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

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

Pilar was a rare find. My friends booked her for my bachelorette weekend in NYC. It turned out to be the BEST thing on the itinerary - even better than the Met Opera and Nobu! We ALL bought multiple things - not due to pressure from Pilar, but because we really LOVED what we saw. Fur. Beautifully cut overcoats. Italian... More

Pilar was recommended to me by a business colleague, and I have to say, she exceeded my expectations! My daughter and I made our first trip to NYC this past week, and I wanted to see some original and unique fashions that we wouldn't find at home. Pilar took us to some amazing designer showrooms (all within walking distance from... More

Pilar is a power package that keeps you going. She takes you to designers and showrooms, based on the styles she thinks you`d like. She does this on your terms, that is not being pushy. If you haven`t tried a having a personal shopping assistant before, I bet you should try this one out.

I booked Pilar for my girlfriend's bachelorette weekend in NYC. We are a picky bunch when it comes to fashion and Pilar was spot on with all her recommendations! I cannot believe what amazing clothes I found that I would never have known about if it was not for Pilar. Pilar even took us to an amazing place for furs.... More

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
