Best Un-Famous Place for Aspiring Fashion Designers to Shop for Fabric (2013)

Paron Fabrics

Anybody who's ever watched Project Runway already knows about Mood. But for a less overwhelming experience and prices that are comparable or better, head just a few blocks north to Paron Fabrics, a family-run business with a 40-year history. Have a sudden hankering to dress like Sharon Stone in Casino? Paron stocks silk jersey that will help you fulfill your dream. If a trim little Jackie O. suit or coat is more your thing, check out the store's selection of always-gorgeous European wool tweeds. Looking for something specific and don't see it? The staff will try to find it for you, and they're always happy to give advice. Don't miss the sale room, where you can find all manner of treasures by the yard at half price.
