There’s something inspiring about shopping in another city— the new sites, rich histories and unique street styles of a place often have you flying home with an entirely new wardrobe.

Whether it’s purchasing your first designer bag from one of the world’s most iconic fashion houses on the Champs-Élysées, getting fitted for a custom made suit with a hot cup of chai in Old Delhi or discovering a rare vintage find in a shop tucked down the back lanes of Florence, there are, quite literally, a world of fashion experiences to be had.

Below, the style savant’s guide the world’s best fashion destinations.

 Triangle d’Or, Paris

Paris is the obvious choice for anyone with even the slightest interest in fashion.

From iconic designer shopping avenues like the Avenue des Champs Elysées to the ornate La Galeries Lafayette and the independent boutiques of Le Marais, you won’t run out of places to shop.

However, for those dreaming of that typical Parisian shopping (or window shopping) experience, you can’t mis the iconic Triangle d’Or in the 8th arrondissement.

Formed by Avenue Montaigne, Avenue George V and Rue Francois 1er, this is a mecca of flagship fashion houses and haute couture.

Plus, when you’re all shopped out, there’s all the enviably chic French street style to take in.

Via Dei Serragli, Florence

Milan might be Italy’s most famous fashion capital but Florence is a true artisan destination.

Head to the picturesque Oltrarno district, located along the river Arno, to find high quality leather, linen and jewellery stores.

Most of the artisan workshops and boutiques are found on the pretty Via Dei Serragli, where it’s well worth spending an afternoon to find your new favourite accessory.

Shimokitazawa District, Tokyo

Head to Tokyo’s bohemian heart in the Shimokitazawa District for an amazing variety of vintage and streetwear stores.

The district’s second-hand boutiques are filled with all sorts of rare vintage clothing, as well as books, records and homewares.

Vintage lovers are going to need to pack an extra suitcase.

Chandni Chowk, Delhi

Chandhi Chowk is not only one of the oldest and busiest markets in Delhi but one of the best places to buy fabrics and silks.

While you might have to push your way through the crowds to sort through the piles of fabrics, you’re unlikely to find materials like this anywhere else in the world.

Upper East Side, New York City

When it comes to fashion, New York City offers almost everything you can imagine.

However, there’s something about those department stores that feel so very American.

Embrace your inner Blair Waldorf and head to the Upper East Side for an afternoon of shopping at Barneys and Saks 5th Avenue.

It’s shopping experience every fashion girl just has to have.

King’s Road, London

Home to iconic British brands like Erdem, Mary Quant and Vivienne Westwood, fashion doesn’t get more British than King’s Road in the London borough of Chelsea.
