    Student Group Program: Fashion and Performance

    February 12th, 2014

    Today in the circle of Broadway and Film, costumes are the epicenter of excitement and compelling delight. Where does the process begin? What elements are needed? This program showcases the wardrobing process, taking students both behind- the-scenes to design studios and to private industry-only shops for an enlightening costume production overview that can only be found in NYC.
    As the newest addition to our specialty group programs, the Costume and Theater Design experience commences in March and can be booked year-round. Let us take you and your students on an educational experience into the costume design, theater and performance realms of New York City. Our guides, designers and industry experts will explain the entire costuming process from initial concept to concluding stage/film.

    Student Group Shopping Tours are so much fun!

    November 25th, 2013
    A custom shopping program took place this past Saturday in Soho. The Student Group Tour consisted of 500 students from over the world. This 4 hour tour commenced in the West Village, the historical NYC hub for music and home to the rock/folk movement of the 60’s and 70’s. Our students learned about historical landmarks, cast iron architecture, historical music venues, and major musicians and artists of that time. This tour also included a meet and greet with fashion and jewelry designers, exclusive shopping discounts at our partner stores in SoHo, as well as the exploration of the beautiful and unique Soho/Nolita neighborhoods.
    If you are looking for something fun and educational to do for your students visiting NYC, let us customize a shopping tour for your student group! Rest assured, you will enjoy it too!


    NYC Merchandisers on a Private Tour

    October 7th, 2013

    Shop Gotham hosts corporate group shopping tours in addition to our other shopping services. In the fashion world (and several others), it is vital to progress with what is new and interesting in retail in order to succeed. Our private industry tours allow corporate members to do precisely that. Just last week, we hosted a group from a high end fashion company (whom we must keep annonymous). Merchandisers from this worldwide corporation spent the afternoon alongside our knowledgable guides and had an educational shopping experience tailored specifically to their companies business needs. This is a fun and educational alternative for entertaining corporate groups that are visiting NYC.
