A new space and a new way of displaying our fabrics. A more personal and direct touch but with the same willingness. From now on and until we present our official new shop, you can find us in our Pop-Up Store, in Pau Claris 162, 2nd floor. We are anxious for you to come and see it.

Furthermore, we have more opportunities and surprises planned for our customers.   You can benefit from huge savings on our current season fabrics which we are selling at cost price, aswell as a large range of matching accessories.

The new opening hours are as follows;

Monday to Friday: from 10am to 6pm 
Saturdays: from 10am to 2pm

This new change of space brings with it a change in décor and ambience and we are delighted with the results. We hope that when you see it, you too will be surprised and it is to your liking.

If you have not had a chance to come and see us yet, we will share with you a few photos of the new Gratacós Pop-Up Store.

Thank you for these 75 years in Paseo de Gracia

A week has passed since we spent our last night in Paseo de Gracia. An unforgettable night in which we said our farewell to 75 years in this historical shop. This time has been full of good moments, not only for us but also for many people who have passed by here.

We wanted our farewell to be a happy one and full of little details, that’s why we coincided it with The Shopping Night Barcelona. A moment in which everyone could pay tribute with us to Paseo de Gracia and everything that our paths have led to over the years and our history.

Sita Murt: we’ve lost a Fashion icon

Intelligent, a fighter, creative, strong, entrepreneur and a unique woman. Sita Murt has left us. Today the fashion world and all those who cared about her both on a professional and personal level must say goodbye to a great woman who gave it all for what she believed in and was one of the major exponents for “Made in Spain”.

Sita-Murt

Her work has always been driven by passion and creativity that she put into each and every one of her projects, in everything she did and this is what made her rise to the top.

In Gratacós we were lucky enough to work with Sita, to share her time, space, fabrics and ideas which were materialized into unique designs. In design that only she could do.

We thank her for the legacy she has left behind, for being who she was, for her willingness, vitality, passion and everything she did for the Catalan fashion world. You will continue to be a role model for young entrepreneurs who are embarking on their careers.

Gratacós can only say thank you to you, R.I.P

Hitchcock Premiere at The Shopping Night Barcelona

Next Thursday night, 4th December, Paseo De Gracia in Barcelona will become a mirror image of the golden years of Hollywood. To celebrate Shopping Night Barcelona, the street will be converted into a huge cinema set that pays tribute to the big stars of the era. In line with the theme, we have prepared a special party in our shop, with unique shop windows that immerse visitors into an authentic Hitchcock premiere.

Hitchcock_gratacos_1

In Gratacós, we have been preparing the night with great care. For this event, we will pay tribute to Edith Head, designer for Paramount and costume creator of the most important Alfred Hitchcock films. Each shop window will represent a famous Hitchcock film and will exhibit a moulage with the dresses from the film Vértigo, the spectacular skirt seen in the film Rear Window and the soft dress worn by Tippi Hedren in The Birds.

Hitchcock_gratacos_3

Furthermore, inside the shop we will celebrate an authentic party set in the era with waiters and hostesses dressed in the iconic fashions of the Hitchcock films. A pianobar will provide atmosphere with background music and we will toast with Cava Juvé&Camps.

All those who attend can enjoy a 10% discount on all articles in the shop and will also participate in a draw for a scarf designed exclusively for the occasion, inspired in the Shopping Night Barcelona and Hitchcock.

We have everything ready for our last big night in Paseo de Gracia. This is why we want this party to be extra special and the best in the last 5 years since Shopping Night began.

We hope to see you there.

The Gratacós shop is moving

Times of change are upon us. A time to embark on a new adventure and bet it all on a new space adapted to the textile sector in the 21st Century. This is why we have taken a step forward and after 75 years in Paseo de Gracia 110, we are moving to a new and different space that fits the needs of our current customers much better and also our needs as a textile company.

We have spent many wonderful years in this historical place in Barcelona, which has felt like a home and has left us many unforgettable moments. Our objective now is to create a much warmer and welcoming space, but offer the same personalized assistance to each and every one our customers.

This new location in Barcelona will merge wholesale and retail trade, expositions, workshops and welcome new talents all in one Fashion Space.   An opportunity not only for us, but also for many other people and artists dedicated to the fashion industry doing what we most like; giving shape to our fabrics.

Premiere Vision Shanghai 2014

A few days ago we were at the Premiere Vison Shanghai fair exhibiting the new Gratacós designs and fabrics for the upcoming season. It has been a positive experience and we are back with a good feeling about it.

premiere-vision

The Shanghai fair is one of the most important fairs for us when it comes to international business. It is a means of entry into China and it helps us be present in one of the most emerging countries of the moment.

An opportunity to continue opening doors to a very important market in which fashion and design is becoming consolidated day by day. And we want to continue being present there.

premiere-vision-1

Shanghai is a vibrant city, full of curiosities and very diverse people who offer us different visions and inspire us to continue developing our designs and offer new things to the fashion market.

In Gratacós we always like to hold on to the good things of every fair and place we visit. This is why we hope to continue travelling a lot more.

We will leave you with some images of our visit to Shanghai.
