Dates are filling quickly--book NOW to guarantee your spot for spring/summer 2015!

Planning a spring or summer visit to New York City? Now is the time to reserve a time slot for your private shopping tour, fashion history tour, or personal styling experience!

Garment District Fabric Store in NYC
Why book early?
Seek is a boutique-sized company, and we pride ourselves on designing personalized tour itineraries for each of our guests. (We’re also proud of the fact that each of our fashion tour guides is also an actively working costume or fashion designer—check out our bios here!) For styling appointments, we like to have a few weeks to create a shopping plan and pull a rack of clothing just for you. For these reasons, stylist and tour guide availability is limited and we can’t always accommodate last-minute bookings.

For best availability, and to allow plenty of time for your guide or stylist to design a personalized experience for you, we recommend booking a minimum of
one month prior to your visit, and up to six months in advance if you have one specific date in mind for your tour. Simply submit a tour inquiry form to reserve your spot. Read More...
