Black Truffle in Broadway Market, Hackney and its sister
outlet in Warren Street, Fitzrovia make the grade as the top
boutiques to visit in London.
Passionate about fashion and shoes in particular Melissa
Needham and David Capon (the people behind these innovative
shops) are true experts when it comes to finding the ideal,
sought-after, unique shoes and accessories as their numerous
customers can attest. They equally made a strong impression
in the fashion industry by receiving the illustrious 2009
Drapers Footwear Awards for best shop and being voted Time
Out Best Shoe Store in London in 2007.
First established in January 2003 as an independent shoe
store in Broadway Market, Hackney, London, Black Truffle was
an instant success which lead to the opening of a second
shop in the heart of Fitzrovia, London in 2006. The
company's success is equally due to its outstanding
customers service and its strong ethos, offering a range of
women's shoes and accessories that are not widely available
elsewhere (in fact many of the brands sold such as Jeff,
Vialis, Blancs Manteaux, Just In Case

effortlessly strike the perfect balance between original
styling, practical wearability, quality of materials and
value for money.
In addition the Warren Street branch also houses the
Prescott & Mackay School of Fashion and Accessory Design
which was established in 1997 by Melissa Needham and offers
short courses in shoemaking and accessory design, attended
by students from around the world.
launched a transactional website
offering its exquisite range of shoes, women's wear, small
leather goods, accessories, jewellery, gifts and homeware to
customers for purchase on-line.
In these rather economically challenging times, Black
Truffle has enjoyed a consistent growth in trading which
lead to the relocation of the Broadway Market branch to a
much more spacious premises over 3 floors at 4 Broadway
Market, London E8 in January this year.
Look out for promotional late nights leading to Christmas.
