Meg's review from 2011 is below:
NY Elegant Fabrics is another Garment District store I wish I could wholeheartedly recommend when people ask me about must-visit stores in the area. If my recommendations were based solely on the friendliness of the proprietors, then I'd say yeah, definitely go here because I really like Charles Yoo.
But honestly, readers, I don't enjoy shopping at NY Elegant the way I do at some stores in the Garment District. The layout is confusing. The lighting is poor. The bolts are stacked too high and it's difficult to pull a bolt out on your own unless you're really strong. And—this is the kicker—the prices seem higher than elsewhere in the area. Significantly higher. I rarely buy anything here other than linings.
Enough about what I think about NY Elegant. Readers, what are your opinions? Please leave a comment here.
|Cotton prints in spring and summer colors.|
|NY Elegant always has a huge array of colors to choose from. Points for that.|
|Linings are reasonably priced here. These poly prints are $6.95/yd.|
|I do like how swatches are already cut for you, ready for the taking.|
|One of the few stores that sells Liberty of London fabrics.|
