Visiting NYC?

Introducing THE NYC Fashion Experience!

Shop like a fashion designer, Sew like a couturier.

Watch Jeannie D.’s NYCFashion Experience Below:

A fun group activity for children, teens and adults interested in Fashion Design or even fans of the show Project Runway. Meet us at our Manhattan Studio in the heart of the Garment Center of NYC.  We can chat about what you’d love to make or even give you a design challenge. After a short walk to Mood Designer Fabrics (where all the best designers shop) we’ll channel Tim Gunn and give you time to select and purchase your fabric.  Back at the studio it’s time to cut and sew your one-of-a-kind creation.

The Garment CenterThe perfect sewing activity for locals and visitors alike who want a true New York fashion experience. On our way to and from Mood we’ll walk through the garment center, check out the Fashion Walk of Fame, pass the big button, see the showrooms and meet Mood’s mascot-doggie Swatch (if he’s at work that day)!

We’ve had visitors from all over the world visit us to learn to sew and experience NYC’s Garment District like a real fashion designer!

This experience takes place in our Bryant Park Manhattan studio only, located in the Garment District at 21 W 39th Street, between 5th and 6th avenues, New York NY 10018.
