NYC Private Shopping Tour



I have been a fashion lover, fashion stylist, fashion designer and owner of my own brand for many years. I offer a fashion tours in NYC, and I am the shopping columnist for New York Social Diary, and I  and I have also been a fashion consultant for companies as different as Rebecca Taylor and Polo Ralph Lauren. I have been fortunate enough to travel to and work in major cities around the world: London, Paris, Milan, Florence, Rome, Los Angeles, Mumbai, Hong Kong, Istanbul and Tokyo as well as New York. Book one of my Private Tours and explore New York with me.

Understanding and loving other cultures I was able to absorb all that these wonderful places had to offer and explore off-the-beaten-track stores and local markets. This made me appreciate New York even more. New York is my home, and I love exploring all that it has to offer. Working in the Garment District, I’ve been constantly on the lookout for the newest of the new and I’ve developed a vast set of resources in fashion and interior design.

​I look forward to taking you on a shopping tour in New York and sharing the stores and culture of New York–from luxe and ultra-cool designer shops to couture to funky and upscale vintage shopping and consignment shopping; indie and street wear designers; amazing design, specialty food and lifestyle stores, as well as the best men’s and children’s stores and the many flea markets in NY. I know the city—from the Upper East Side to the Garment District to all over the many neighborhoods of downtown Manhattan, to Williamsburg, Greenpoint and beyond in Brooklyn. NYC shopping tours will take you to the best shopping experiences. Come Tour New York.

​Visit NYC. Let me show you the city’s secret gems. I offer tours specially designed for your lifestyle, so that you can experience the shopping and culture of my New York and find your New York that you never knew existed.​
