• DEFINITION OF FASHION CAPITAL 

A Fashion Capital assumes a position of leadership in apparel and design. 

Furthermore, fashion capitals traditionally have a large mix of industry, musical, sports, cultural and leisure activities and are known globally for possessing a distinctive and clear identity.

 It has also been observed that a fashion capital 's status has been increasingly connected to the national and international profile of a region. 

With design schools, fashion magazines and a local market of wealthy buyers, fashion capitals are also expected to be part of a larger design scene.

Paris has been considered world Fashion Capital since the 16th century. The term Fashion Capital is also used nowadays to identify the cities hosting fashion weeks, most notably Paris, Milan, London, Rome and New York, to highlight their industry. 

Many other cities still host major fashion festivals and are prominent in global fashion.
