In 2015, having spent some time focussing on the kids, I decided I wanted to get back to work. Having previously worked in retail since leaving school and with a love for Fashion and a passion to deliver a unique customer experience Kathryn by Kathryn Carter was born.
Having initially run the business from home, I opened our boutique in October 2016 and launched online 1 year later. Now hosting VIP parties at the boutique and still attending pop up shops whenever we could.
Then at the start of 2020 the Pandemic hit and through 2020 / 2021 we ran at times during the extended lockdowns and restrictions, solely as an online store which as challenging as that was at the time the positive outcome was that we increased our customer reach immensely and I felt strengthened our community further. Thank you for all your support during this challenging time.
As we entered 2022 I think on reflection this was probably the hardest year to run a boutique in the sense that Covid was out in our communities and creating a-lot of sickness. Causing isolation and cancelled events in the process. We were all exhausted too. So this definitely put a strain on us all.
However travel was back on the table again and we could all see our loved ones overseas which was a big positive. Again a big thank you to everyone that continued to support us during this time.
And here we are in 2023, we are back to hosting events and attending pop ups and aim to provide you with affordable fashion that’s stylish, comfortable and wearable every day !
If you are interested in hosting a VIP event please reach out and we will send you all the details.
We will be hosting events throughout the year and with our specialised Customer Service, we believe we are still Melbourne's most unique boutique!
