We decided to take a chance and book a fabric tour on line and spent the morning on a private tour with Liz who was outstanding. Our college junior is a budding fashion designer with fashion show in the fall, and he needed more fabric. We had been to the Garment District before but were overwhelmed by the many choices for buying fabric. Liz simplified all of that. She took us to a variety of stores in all price ranges and included notions and trim shops. She also took us to a book shop that was just for fashion mags and related publications. In addition, we learned a lot about history of the area. Most importantly she talked to our son about all aspects of design and having a fashion line. Liz’s experience and expansive knowledge made it a great day for all of us. We returned to buy fabric the next day. Thank you Liz!
