Overview
Shop like an Industry Insider in the Garment District, the epicenter of Women's Fashion in New York City on this 3-hour guided walking/shopping program. Each Group has the opportunity to Visit and Shops in 5 Private Designer Wholesale Showrooms that are Not accessible to the public. Here you will be afforded the same price-points as store buyers, 30- 70% off retail for current season on-trend items. There is more: Meet a Designer or two, see and learn a bit about this legendary area and industry, and depart with a list of the hot Sample Sales around town for independent post-tour shopping for this season's styles at remarkably reduced prices.
Your itinerary includes a combination of Women's apparel and accessories. The designers are smaller successful and emerging names and this is where the fun begins, as you uncover new brands and items you will be delighted to have in your wardrobe. An "only in NYC experience" by the company who has been creating these VIP programs for 20 years.

Over the course of the tour, you'll visit six wholesale showrooms not open to the public, and enjoy discounts on this season’s apparel and accessories. The guide takes you to meet one or two designers for an exclusive look into how their collections are produced from start to finish. As the tour comes to a close, receive a guide to public sample sales all throughout the city. Use this to extend the day’s shopping trip, or rest your legs in nearby Bryant Park.
