Local Shop: La Vie in Broadway Market

If you are looking for the unusual and the original in ladies fashion - why don't you head down to La Vie in Hackney's Broadway Market.

This is a small and unique ladies fashion boutique settled in the heart of Broadway Market - instantly recognisable by the green décor outside and the lovely sign of the elegant woman. Stepping inside the shop you will be forgiven for thinking you have gone into a shopping / bargain hunting paradise - lots to see and browse through. This shop is especially good for accessories - you will find something here that will make your outfit special. Only a short distance from Bethnal Green tube.

I spoke to Christiane from La Vie to find out her views on the area and what's new in her shop...

What is everyone looking for at the moment within your shop?
Everyone comes in looking for something different! Something with a twist!

Where is the best place to go on a Sunday afternoon?
Here of course! Broadway Market is the best place to come in Hackney and Bethnal Green. Apart from that maybe the flower market… (Columbia Road Flower Market)

What is the best buy in your shop? Describe and how much?
It would be our accessories and bags - especially the button bags that I make myself. They are made out of fabric and cost from £14.99

Describe the last customers that have been in and what did they buy?
The very last customer? She bought a bag - a mirrored bag this time!

When is the best place to go on a night out?
That's a tricky one - hmm… It would have been The Hackney Empire before it closed down - well - being refurbished. Taking a long time though!

What is your favourite view where you live?
It would be the view over the Regents Canal - this is very nice.
