An induced that gives work to many people and that moves billions of euros. Not just fashion shows: Milan is also the capital of fashion stores, jewelers’ shops and antique dealers. Many side events take place in the ancient buildings of the center. Museums, cafés, cinemas and even bookshops become exclusive locations to host events regarding the world of fashion.

The streets of luxury

At the center of the city, the most exclusive shopping streets form what everyone calls the “quadrilateral of fashion” that is concentrated between Corso Venezia, via Montenapoleone, via Manzoni and via della Spiga. To shop in the showrooms and boutiques of these streets, or just to admire the windows that are also high-end creations, shopping lovers really come from all over the world.

These are the ‘fashion streets’ of the great designers, the emblazoned brands that the whole world envies like Armani, Versace, Valentino, Fendi, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana and many others. Names that have made and continue to make fashion history; expression of that “made in Italy” that is imposed from one pole to the other on the planet.

In these days Milan is hosting the Fashion Week dedicated to men’s collections for the autumn winter 2019/2020. A real marathon of style and trends. These are convulsive days in which one does not stop for a moment: it’s a run from one fashion show to another, from one event to another.
