Dubai, Johannesburg, New Delhi: World Fashion Capitals?

AUSTIN, Texas (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Paris and Milan have always been fashion capitals, but stylish off-the-radar cities like Dubai, Johannesburg, and New Delhi are holding their own.

The Global Language Monitor, a Texas-based company that analyzes the latest trends in word usage around the world, has just announced it’s list of top 30 fashion cities, and surprisingly, cities such as Singapore, Johannesburg, South Africa, and Sydney, Australia, are becoming more stylish by the minute.

Other places that make the couture cut include...

  • Shanghai, which competes with Hong Kong for the title of leading fashion city in China.

  • Santiago, Chile, which leads Latin America with its fab fashions.

  • Prague, Czech Republic, which is quickly becoming a rising center for style.

  • And Stockholm, Sweden, the first Scandinavian city on the list.

    But while odd cities made the ranks, classic fashion hotspots like New York, London, Paris, Rome, Milan, and Los Angeles still top the list.
