Garment District

Also known as the Fashion District, New York’s Garment District is located in Manhattan between Fifth and Ninth Avenues and 34th and 42nd Streets. It gets its name due to the high concentration of show rooms, fashion brands, wholesale outlets and production spaces. Along with being a mecca for fabric and apparel, the Garment District is also worthwhile as shoppers can find everything from designer pieces to budget buys and sample sales. Start your tour of the area at the Garment District Kiosk at 39th and Seventh Avenue to pick up maps, brochures and coupons that will help you navigate the many fashionable spaces. If you can only go to one shop in the area, make it Mood Fabrics which encompasses three floors of designer textiles.

Visitors also enjoy walking the Fashion Hall of Fame from 38th to 40th along Seventh Avenue. Similar to the star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Fashion Hall of Fame showcases decorative plaques dedicated to notable designers that are set into the sidewalk. There’s also the Parsons School of Design from the famous television show “Project Runway,” as well as the free Fashion Institute of Technology Museum, with educational exhibits on fashion.

To get to the Garment District, take the 1, 2, 3, N, R, along Broadway and Seventh Avenue; the A, C, E along Eighth Avenue; N, R, W to 34th Street - Herald Square; B, D, F, V to 34th Street- Herald Square or 42nd Street-Bryant Park; 7 or Shuttle (S) from the East Side/Grand Central Station.
