Buenos Aires, AR
Por La Calle design tours are the fabulous result of design industry workers marrying their passion for fashion design with retail, and presenting it to the public every so often with clever circuits, organized by neighborhood. The lively walking tours are an excellent way for the curious shopper to go beyond what is displayed in boutique windows and learn more about the process behind crafting each piece of clothing, jewelry, or footwear. The circuits, which are free of charge, deal exclusively with local designers working with Argentinean materials and are a fantastic way for tourists to become acquainted with Buenos Aires' vibrant independent fashion scene or for the seasoned BA shopper to hone their eye for texture, pattern, shape, etc. in their favorite labels' products. And the best part? Many of the shops (which have included DAM, Cora Groppo, Juana de Arco, Mariano Toledo, No Brand, and Digital Mixture) offer exclusive discounts to Por La Calle hoofers.
