Shopping in New York

New York is the best city in the country for shopping.  Not only is there the best selection of all the top brands anywhere, like Prada, Gucci, Miss Sixty, Earl Jean and more, but you can also find sample sales and discounts from all the top designers.  Travel guides tell you about the big stores like Saks and Bloomingdales, but I've created a list of the hottest shops right now for fashion!  These are the few shops I'd go out of my way for visit after visit because they're so special.


Henri Bendel: Elevates the whole shopping experience to a new level with music, live models and a great makeup department. Prada, Miss Sixty and more.

Barney's New York: Even if the clothes are beyond your means, stop in and visit the home department. Gucci, Armani, Earl Jean

Richart Chocolates: Chocolates flown in from Paris


Jeffrey: This is the shop that brought people into the Meatpacking district. Prada, Marc Jacobs


Barney's Co-Op: Barney's younger clothes get their own store! Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu, Diane VonFustenburg

Intermix: Fun mix of offbeat designers including Marc Jacobs, Katayone Adeli

Lounge: Need something to wear out at night? This is the place.


Century 21: All the top designers at a discount

Questions and Answers

i am foreign girl. Shoes are part of my life. Especially i love Manolo Blanic but i dont know where to get it... Please help me...

The Manolo Blahnik store is at 31 W. 54th St (closed sunday). If you love shoes (and fashion in general), you should also visit Barney's New York and Bergdorf Goodman. Both stores have amazingly wonderful shoe departments.
