Paris, Rome, and Madrid are the three most outstanding cities in the world in terms of style. Three authentic fashion capitals that set the trends in the rest of the world and that, year after year, surprise us with their designs on the catwalks of their fashion weeks. Take the opportunity to travel to them on those days when fashion takes over the cities and enjoy exclusive shopping in the most stylish areas of Madrid, Paris, and Rome while staying in luxury hotels such as the world’s most popular influencers, YouTubers, and bloggers.
It is no coincidence that Paris is considered, in addition to being the city of love, one of the capitals of fashion. The undeniable legacy of Parisian haute couture, with legends such as Coco Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Hubert de Givenchy, Jeanne-Marie Lanvin and Pierre Balmain, and its famous Fashion Week have made it a worthy heir to the most refined and sophisticated style.
It is difficult to think of the city without the Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame, the Paris Opera House and the Louvre, but it is also impossible to imagine Paris without the fashion and exclusive shopping areas such as the Champs Elysées, Avenue Montaigne, Place Vendome and Rue Royal, where the best brands and hotels are located.
Therefore, the best moments to enjoy the city coincide with the celebration of Paris Fashion Week, which takes place three times a year. The next edition will take place from 24 September to 2 October 2018. Book your favorite hotel now so you don’t miss the Paris Fashion Week parades, parties, kissing rooms and private and exclusive
Italy, and more specifically Rome, are important artistic, cultural and architectural references. From the Colosseum to the numerous works of Michelangelo, the Trevi Fountain or the Piazza di Spagna, every corner of Rome distills art and history, which also goes beyond fashion. In fact, some of the most luxurious and valued fashion and jewelry brands, such as Fendi and Bulgari, are based in Rome, reflecting the Renaissance opulence found throughout the city.
The “Trident”, where the famous jeweller’s shops and the workshops of the most renowned Italian designers and international luxury firms converge via Condotti, via Borgognona, via Frattina and the whole area around the Plaza de España are located: Gucci, Prada, Cavalli, Ermanno Scervino, Giorgio Armani, Versace, Dolce&Gabbana, Bottega Veneta, Ferragamo, Tod’s, Marni, Valentino, Missoni, Moschino, Alberta Ferretti…
Like Paris, it also has its own fashion week, the Altaroma Fashion Week. A must-attend event for fashion lovers visiting Rome organized twice a year (between January and February and June and July). During these days the city shows the latest trends in design on the catwalk, but also with other complementary activities spread all over Rome. The fashion experts have already reserved a place in their diary and are already thinking of a stylish hotel to stay in Rome during those days.
Madrid has been gaining its place as an international fashion reference in recent years. Trend hunters find inspiration and fresh design proposals in its streets that end up on international catwalks. Famous are its shopping areas in the Salamanca district, where the most exclusive international luxury brands and the best hotels are concentrated; Las Salesas, with the most contemporary and avant-garde designs, which aspire to turn the district into the new Golden Mile of Madrid; and Gran Vía and Calle Fuencarral, where LOEWE, Michael Kors, Victoria’s Secret and Guess bet on.
Among the city’s fashion events, the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Madrid stands out, where we can see designers such as Juan Vidal, Maria Ke Fisherman, Moisés Nieto, Ana Locking or Palomo Spain, Miley Cyrus’ favourite Spanish dressmaker, Beyoncé or Rita Ora (twice a year, in July/September and January/February). If you want to experience it in the first person and without surprises, it is advisable to book your hotel and flight or train with enough time.
