When it comes to fashion, where Milan leads, the world follows. The fashion houses of Milan have been setting catwalks aflame since the Renaissance, establishing a global standard for style. Alongside London, Paris and New York, Milan is a stage where fashion veterans and up-and-coming designers showcase their latest creations, both on the catwalk and out on the pavement. The focal point for fashion is the Quadrilatero d’Oro, one of the world’s most glamorous shopping quarters. Come for Milan Fashion Week in spring or autumn to view fashionistas in their finest.
