My shopping takes you to small private designer showrooms in the heart of Manhattan’s Garment District. The showrooms are the places where buyers from major department stores and boutiques from all over the country come to place their seasonal orders.You will be paying wholesale and below wholesale prices. 50%-80% off crazy retail prices. You will be seeing current season as well as one of a kind samples.I am a professional stylist and personal shopper, and I lead all my groups, (not a hired tour guide ) I honestly want my clients to look and feel fabulous. You will be encouraged to try things on and maybe to step out of your style box just a bit. There is no pressure to buy anything you dont Love.I want the shopping to be all about you, and select available showrooms that fit your style, needs and budget.So much fun, and the saving are real. My fee is based on the number of women shopping. Monday-Friday Morning or Afternoons available. Happy to answer all your questions via email. « less

This shopping experience was absolutely wonderful! As other reviewers have noted, Pilar is delightful, informative, and can assess the style and shape that is best suited to one's body size and shape. All four of us left NYC with items that we might not otherwise consider, but found that those pieces looked fabulous. I would highly recommend Pilar, and have... More

Me and my wife went on this private shopping experience when in New York last February. Pilar was friendly and helpful and took us to multiple designers. We especially liked visiting Kal Rieman where we enjoyed having Kal herself pick out outfits for my wife.

I received my shopping spree with Pilar as a birthday present. It was fabulous. I contacted her before and told her a little about me. She was able to take me to designers that matched my style. I was able to meet with designers, preview next season's designs as well as get great fashion advice from Pilar herself. I usually... More

I contacted Pilar after reading and speaking with a few other tours like hers for my wife's 40th BD Pilar was great to deal with. She was everything that we were looking for in this type of experience. My wife is very picky and Pilar was extremely honest and the show rooms and clothes were fantastic. She received great quality... More

Pilar's shopping tour was amazing! My 14-year old 'very hard to please' daughter and myself had Pilar and some of NYC's leading designers to ourselves. It was incredibly fun!! We had a fabulous time and picked up a heap of original clothing items at amazing prices (and even sneaked a peak at next season's designs!!). Pilar tailored the trip to... More

Our New York Personal Shopper experience with Pilar Katz was always going to be a highlight for 2 shopaholic Aussie friends visiting for a whirlwind week to shop themselves into a frenzy in New York City. A gift from my friend's husband for Christmas we planned our whole week in New York around this day. We were prepared with extra... More

What a fantastic day! Pilar started by asking us about what level of fashions we were wanting to see. We found all kinds of finds in a shop where it seemed everything was $20. Never any pressure to buy. Only that you try stuff on. Once Pilar gets an idea of your style she is pulling things from the racks.... More

I was kind of splurging a bit because I was a solo shopper, therefore, no one else to share the tour cost with, HOWEVER, that turned to be great. This allowed Pilar and I a chance to discuss the fashion industry, the garment district in New York, and to have her complete attention and help throughout the trip. I was... More

Pilar was very friendly & tried to be accommodating. After an afternoon spent looking at various small designer studios, our group realized we would rather shop on our own. Choices & sizes were limited...overpriced for experience.

Pilar took me by myself. Once she figured out my style and what I was looking for, she nailed it perfectly. It was a one of a kind experience! I loved it. I will, definitely, use her again.
