Do you belong to a quilting guild, sewing circle, or other sewing-related organization? For your next group outing, consider scheduling a guided walking tour of the New York City Garment District. The perfect tour for anyone who loves sewing, fashion, and fabrics!
Garment District tours include famous design schools, fashion landmarks (Bryant Park, Fashion Walk of Fame), Project Runway locations, and brief stops at a few of the popular fabric and trim stores utilized by industry professionals. Along the way, participants will learn about the history of the garment industry in NYC, explore the evolution of great department stores like Lord & Taylor and Macy’s Herald Square, and hear about recent efforts to save the Garment Center in New York. All tours are led by professional New York City costume and fashion designers who are also fully licensed NYC guides.
A traditional Garment District tour contains a mix of history and sightseeing, with a few minutes for browsing in several fabric and trim shops along the way. For groups who’d prefer a more in-depth fabric shopping experience, private tours can also be designed to focus specifically on shopping, rather than history and sightseeing, and can be tailored to specific types of crafting, sewing, or quilting projects. For private groups, fabric showroom and factory visits can also be arranged upon request. Pending availability, a sample sale or fashion-related exhibit or event may also be included.
All of Seek’s new York Garment District tour participants enjoy exclusive discounts at neighborhood fabric stores, trim stores, restaurants, and coffee shops. Recent Garment District discounts have included Sil Thread, New York Elegant Fabrics, and Daytona Trimming.
Looking for a fun outing for a school field trip, fashion club, camp, or Girl Scout troop? One- and two-hour educational tours of the Garment District are also available, and are designed for a younger audience. Appropriate for ages 8 and above.
Large Group Pricing:
Designed for groups of ten or more participants. A base rate of $350 covers the first ten members of your group; additional people may be added at the rate of $20 per person. Parties of 15 or more will be divided into two smaller tour groups, to ensure that everyone is able to see and hear the guide.
