Dubai, Sao Paulo, Krakow: World Fashion Capitals?

AUSTIN, Texas (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Milan and New York are bonafide fashion capitals, but off-the-radar cities like Dubai, Sao Paulo, and Krakow are quickly becoming style meccas.

The Global Language Monitor, a company that analyzes word usage trends around the world, has announced its list of the top 30 fashion cities, and some unexpected places made the cut.

Sao Paulo, Brazil, and Hong Kong cracked the top 10, and Dubai, Mumbai, Berlin, and Santiago, Chile, aren’t far behind.

Krakow, Poland, holds an increasing style niche in Middle Europe, while Stockholm, Sweden, is THE place for fashion in Scandinavia.

Sydney and Melbourne both represent for Australian fashion, while Barcelona and Madrid represent for Spain.

Mexico City, in at No. 30, makes it onto the list for the first time ever.

But while surprising cities made the ranks, the “Big Five” – Milan, New York, Paris, Rome, and London – still hold top honors and continue to dominate global fashion.
