Add a visit to the world's most famous trim store, with your expert guide to lead the way, and this is the perfect morning tour for fashionistas, "better clothing" bargain hunters, and the fashion curious.

The best kept secret deals on fashion await with privileged access to six wholesale showrooms--not open to the general public--and hidden sample sales for the latest trends. No last season leftovers, snag deals on women’s designer and “better wear” fashions anywhere from 50-80% below retail. You might even catch a designer at work in their inner sanctum.

Amid all the designer deals and bargains, your shopping expert will share the history of the area, point out key landmarks in the area such as M and J Trimmings, one of the world's most famous trim stores, featured in the New York Times and Martha Stewart Living Magazine and tell you where to find Mood Fabrics, best known for being "the" place to buy fabric on the hot reality show Project Runway.

Don't let the bargain-hunting end with the tour. You'll receive a list of other notable sales of the day for an independent shopping experience. You're an industry insider now!

Small-group tour is limited to 12 persons for a more personalized experience. Participants must be 18 years of age or older.

    Tour was fun, informative, and added to my and my grandaughters closets. Keve was great guide on tour and as native New Yorker knowledgeable about the city. Highlight was meeting designer Elizabeth Gilette who graciously shared her love of fabric and beautifully designed scarves.

    We were a large group but John kept things lively. We saw a lot and his stories and anecdotes made the tour a great experience. Clearly John knows his stuff--and his joy of tourguiding came through clearly on a brisk but sunny day.
