What To Expect
Banish the boring and shop like an "insider" in the neighborhood that is the epicenter of women's fashion for the US, and also home to NYC's best "deals."
The Garment Center Tour takes you behind-the-scenes shopping in the neighborhood where fashion was born. A combination of Wholesale Showrooms not accessible to the public and hidden Sample Sales - where discounts on CURRENT SEASON women's designer and "better wear" will be from 50-80% below retail.
Opportunity to meet a designer in their inner sanctum, learn some history and see Project Runway and other landmarks.
The perfect off the beaten path tour for fashionista bargain hunters. Shopping is for Women's items only! Sorry Gents! But men are most welcome on the tour to accompany their lady.
