Fashion Industry Educational Tours in New York City

Holland Grumieaux worked in the fashion industry in NYC for the past 20 years and started her own company called Banson NYC in November 2008.   Her company provides educational tours of the fashion industry in NYC to students interested in pursuing the field.   Tours include visiting fashion showrooms, exhibits and design studios, attending seminars pertaining to the field and participating in educational shopping trips.  The evenings include fun activities such as dining out, relaxing at The High Line,  and enjoying popular shows in the theatre district.

According to Holland, “The focus of the program is to teach the students the fundamentals of the fashion industry through hands-on activities and advice from insiders and leaders in the business.  This is not your conventional trip to NYC…it’s truly an eye-opening week for any fashionista to learn more about what they have been learning in the classroom.”

  1. I would like to do this, but I need more information before I would commit. Are there any connections with high fashion companies or mainly mainstream retail? Also would like to know about price and what date(s) it would be.


  2. We would love to have a group of students either join us on a tour that is already scheduled or create a proposal for JMU students specifically. If you are interested to receive more information, please go on to our website at and fill in the GROUP INQUIRY page if you are faculty and would like a tour created for 10 or more students or the STUDENT INQUIRY if you are a student who would be intererested in joining another tour. We look forward to hearing from you!
