A sense of style is something that is shared by fashionable people in all parts of the world, but it’s the fashion that differs. In order to truly see fashion in all its diverse form, you will need to travel, so here are five cities which should be on top of your list for that.
Italy is famous for being one of the brewing grounds for international style and fashion, so Milan being on this list should not come as a surprise. After all, Milan Fashion Week all set for next month is world famous for a reason. Versace, Dolce & Gabbana and Armani are just some of the names that call this city home, and if you are a fashionista who has not visited Milan yet, you need to correct the situation as soon as possible.
New York, USA
New York has become famous for big law firms and giant businesses, but what we often forget is the fact that the Big Apple also hosts the internationally acclaimed New York Fashion Week every year, which is attended by the world’s best designers, just before the Milan Fashion Week. Not to forget, NYC also plays host to the Fashion Institute of Technology and the Parsons School of Design; two of the most respected fashion schools in the world. Aside from being the prime seat of fashion in the United States, the city has also produced some big names in the industry.
The thing about fashion is that it doesn’t necessarily have to carry a big brand name with it to be good and the Lindengasse Fashion Mile, alongside many other small but beautiful shopping districts in Vienna, are perfect examples of precisely that. This is not to say that there is any shortage of big brand products here, but it’s the independent brands with mostly an Eastern European touch which is Vienna’s fashion attraction. The city itself is a beautiful and historic place, which everyone should visit at least once.
A city that gave rise to prominent designers like Jimmy Choo and Vivienne Westwood had to be included in this list. London is not like the other European cities in the sense that Londoners have a unique sense of style about them. For example, Chelsea and South Kensington are world famous now for displaying some of the most exquisite street fashion.
Let’s admit it; we all knew this was coming because Paris is indeed the fashion capital of the world. The Paris Fashion Week is still the most prestigious event in the industry and the likes of Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Pierre Cardin, Céline and many more top fashion brands all hail from the world’s most fashionable city. Chances are that you have probably already visited France, but no one should think twice before visiting the city again.
If you liked this list and would prefer to know more about other beautiful cities from around the world before planning your next trip, be sure to check out Holy City; a dedicated site to inform travelers about the best places to visit in and around the globe.
After all, these five might be some of the most fashionable cities in the world, but they are most certainly not the only ones.
