Shop like an Industry Insider in the Garment District, the epicenter of fashion in New York City on this 3-hour guided walking tour. Visit and shop in 5 Private Designer Wholesale Showrooms not accessible to the public (to shop at the same price-points as store buyers at 30- 60% off retail). 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 will include a combination of women's apparel and accessories. The designers are smaller successful and emerging names. This is where the fun begins as you uncover new brands and items you will be delighted to have in your wardrobe.

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.
