A Day in the Life of a NYC Shopping Tour

michael kaye designWhile escorting a student group recently from Canada on a Shop Gotham Garment Center student tour program, we were invited into the showroom of Michael Kaye, hot formal-wear designer (Michael Kaye Couture), who also happens to be from the groups’s same home town of Alberta.  Mr. Kaye received  The Fashion Group International’s 2004 RISING STAR AWARD (the same given to Zac Posen – not bad). He Kaye delighted the group with stories of the industry. What a thrill it was for these young fashion aspirants. You never know what can happen to you in NYC! www.shopgotham.com
