My daughter and I went to NY the week of her birthday. I booked with Pilar before we arrived and I knew we would love her even before we met her. Pilar is so knowledgeable in the field of fashion and each designer respected her. What a fun way to spend a few hours.....walking from showroom to showroom playing dressup!... More

What an afternoon we had with Pilar! I had a few hours before my fight back and we booked a tour with Pilar. It was so fun, we went to a variety of showrooms and boy did we shop. The dress I ordered --they didn't have my size--no problem! They shipped it to me and it just arrived and it... More

Visiting the Garment District has been on my bucket list for years and I finally made it, with Pilar leading the way! She was such a delight, and able to navigate from one designer to the next with ease. To visit the actual designers in their showrooms was amazing. I will always have wonderful memories attached to the clothing I... More

My mother had a friend who had gone shopping with Pilar, so she coordinated this on my 30th birthday as we were up visiting NYC. We had a blast - meeting designers, seeing their studios and where they make the clothes. A total treat for my birthday and would highly recommend it! Pilar first likes to understand your personal style... More

My sisters and I had a great day with Pilar! She listened to our wants/needs and took us to places where we each found treasures despite our varying tastes and sizes. Not only did we each come away with goods, we also enjoyed the experience of visiting the designer showrooms and getting a glimpse of the fashion industry in NYC.... More

My wonderful husband surprised me for my birthday with a shopping spree with Pillar. I had a great time with her and she showed me around the garment district helping me find out great outfits for the upcoming months. Thank you!

We had a great time visiting designers, getting an inside look of studios and having the opportunity to visit with each personally. Loved it. My daughters (ages 18 & 29) and I loved it so much that we decided to make it an annual trip! That says a lot since it's no small affair getting there from Texas!

My mother, younger sister, and myself had a great time with Pilar. Finding designers that could accommodate all three of our very different ages and tastes could have been an insurmountable challenge for many, but she handled with ease and ensured that each of us had ample shopping time.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
