The Big Apple and fashion go together like Carrie Bradshaw and Manolo Blahniks which is why a fashion and textiles tour to New York City has got just so much going for it.
Getting your university students behind the scenes of some of the world's leading department stores is an exceptionally worthwhile foray and even if you're just in town to window shop swanning down Madison Avenue presents plenty of 'to die for' moments.
Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney and Alexander Wang all have flag ship NYC stores and if you fancy pressing your nose against some more glass then head to Fifth Avenue for Armani, Dolce & Gabbana and Tiffany & Co.
Aside from the fabulous fashions of Midtown and Soho, the Garment District, between Fifth Avenue and Ninth Avenue, holds plenty of history with the Fashion Walk of Fame and the Needle Threading a Button sculpture both dedicated to the city's fashion industry.
For more history lessons, the Museum at FIT is an absolute must for university fashion and textile students in New York. With numerous exhibits providing a rich range of fashion and textile-related artefacts, this is a unique and fascinating chance for students to absorb the esteem upon which NYC holds the fashion world.
The Museum of FIT is also well-known for its educational and special access options for visiting university students and if you're leading a fashion and textiles tour then this is an excellent means of gleaming some extremely pertinent research notes.
The MET is no slouch either when it comes to displays of fashion and if you're looking to focus upon costumes and textiles spanning 5 continents and over 3 centuries then head to Fifth Avenue and you won't be disappointed.
With the option to take a guided tour around the Garment Centre, Macy's Department Store and the locations of Sex and the City, it's easy to see why New York City fashion & textiles student tours have got success embroidered all over them.
