Travel Light, Arrive Prepared

    Tired of packing and repacking your luggage, lugging eveningwear outfits to important occasions, or organizing an entire family’s wardrobe for a ski vacation? Garde Robe, the New York-based luxury wardrobe storage and valet service, can help. Its unique and convenient clothing service for business and leisure travelers is now available in Japan, Las Vegas, and Southern California. To initiate the service, clients personally select certain on-and-off-season wardrobe items to be photographed and catalogued on a personalized online account with Garde Robe and kept in its climate-controlled storage lofts. When the items are needed, clients can call or go online to their CyberCloset (a photographic display of their wardrobe), choose which items they need, where and when, and the company will have them hanging in their hotel room’s closet upon check-in or in their second home’s master bedroom suite. Garde Robe is also the newly named “official clothier” for a number of well-known, high-end hotels in New York City, such as the St. Regis, the Plaza, Trump SoHo, and One Madison Park. Personal shopping, luggage-packing services, image consultants, makeup artists, and first-class seamstress services for fittings and alterations in the convenience of a client’s home or hotel room are also available. Its new virtual stylist service gives tips to clients on how to best restyle their wardrobe in their personal CyberCloset. Rates start at $350 per month, and include security and insurance for all items and complimentary pickup and delivery service. (212.255.3163, www.garderobeonline.com)
