Style Room – Private Shopping Tour Experiences
Instead of waiting for designer duds to hit department store racks, gain access to some of New York City's premier showrooms and studios, where you and your friends can shop for items that aren't yet available to the general public. (On occasion, you'll even get to meet the designers.) From clothing and handbags to jewelry and accessories, tour participants shop stock and sample items at 50% to 80% off retail. Style Room tours, approximately four hours in length, are organized and led by fashion insider Karen Parker O'Brien and are suited for small groups.
