I scheduled this experience during a trip to New York with my mother, daughter and sister-in-law. It was fabulous! The day we went was my daughter's 21st birthday. We all had a wonderful time with Pilar! She wanted to know all about us--ages, sizes, etc. so that our shopping experience would be special for each one of us. We all... More

We had a wonderful time spending the day shopping with Pilar on our girls weekend get away in NY!! She took us to several local showrooms and even changed her scheduled showroom plans based on learning more about our taste levels. It was so fun to witness behind the scenes action in the garment district and meet with several of... More

When I first laid eyes on Pilar I knew I had made the right choice for my shopping experience. A petite lady that oozed style and sophistication. It was a lifetime dream of mine to shop in New York and I wanted to shop New York designs, not visit another department or flagship store. Pilar did not disappoint she took... More

I recommend this shopping experience 100%. I had sent through some photos of my typical style and Pilar took me to shops that were a perfect match. In addition to buying some perfect pieces, it was a great NYC experience to see the showrooms and meet local designers in person. My boyfriend (who hates shopping) came along for the afternoon...

My husband gave me a shopping trip with Pilar while we were in New York for our anniversary. I was so excited for the day to come when I would get to shop in the Big City. Let me tell you, that I was delighted with the places this true New York fashionista picked for me. I think we actually... More

My daughter, sister, and I have shopped with Pilar four or five times. It is hands-down our favorite. We recently unexpectedly found ourselves in New York for just a day. My daughter needed a ball gown. It was too late to book the tour with Pilar, because she already had clients. But it was still Pilar to the rescue! Within... More

My wife and 16 year old daughter spent time with Pilar on a shopping excursion. They had an amazing afternoon!! Pilar took the time to understand their shopping interests and selected the best options for each. We will definitely use Pilar's services again - when it's prom time.

We had an amazing day in New York shopping with Pillar. We had emailed ahead with our design style and Pillar was able to easily assess us further at our first stop and went out of her way to take us to a variety of designer's showrooms and wholesalers. Prices were fantastic including samples at bargain prices and designers at... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood 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 paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit 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.
