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 in her showroom when we arrived and was very attentive, which I was not expecting as part of the deal but it made the experience very special. I bought some amazing pieces there, which I am really delighted with. Cheapest item $40, most expensive was $280, all retailed for at least twice that.
Pilar was brilliant at tuning into what I liked but also suggesting things I would not have considered. She was never pushy and advised me against things that didn't suit me. She has a great relationship with the designers and is fun to be with; It was like shopping with a great, fashion-savvy, straight talking girlfriend. Although I had only booked three hours, we spent much longer than that, Pilar was very generous with her time.
If you are open to fur or fur-trimmed garments (cardigans, capes, wraps etc) then don't miss the fur showroom. I bought the most gorgeous grey fur-trimmed cape and navy cardigan with fur collar, both of which I can hardly wait to wear.
There isn't much walking so you could do the day in heels if you wanted to, but do wear a two piece outfit that is easy to slip on and off. Typically there is nowhere private to change, so best lingerie too! Also take a small bottle of water as it is thirsty work, though one showroom very kindly supplied both water and coffee.
I have my 14/15 Fall/Winter wardrobe sorted now. Roll on Fall! I would recommend this to anyone who likes to buy nice pieces but appreciates great value. My best day in NYC!
