Not To Miss This December in NYC

December 8th, 2014
Looking for things to do in NYC this December? Check out our insider “NYC Musts” from your local New Yorkers:
  • Knock out your Christmas and Holiday shopping in one day on a Garment Center Tour. Purchase chic accessories, handbags, jewelry, dresses, coats, scarves, fur-gifts for the whole family at wholesale-only prices! And of course, a little self-gifting is okay too!
  • Stop by Bryant Park to check out the outdoor Holiday Vendors that surround the BP Ice Skating Rink. Burn some calories, take a spin on the ice, check out the fabulous BP Christmas tree and then grab a cappuccino and people watch.
  • The Radio City Christmas Spectacular, as always, is a must do if you’ve never seen it! Each year the music, costumes and talented Rockettes & performers grow more exquisite!
  • Take a shopping break and stroll Holiday Under the Stars, an state-of-the-art holiday light display at the Time Warner Center in Columbus Circle. The spectacle features a dozen 14-foot LED stars that do a colorful “dance,” flashing more than 16.7 million color mixes in time to classic yuletide tunes.

  • Museum at FIT opens a new exhibit exploring the Counterfeit Industry and how it affects the fashion world, Faking It. “Fashion should slip out of your hands. The very idea of protecting the seasonal arts is childish. One should not bother to protect that which dies the minute it is born.” Coco Chanel
  • See New Year’s Times Square Ball Drop on December 31st. Ring in the New Year of 2016 in the heart of New York City, Times Square! Or stream it live here.

    Christmas Season/Hanukkah season sample sales will be in the works by mid October/early November. This years sample sale “season” (the prime time for Holiday shopping) commences with designers such as: Elizabeth and James, Loro Piana, DKNY, Phillip Lim, Escada, Scoop, Alexander McQueen and the ever famous Hanky Panky yearly sale. In other words, the Garment District is about to be in full bloom!

    Designers sales for November are still pending but we will be sure to update you as soon as we hear what is coming up!

    In addition to the well known designer realm of sample sales offered on our Garment Center Tours, all of our partner designer showrooms that are visited on a tour are the real highlight. Currently selling their Fall/Winter 2014 collections exclusively to our shoppers at wholesale price now!

    Purchase tailored fashion apparel, dresses and outerwear, fabulous furs (real and FO), accessories and jewelry that is made for private label brands (shh we can’t tell you who!) and quality leather handbags entirely on trend (totes and purses for every style). All for less than a third of what you would find in a department or retail store.

    Another perk-you won’t have to wait in lines or deal with any chaos of traditional Holiday Shopping! Our tours max at 12 guests and our tour guides are extremely personable and accommodating. Get the chance to talk one on one with designers and showroom sales reps that can teach you about the collections, make personal recommendations and help you to select the “perfect gift”.

    Find out why all the ladies love us and can’t wait to shop wholesale with us each time they visit NYC! Join a shopping tour this Fall 2014 and shop with Shop Gotham, exclusively wholesale.
