What a fantastic day! Pilar started by asking us about what level of fashions we were wanting to see. We found all kinds of finds in a shop where it seemed everything was $20. Never any pressure to buy. Only that you try stuff on. Once Pilar gets an idea of your style she is pulling things from the racks. The next two places were of higher quality and the designers were there. Their enthusiasm was contagious. They wanted to see their clothes on you. Such a fun shopping day. The behind the scenes feel really made the whole experience special.

I was kind of splurging a bit because I was a solo shopper, therefore, no one else to share the tour cost with, HOWEVER, that turned to be great. This allowed Pilar and I a chance to discuss the fashion industry, the garment district in New York, and to have her complete attention and help throughout the trip. I was very specific with what I was looking for and she was able to match me with the designers she thought were a good fit. My only complaint, this was too short of a time period. She was nice enough to offer to stay longer but I did not want to take advantage of her. I'll put away the left over $700 for our next trip! Thanks Pilar.

Pilar was very friendly & tried to be accommodating. After an afternoon spent looking at various small designer studios, our group realized we would rather shop on our own. Choices & sizes were limited...overpriced for experience.

Pilar took me by myself. Once she figured out my style and what I was looking for, she nailed it perfectly. It was a one of a kind experience! I loved it. I will, definitely, use her again.

My daughter and I spent an afternoon shopping with Pilar. She made sure that we found everything we were looking for, and then some. She tracked us down afterwards when we left something at one of the shops, and also sent us some info about other sales we might be interested in. She's fantastic to work with and we're looking forward to shopping with her again!
