The Creators' Village was designed to support young Lyonnais stylists and new designers. Its illustrious sponsors include Serge Bensimon, Jérôme Lhuillier, and Chantal Thomass, among others. Every year, the Talents de Mode contest rewards one of these future greats.
The Village is located in Passage Thiaffait, an old traboule (passageway) at the bottom of the slopes of Croix-Rousse that has been totally renovated and transformed into shops and boutiques. A sort of business incubator, the space welcomes and accompanies these young creators for the time it takes them to get started. The brands change every two to three years, which allows them to discover new local brands made in Lyon. In total, around fifty designers exhibit at the Village. The only permanent shop, at the entrance of the passage on the Rue Leynaud side, is VDC/B, a concept store that presents the collections of the designers of the moment. It sells unique pieces, all of which were manufactured in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region: from clothes and accessories to jewellery, ornaments, decorations and more… capsule collections are renewed monthly.
