Behind-the-Scenes of the NYC Fashion Industry

March 28th, 2014







Wholesale shopping is a luxury generally reserved for celebs and editors. But in NYC, where all things are possible, so too is this.

Shop Gotham takes guests Behind-the Scenes to meet designers and glimpse the inner workings of the industry. The apex is the exclusive opportunity to purchase women’s designer current collection apparel & accessories at Wholesale prices.

Programs are Affordable, Fun and Quintessentially New York.

If you need to WOW or just entertain an important visiting group or friend, we invite you to explore a Garment Center shopping program with us (So sorry gents. Shopping is just for women’s items, but feel free to come along and hold the bags!)
