Explore the NYC Garment District

Seek’s Garment District Tour is a New York City shopping and sightseeing tour which explores the center of the garment industry in NYC. Bounded roughly by 34th and 42nd Streets between Fifth and Ninth Avenues, the Garment District in midtown Manhattan is the epicenter for all things fashion. Fabric stores, trim and notions shops, button makers, sewing machine repair shops, warehouses, leather suppliers, designers’ studios, pleaters, dyers, pattern and sample makers, fashion schools, costume shops, and design showrooms are among the many industry resources and suppliers clustered in this grimy but much-loved swath of the west side.
