100. LA FASHION DISTRICT TOUR $85
See California’s Fashion District through the eyes of Joe Vecchiarelli! Joe is a Certified Fit Specialist for the television and apparel industry, and currently works on ABC-TV’s hit show “Dancing with the Stars.” Joe will be on the bus with you to provide commentary and behind-the-scenes stories in this unique and special tour opportunity.
First stop is downtown LA at the Los Angeles Fashion District to wander and shop. Dropoff point is at Michael Levine’s, a discount source offering fabric of all kinds from the biggest manufacturers along with notions, trims, beads, ribbons, silks, and upholstery.
Regroup for a quick ride over to the historic Grand Central Market where you can grab lunch on your own from a selection of over 30 eateries. After lunch, Joe has arranged for a special private tour of the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. FIDM Collections currently hold over 15,000 objects of high fashion, covering more than 200 years of history.
The last stop of the day is Mood. It’s the one featured on the show “Project Runway” and one of Joe’s favorite shopping spots. Note: We have tried to streamline and anticipate traffic time in Los Angeles . However, should traffic or highway construction alter our itinerary/arrival times, please settle back, and enjoy Joe’s stories!
