GARMENT CENTER SHOWROOMS
SHOWROOM SHOPPING IN THE GARMENT CENTER This tour is for a woman who wants to feel like a fashion insider. She can be a luxury shopper or just a person curious about the process. There are many smaller designers and showrooms that welcome non-wholesale customers. Most of these brands are in the contemporary price point. There are handbag and jewelry designers, too. The prices are not quite wholesale, but they are less expensive than what guests might find in a store. The showrooms do not stock every size and color, but items can be sent to the guest. There are some designer price-point companies that will welcome customers to their showrooms. Pricing varies. The designer level will also do some made to measure.
