A New Direction for a New Year



Welcome to the new Petra Karthaus blog. In the past, we’ve used this space to 
share pictures of our new lines and let customers know of any upcoming sales. We’ll still be doing that, but we’ve moved those kinds of announcements over to our social media channels: 
    
  • We’ve just launched an Instagram page Instagram where we’ll regularly be showcasing our lines, many of which are exclusive to our store.
  • And you can follow us on Facebook where you can find great pictures, store info and occasional contests. 


As for the blog, we’ll be using it to give you an inside look at what it takes to collect and curate the looks that make Petra Karthaus what it is, and why many  of our customers have been with us for over 25 years.

We find that we have these conversations fairly regularly. People come in to look around and make their way to the lounge in the back of the store where we answer their questions about everything from what a buying trip to Europe is like to how we choose which designers to showcase. It’s that extra attention that first-time visitors and long-time clients appreciate, and on this blog, our goal is to recreate that.

We’re just putting the finishing touches on our upcoming trip to Europe to get ready for fall/winter 2016, which we’ll be sharing highlights of in our next post. We’ll tell you about the shows we attend and any surprises we find along the way.

In the meantime, do come by for a visit to see what we have in stock for spring 2016. Below are a few of our favourites. And don't forget to check out the feature piece on the Manulife Centre blog about “The Heist,” the latest piece of art hanging in the store.


Until next time!
