    If you’re thinking of going on a fashion holiday, there are a few places that’ll spring to mind. These are probably:

    • Paris
    • Milan
    • New York
    • London

    Hosting the four main fashion shows of the year, these are the places where trends are born and your wardrobe begins to take shape. These places are where some of the world’s biggest designers are located and where trends were born before they even fell on to the radar of the designers.

    After all, the New York’s underground and London’s punk scene gave birth to many famous fashion movements that are still influencing today.

    But, while these cities offer great fashion and an even better culture to imbed yourself in, below, we’ve listed four new city fashion capitals you simply need to visit.
