The ‘Garment District’  SunTimes News

I have always wondered what it was like behind the scenes of a designer’s showroom in the heart of the Garment District in New York City and what it would be like to actually shop there. In meeting Pilar, Personal Shopper/Stylist on Trip Advisor, I thought I would give her a call to find out what privileges her clients receive. We got to visit “Not open to the Public” showrooms in the heart of the Garment District of NYC. These are the same showrooms that sell to department stores across the country. The average retail markup starts at 2.2 times the wholesale price, but when shopping with Pilar in the showrooms, we were able to pay less than half of these crazy retail prices. Pilar is a sweetheart and made sure every shopper’s needs were met. This is definitely a unique and fun way to shop in the Big Apple. Pilar truly cares about her clients looking and feeling fabulous. She encourages everyone to relax, take their time, ask the designers questions, try on one of a kind clothing and most importantly have fun with your new girlfriends!
