Share

Ranging from top-of-the-line designers to fashion houses, there are always some cities that promise the best fashion experience. These cities are also home to fashion weeks, award ceremonies, exhibitions, and fashion festivals. Many people only know Italy as the country of fashion, but many other fashion capitals have their charisma.

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that fashion capitals have their sense of aesthetics. So, are you ready to check out which cities you should hit if you have a knack for fashion?

Paris

The list of fashion capitals is incomplete without Paris because it’s named of the most fashionable cities to exist. That’s because Paris has top-notch fashion schools, the most prestigious fashion institutes, and top-of-the-line ateliers. The fashion power of Paris started when King Louis XIV came into power. That’s because the royals brought fashion to this city, and the rest has been history.

Berlin

When in Berlin, you don’t have to stick to one fashion aesthetics because everyone takes pride in their fashion sense and the fashion paradigm changes with every neighborhood. For instance, people of Kreuzberg use vintage clothing while people in Charlottenburg have a high-street and luxury fashion sense.

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that there is a clear difference in fashion sense in the eastern and western regions of Germany. If you go to the eastern side, people will be seen in dark colors while people on the western side have a preppy fashion sense with well-tailored pieces and vibrant colors.

London

London has been on the top of every list, and to be fortunate, they have made a mark in the fashion sense as well. It’s one of the best fashion capitals with luxury hotels and houses. Ranging from Alexander McQueen to Stella McCartney, there are top-notch designers in this city, so it’s only fair for this city to have fashion in the air.

London hosts the LFW, which is a biannual fashion show (it has been around since 1984). This fashion show is a perfect place to check out the collection of different designers from around the world. There are designer showrooms, catwalk shows, and presentations.

Stockholm

Everyone knows this city is the capital of Sweden, but this city has gained popularity for its minimal styling aesthetic. Many people consider these minimal clothes their uniform and most of them stick to the grey and black color palette (yes, they are into a muted palette). In simpler words, they are following the “less is more” approach.

It’s safe to say that there are no specific dress codes as people opt for informal styling. When you first go there, you will see a lot of people in white T-shirts, black jeans, and black boots. However, in the summer season, many people opt for shorts and flats.

Milan

This city has a long history of fashion because it dates back to the 19th century, but it has made contributions to 20th-century fashion as well. For instance, Giorgio Armani and Roberto Cavalli are two people who were discovered in this city. This city’s fashion is inclined towards premium fabrics and hand-crafted workmanship. In simpler words, Milan has a fine balance of creative and elegant fashion.

Tokyo

Tokyo isn’t the first name that comes to your mind in the fashion world, but it has something special for sure. Everyone is super stylish, and they don’t shy away from experimenting with accessories and colors here. There is a clothing variety, ranging from contemporary to classic and eccentric styles. Most people are seen in dark jeans and trousers.

As far as the accessories are concerned, people are always looking for drama in the form of bows, ruffles, frills, laces, and flounces. People are never too formal here because sharp suits aren’t meant for formal occasions only.

New York

New York is one of the most popular fashion capitals out there with creative talent as well as never-ending fashion outlets. In addition, there is an array of fashion schools and top-notch production companies. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that New York has a significant influence on international fashion, which is why it has become a hub for trade fairs and fashion events.

Barcelona

One cannot see a bunch of fashionistas roaming the city of Barcelona. It seems like everyone is a model here because they are always styled to perfection and have on-point grooming. Everyone seems to know their best features and they take pride in highlighting them. Ranging from flattering cuts to dark bases and bright-colored accessories, they do it all. However, they never say goodbye to elegance and sophistication!

Rome

Not many people believe that Rome believes to be on this list, but you cannot ignore the fact that big names like Prada, Armani, and Versace are all into this Italian fashion. In the beginning, Florence became the economic and cultural hub but the ever-increasing popular of Milan-based designers in the 20th century has turned Rome into a city of fashion.

To be precise, Rome is known as the eternal city and it’s becoming a fashion destination, slowly but successfully.

Shanghai

Shanghai is the ultimate place for people who want to see innovation and history collide while making fashion statements. Shanghai is filled with innovative designers, which is reason Shanghai is being called the Paris of the East. This place is embracing luxury fashion but that doesn’t stop them from experimenting with funky and unique streetwear.

For this reason, it’s better to go to the local markets to explore the real fashion because you can find the same Dolce & Gabbana in a faraway land. In fact, Shanghai is capitalizing on its fashion sense because there is an array of garment and textile factories. The designers are playing it safe while experimenting with modern as well as traditional themes.

Los Angeles

Everyone loves the tall palm trees in Los Angeles but there is more to this city than beaches and pretty roads. It has been known as the tinsel-town for too long, but it has managed to shake off this image by getting into the fashion world. It all started when Hedi Slimane chose the West Coast to reopen after taking time off work.

The fashion designers in Los Angeles are focusing on original and creative world, which is helping them carve a name. In fact, soon, this City of Angels will give tough competition to New York.

Copenhagen

This capital of Denmark might have been popular for the castles and palaces, but it is also becoming a fashion capital. It’s still in the emerging phase but the way new designers and creative work are popping out of here, it won’t take more than a few years. The designers here use a muted color palette with minimal and practicality style.

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that they are embracing timeless and effortless fashion, which can be seen in every Danish man and woman on the street. In fact, everyone seems like they are either going for a Vogue shoot or are coming back. In addition, there is an increasing number of Danish fashion brands at the global scale, and we are here for it.
