  • Guide points out landmarks you might not have noticed on your own

What to Expect
Meet a guide in Midtown Manhattan near Fashion Avenue, the 10-block strip of Seventh Avenue located in the heart of the Garment District. As you walk through the neighborhood, your guide points out landmarks you might not have noticed on your own, including local fashion scene hangouts, buildings where top designers are creating next season’s styles, and the residence for Project Runway contestants. 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.
