Imani did a great job on explaining the whole process from design to production. My daughter Isabella loved it and talks about it a lot still! Worth the price in my book! Imani is a great people person that packs a lot into a little time all while not rushing the content.

So worth the time and money... this was an amazing educational tour of the Garment District and fashion design from fabrics to patterns, sparkles to buttons, history to fabrication. Guide was super knowledgeable and made us feel like our own private consultant. Excellent, excellent, excellent - not to be missed for anyone interested in fashion!

Imani was absolutely amazing. I am starting a new line and had no idea where how to approach production. Imani arranged one on one meetings with vendors to help me navigate my way around the process. She was super knowledgeable and really helpful. Thank you Imani!

The various tour options are perfect for those that are interested in getting into the fashion industry, for those that are interested in learning more about the resources available in New York, and for shopping! The tour provides a comprehensive overview of the design process, and is sprinkled with valuable pieces of information and vendors along the way.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
