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!


Sample NYC Shopping Tour Itinerary – Student Group

July 10th, 2010

We recently hosted a group of students from a graduate fashion program in the southern US, for an educational/shopping tour of NYC.  Like most school programs, the students were “rich on conception”, but “low on reality”, so their visit to the Garment Center was an eye-opener and probably more valuable than many of those expensive credits. Their visit included: Meeting a Designer in her showroom and hearing her speak honestly about her challenges, including such things as getting into new stores, getting paid, being on top of trends and so much more. This was followed by a visit to a rare existing factory, the world’s largest trim store, an uber famous fabric store, a Broadway costume shop and Shopping in both a Wholesale Showroom and a Sample Sales.    

NYC is the center of it all. If you would like information on bringing your students to experience this, please visit: www.shopgotham.com or email: info@shopgotham.com
