Luckily, with tickets from, it’s possible. Get the chance to see and shop for designs from the upcoming superstars in the fashion world to the current season collections. Each tour has a mix of classic and more avant-garde fashion options suitable for a range of ages.

See some of the area’s landmarks, including the Fashion Walk of Fame, Mood Fabrics, and the Project Runway residence. As a final bonus, when you leave, you’ll get an exclusive list of all the sample sales happening around New York City.
