Milan is famous as a centre for design and for finance, but perhaps the area most synonymous with Milan is Fashion. The rich and famous, great and good all flock to Milan to keep abreast of the latest fashions and trends where the turnaround from catwalk to high street window can be only a small matter of weeks.
With designer names such as Armani, Prada, Boss, Fendi, Tacchini and Versarce being common place here, the shopping boutiques are resplendent with chic apparel and enviable accessories. The exclusive designer boutiques are to be found in what’s known as the golden square on streets such as Via della Spiga, Via Manzoni, Via Sant’Andrea, Via Montenapoleone, Gallerie Vittorio Emanuele II, and with more mainstream cheaper boutiques on Corso Buenos Aries.
