I like my money right where I can see it…hanging in my closet.

Carrie Bradshaw Shopping NYC

Carrie Bradshaw, New York City and shopping; as harmonious a trio as Barry, Robin and Maurice. For a generation of women who drooled over the fashion on display in Sex In The City, there will never be anywhere as exciting as NYC for shopping. As Carrie so often displayed in one fabulous outfit; there is something here for every one. From high end fashion to vintage thrift and everything in between.However, for those of us who don’t have Carrie’s knowledge of her beloved home town it can be pretty daunting. Why not take away all the stress and take a Shop Gotham tour? Led by Manhattanite shopping experts with fantastic insider knowledge.

Take the Garment Centre “Insider” Shopping Tour and you will be escorted to six, appointment-only, designer showrooms that are not accessible to the public. You will have the opportunity to meet a designer or two in their showroom and learn interesting titbits about the fashion industry from both emerging and household names.

You shop exactly where department & boutique store buyers, as well as fashion editors do. Best of all, you will have access to wholesale prices, just like them. Shopping is for current season items at an incredible 50-70% below retail!

Carrie would have LOVED this!

If that isn’t enough we recommend a double whammy; book the Soho and Nolita tour as well. Here you will visit a special selection of independent boutiques that reveal hidden gems ranging from trendy luxury to chic bargains. Your fashion-savvy guide will update you on current season trends and assist with wardrobe styling. Several shops will extend exclusive store discounts, which are usable all day so no rush to make a purchase during the tour.Artists and Fleas

Stilettos to the Wayside, Hello Comfort!

June 16th, 2014
Ladies, we are loving the trend of comfortable footwear more than ever right now. Seriously, it is the best thing that could have happened within the cycle of recent fashion. From pointy flats and high top sneaks to oxfords, slip ons and printed espadrilles..it’s all about the FLATS! Effortlessly chic, simple and easy to wear.
This is good news to those aiming to look stylish on their visit to New York, because as we all know, New York=lots of walking. Join any of our Shop Gotham tours- whether it be 3 hours of shopping in private designer wholesale showrooms in the Garment District or 2 1/2 hours of shopping in Soho/Nolita within downtown Manhattan-we deliver the ultimate shopping “experience” to all of our clients and tours are conducted entirely on foot! Looking fashionable doesn’t have to kill your feet; dress comfortable and fashion forward for your trip to NYC. Summertime tip- slip on a printed dress and sneakers-you’re good to go!

Summer Scarves, Boho Chic

June 4th, 2014

The weather is starting to warm up…finally!!…and summer is on it’s way. One of our favorite trends, year-round, but especially in the summer, are scarves. There are so many fabulous ways to rock a scarf besides around your neck. For an ultra chic boho look, try tying a bright scarf around your head and tying it underneath. Like this! Big shades also encouraged. It’s an effortless look and when used as a hair wrap you don’t even have to do your hair that morning.

A scarf can also double as a beach wrap in the summertime. Throw one in your tote and use as a cover up at the beach or wrap it around you when the sun sets. Summer scarf fabrics that work best are: silk, linen, cotton or a very thin cashmere. Try accenting bright prints over neutral tops-keep it simple.

Although the summer temps tend to sky rocket during summer in the city, the nights can always get cool..and so can the air conditioners!! If you are coming to New York City to visit make sure to pack a summer scarf. It is small enough to throw in your bag and you never know when you will need it. If you do not already own this summer essential, purchase a few on one our weekly wholesale shopping programs!


One of the most popular showroom visits on the Garment Center tour is to a designer showroom which creates gorgeous custom dyed scarves and wraps. Not only do Shop Gotham Garment Center tours grant you access into the private world of designer fashion but they also offer the most remarkable deals on current fashion that exists in NYC.
