Published, 2 years ago

Although Milan is not the capital of Italy, it is the hub of economic and commercial activities. It can be considered the Fashion Capital of the World. The city is a source of revenue for Italy, as it preserves the historical significance of the country. It also attracts businesses from around the world to invest in the country.

Like other cities of Italy, Milan is host to some fascinating artwork and mind-blowing architecture.

Milan is a mixture of legacy, tradition, and modernism because the beautiful, vivid buildings and streets and people preserve the essence of Milan.

However, it is not only the architecture that makes Milan a great place to visit. There is something else that people of the world associate with Milan.

It is an identity that has made Milan the fashion capital of the world and added great significance to the legacy of the city. 

The fashion capital of the world

Fashion forms the image of modern Milan in the contemporary world. Unlike many other places, Milan is full of colour and style throughout the year, making it vogue all year long.

The presence of local and international brands makes Milan one of the best high-end shopping destinations in the world. 

This blog post further reiterates why not just Milan but the whole of Italy is the ideal place designer bags and your favourite brand’s hunt.

There are reasons why Milan is called the fashion capital of the world and has this lucrative title attached to it.

There are other destinations too which offer the same brands and prioritize the fashion industry the same way as Milan does. But they don’t get the same acceptance from wider audiences as Milan.

These are the five things we think Milan is the fashion capital of the world. And also why it holds this particular regard in the hearts of its followers.

Milan Fashion Week

One must be under a cave somewhere if they have not heard of this glamorous event and the value it has for those attached.

However, almost all countries have their fashion week now, what makes Milan’s so special is a question that must be racing your mind.

Milan Fashion Week is an event which no notable fashion house or designer misses, which signifies its importance.

The event is the dream event of young designers wanting to showcase their skills to the people around the world. It is the significance attached that has made the event a premier event in the world of fashion.

Unlike other fashion events, Milan holds the fashion week twice a year to accommodate all the potential designers and fashion houses.

Holding fashion weeks twice a year allows them the chance to showcase their talent in front of the world.

Your fashion is the reflection of the clothes you wear. All the accessories you wear and how you wear them contribute to your personality.

However, one supplement that helps in making your style complete and giving in a bold statement is the shoes.

The city hosts an event by the name of MICAM every year, to highlight and celebrate the significance of shoes. 

The event brings under one roof all footwear specialists so that they can present their sample footwear to an enthusiastic audience and fashion journalists.

One accessory dedicates to the event, and not many cities hold such events.

The Monte Napoleone is one of the oldest streets in Milan. The road housed a lot of famous personalities in the past today. 

However, it is home to the most expensive and prestigious brands around the world.

The significance of the street today can be assessed by the fact that it accounts for more than 12% of Milan’s GDP.

Golden Rectangle

The Via Monte Napoleone is part of what we call the Quadrilatero d’Oro. The name translates to the Golden Rectangle, which is a collection of streets that are host to fashion shops of various sizes.

The variety that the Quadrilatero d’Oro offers is not limited to different brands. Quadrilatero d’Oro can also differentiate it to various boutique fashion outlets from which you can but particular oddities. 

The street features work from designers around the world, including that of talented Italian designers.

You can walk through the street, enjoying the view and the plethora of brands on offer if you don’t intend on buying anything.

These were the five things because of which Milan is known as the Fashion Capital of the World. 

And also why Milan holds so much significance in the eyes of fashion designers from across the board.

However, it is upon visiting the city when the true essence of fashion dawns upon you.

The city and the residents hold fashion in high regard; the residents of Milan are the most fashionable in the world. Not being trendy amidst a crowd of locals from Milan will make you stand out like an alien from a human.

Every city has some things that it holds on to, or values more than other aspects. For Milan, it is the fashion that glues the town together. 

The fashion week holds a special place in the hearts of the residents because they’re aware of what the fashion industry brings to the city.
