Milan is known as the Quadrilatero d’Oro (the golden rectangle) of fashion for a good reason. Some of world’s most famous fashion and jewelry boutiques are located right in the heart of the city. To see some of the best creations and Italian designers, visit Via Monte Napoleone, Via Alessandro Manzoni, Via della Spiga and Corso Venezia, streets that you can’t miss on a fashion-filled euro-trip. The most opulent avenue, Via Monte Napoleone makes fashionista dreams come true. It is considered one of the most expensive and prestigious streets in the world, where you’ll find luxurious brands like Gucci, Giorgio Armani, Dolce and Gabana and Prada.

Learn about space design, product design, information design and, last but not least, fashion design. Next, visit Barcelona’s Textile and Clothing Museum.

New York City
New York City rivals Paris as the premier fashion capital of the world and it’s easy to see why. A good place to start is on New York’s famous Fifth Avenue. Your trip here may be a bit indulgent, but it’s your vacation. So, treat yourself! On Fifth Ave., you’ll find high-end stores like Tiffany and Co., Louis Vuitton, Versace and Prada, plus popular stores with cheaper prices like Abercrombie and Fitch or Gap. When your finished shopping, head to the Metropolitan Museum, the largest museum in the United States with a wondrous collection of iconic fashion. You’ll see more than 80,000 costumes and accessories from five continents, making it the largest collection of its kind in the world. Fashionistas can get an up close look at a 1620s French doublet and a 1927 House of Chanel coat.

Berlin definitely doesn’t have Parisian haute couture or Milan’s luxury artisan brands. But nonetheless, it still has its unique fashion flare.

A flea market at Arkonaplatz on Sundays is the perfect place to see this. You’ll find eclectic styles, great vintage clothing and amazing jewelry too. Check out Kreuzberg, Friedrichshain and Neukölln neighborhoods for even more artsy, alternative vibes.
