fashion, home decor and design brands, all members of the Village des Créateurs label, locally-based and offering collections thought up and designed in Lyon; made in Auvergne Rhône-Alpes, France and occasionally abroad.
