Two months ago, in preparation for a trip my sister and I were making to NYC, I booked a garment district tour with Imani. She went out of her way to ask questions to make sure the tour was tailored to our interests. Even so, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. We were both blown away by the experience! To say Imani is knowledgeable, professional, connected in the fashion industry and fun is not doing her justice. She was simply amazing! My sister owns an online boutique - dottie-k.com - and loves fashion. Imani made her aware of wholesale stores in the area and gave us the opportunity to shop at a sample sale and buy from showrooms. I would go back to NYC just to do another garment district tour with her.

I NEVER write reviews (had to make an account on this site to review Imani), but she was great, didn't know what to expect on this tour, but it was a blast, informative, fun, and the connections we made with the individuals we met were fruitful!

Imani was excellent and extremely knowledgeable about all facets of the industry. She provided an engaged and educational tour for my 10 YO granddaughter (and me!!) who is interested in fashion. We were not exactly sure what to expect and can honestly say this 3 hour experience was one of the highlights of our trip to NYC as well as a positive investment of knowledge and discovery. Well done Imani!!!

We went on a group tour with Imani for the birthday of my male friend. Our tour was more educational in nature and took us around the garment district. Although we were not fashion students or involved in the fashion industry, we still found the tour a wonderful way to spend a winter morning.

Imani in action!!! I was fortunate enough to get a tour from Imani two years ago and she was completely booked when I returned..... but, while having lunch I got to see her “in action” while shepherding a group of women through the garment district.....EVERY ONE OF THEM had a smile on their face!!!! Wonderful experience!!!! Imani is, of course, the one with the beautiful iconic straw hat....🤗
