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

Pilar is the best friend you never knew you had! We could have never shopped (nor found!) the studios she took us to. It was an amazing 4 hours meeting designers, trying on clothing and having a ton of fun. We would definitely recommend Pilar and and hope to meet up with her the next time we are in NYC!

My girlfriends and I had a lot of fun shopping with Pilar. We all got some great pieces and had so much fun. She was great to work with and very professional. Everywhere she brought us had the friendliest people, designers, and staff. I highly recommend that you try this unique shopping experience at least once. I don't like crowds... More

Pilar is such a fun, pleasant woman. She is so encouraging and genuinely cared about each of us finding exactly what we wanted, yet encouraged us to step out of our comfort zones at the same time. We visited 2 designers and another place that had clothes that you might find at Macy's, but for much less. There were 5... More

My husband booked this for me on a recent visit to NYC at just 24 hours notice. I wanted to find some unusual pieces to add to my wardrobe and only had a few hours to spare. Pilar responded immediately and rearranged her diary to accommodate my tight schedule. We visited four designers, each very different. The first designer was... More

My family and I booked Pilar on a whim while we were planning our first trip to NYC. Before even meeting with her, I was already impressed. She returned all my emails so quickly and answered my many questions about pricing and what I could expect to find at the sample sales. We began the tour in an amazing designer's... More

First, I need to say that Pilar is an absolute gem and you will have an amazing experience with her! I booked this shopping tour months in advance and spent some time emailing back and forth with Pilar. She made sure she had my size and a general idea of what I was looking for so she could plan our... More

We started off the tour with a fantastic designer where we could purchase samples and/or order from the upcoming fall line. Pilar was very flexible working hard to accommodate all our likes/dislikes. There were three Southern girlfriends in our group -- the classic, the trendy and the glamour. And all three of us were able to find several wonderful treasures!... More

We booked Pilar to take advantage of some boutique buying and saving some money on purchasing some unique items. There was 5 of us and we had lovely fun afternoon with all of us picking up some great buys! Prices of items can vary from $20 to $160+ so very variable, but can be tailored to your budget. You need... More
