“Soho tour was the highlight of our Trip!”

April 20th, 2015
As a small and local New York business, Shop Gotham truly values feedback from our guests. A very special thank you to Harriet from the UK for sharing her Soho and Nolita Shopping Tour experience on TripAdvisor and giving us a 5 Star Review. We hope to shop with you next time you visit NYC!

Reviewed April 3, 2015

“Guide was FABULOUS! Even with 6 other guests along, she Catered to our interests and was very knowledgeable about the area. We were given a great map and it was suggested we use it to mark places we wanted to return to, which turned out to be an excellent tip. A couple of English stores have just arrived to NYC and we especially enjoyed those. The time goes very fast, so plan to stick around after and make time to go back to the street vendor selling one of kind, beautiful things on Prince and Mulberry. Great program.”

Sweater Weather

October 14th, 2014

Sweaters are a huge trend this season, major score!

All pros, no cons:
1. They are the most comfortable thing on the planet
2. Fashionable item that will actually keep you warm
3. Easy to layer-stick to basic colors and neutral shades

Not even close to a sweater dress, this fitted long length number with side slits is a must have from Zara’s fall collection! Throw it over anything and call it a day.

Layering inspiration-keep it simple and stick to similar hues/colors within your layers. Always remember to balance a big sweater with a slim bottom silhouettes (like a skinny jean).

Turtleneck sweater-we give it the go ahead as long is it has some variation from the ones you used to wear skiing. For example, the cowl neckline adds a chic element in addition to layering over a floral dress.

Oversized knits-the cardigan with bulk, the thick sweater that subs as a jacket. This look is totally in right now, and totally doable on all women. Give your leather jacket a day of rest and enjoy the fall weather while you can in a chunky knit!

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. View our tour schedule and plan a girls day out today.
