"Fashion everywhere..." Top 5 Page for this destination Shopping Tip by Henrik_rrb

Shopping, Milan: 31 reviews and 29 photos

Milan is, at least according to me, the most famous fashion-city in the whole world. You can see that from all the designers who lives and works there, from all the famous shops in Milan, but also from the two huge Fashion Weeks that every year happens in the Italian town.
The first is the last week in February, while the second one is during the first week of October.
I would be lying if you?ll see the fashion-theme all over town, as you might even miss it if you don?t know what you should be looking for. But on the other side, try to get a hotel in Milan during these two weeks? Book loooong time in advance, won?t say more? People from the whole world invades Milan for these weeks, and there are fashion shows about everywhere. Even at the central trainstation?
Last year I had forgotten about the fashion week, and it took me 3-4 days before I could understand where all these extra beautiful women came from? :D

Directions: More or less everywhere in the city...
