It’s official: New York City is the most fashionable place on earth. New York has gained the title back from London, who has held it for the past two years, with Paris coming in second this year. The crowning title comes at a very big time for fashion in New York City as major designers like Victoria Beckham are setting up offices in The Big Apple.
The Global Language Monitor, a company that studies trends in word usage, announced the news this week, noting the top 5 most fashionable cities as New York, Paris, London, Los Angeles, and Barcelona. “New York City has, indeed, earned its Top Global Fashion Capital ranking through its disciplined, methodical yet creative approach to its fashion industry.” said Bekka Payack, New York-based fashion director for The Global Language Monitor.
This title comes in the same week that New York Fashion Week begins, so here’s to hoping that we maintain our newly acquired status!
