Le Bal des Créateurs – Art in Progress
A unique and creative space brimming with talent, le Bal des Créateurs is the brain child of Christophe Durand, the founder and director of this creative sphere.
Le Bal des Créateurs, is not just an amazing hairdressers, it is a library, a gallery, a bar, a sanctuary for beauty and relaxation including make-up and massage, and a “pop-up” space for young designers and creative’s to display their work.
Built around a concept unique and new to Geneva, this artistic venture fosters creativity and talent. This ever changing space, is based on the belief that creativity and beauty come from not just one thing alone, fluidity and movement are key to the feel of le Bal des Créateurs and to the creative process (the best person to speak to about this exciting new concept in it’s entirety is Christophe himself, so please pop in and see the store for yourself). The salon and store are ever changing and nothing is “fixed” everything can be moved and changed depending on the artist or designer on showcase.
It is not only the physical space that makes le Bal des Créateurs fabulous, it is also the supremely talented and friendly staff. Each team member is an expert in their field so you know you will be in safe hands, and having just had my haircut at le Bal des Créateurs myself, I can vouch for that.
Le Bal des Créateurs have plans to collaborate with HEAD (Haute école d’art et de design) Genève. So it will be the best place to pick up an unique piece from an up and coming designer, but Les Bal des Creatures is not only for fashion designers, there is an ever changing art gallery decorating the walls.
The current display showcases the designers Gustavolins, Peachoo+Krejberg and Sandrine Philippe, check out www.lepubdescreateurs.com for more information.
This is a place you really have to experience and see for yourself! So if you are looking for a new and fabulous haircut, or just to see some of the local Geneva talent, do not hesitate to go to le Bal des Créateurs.
