New York Design Tour
Saturday, May 14 - Monday, May 16, 2022

Tour begins Saturday, May 14th at 1 pm eastern. The 3-day tour explores design and fashion exhibits, inspiring retail, meeting NY insiders, and experiencing the city in a new way.

Tour agenda:
• Bergdorf Goodman's home floor
• Tour Sandy Chilewich’s retail store
• Museum of Art and Design show "Garmenting: Costume as Contemporary Art"
• Opening Reception
• Your evening is free – attend a Broadway show or experience dining in NYC

• A closing dinner with Emily Eerdmans, Eerdmans Fine Art, author of Mario Buatta: Fifty Years of American Interior Decoration

Emily will share about her experience cataloguing the home of renowned interior designer Mario Buatta for sale at Sothebys and starting her antique business. Emily is well-known in the antique industry having written many books on the history of design. She received a master’s degree in fine and decorative arts from Sotheby’s Institute of Art in London and has worked for some of the world's foremost antique dealers, and taught connoisseurship and design history at the New York School of Interior Design and FIT. Eardman’s website says “her hallmarks are discretion, transparency, expertise, and—the very reason she and Mario clicked—a sense of humor and the belief that our daily lives are enriched by art and antiques.”

The tour fee includes open reception cocktails, museum entry fees, shuffleboard and a casual dinner, showroom tours, a closing dinner with speaker and transportation voucher (for bus and subway). You will have Saturday evening free for a Broadway show.
