Seek New York LLC is pleased to announce a series of affordable public New York Garment District tours for fall 2012.
While Seek prides itself on creating custom New York shopping tours, the company also realizes that the luxury of a private tour might not be an option for students, solo travelers, and those visiting New York City on a budget. Seek’s Public Garment District tours were designed with these customers in mind.
During a three-hour walking tour, participants will explore the beginnings of New York City’s garment and retail industries, visit locations featured on popular fashion-focused TV shows, and see the Fashion Walk of Fame. They will also enjoy ample shopping time at the fabric, trim, bead, leather, and notions stores frequented by costume designers and fashion industry professionals.
The itinerary for this public tour of the NYC fashion district was created by combining the most highly requested locations from Seek’s popular private Garment District tour. Ideal for fashion design and merchandising students, aspiring designers and stylists, home seamstresses, and anyone with an interest in the history of the garment industry, Seek’s Garment District Tour is led by a licensed NYC Sightseeing Guide and professional designer who has years of experience utilizing the neighborhood’s many resources for theatre and television projects.
Public tours are offered on select Thursdays at 10:00 AM, at a cost of $36/person.Tours may be booked online by visiting www.seeknewyorktours.com/public_tours/ and selecting from a list of available dates. Early booking is recommended as tours are capped at ten (10) people to guarantee a personal experience for each guest.
