Luxury brands are flocking to Vancouver. In the last few years, high end fashion companies like Versace, Prada and Dior have opened beautiful boutiques on Alberni Street, and the surrounding area.
While Chanel has had a presence in Vancouver for many years, their new boutique located in Holt Renfrew, is currently under construction and set to open early Summer 2016.
Holt Renfrew is going through a major renovation. Plans for the new facilities were revealed at a media event I attended this March. The expansion will include a Holts Cafe, a larger men’s section and shoe department, and a suite for personal shopping. The luxury shopping destination will be 190,000 square feet and include expanded shops for Louis Vuitton, Tiffany, David Yurman, Gucci, Prada, Dior, Tom Ford and Fendi.
Vancouver is an exciting market for luxury companies, and new businesses are opening all the time. Vancouver might not ever be known as a fashion capital, but it’s definitely becoming a luxury shopping destination.
