Private Tour: Discover Fashion & Design in Milan, with Expert Guide
Tour Participation Requirements
Bring your passion for fashion! Rome may be Italy's capital, but Milan is its capital of style. Design is in this city's DNA and you’ll set out to explore it all, from the creative spark of young designers to elegant shops bursting with fashions you won't see anywhere else on the planet. Except paraded down those style-drenched catwalks, of course.
"Made in Italy" are three words found on the world's most crave-worthy apparel, shoes, and accessories. Visiting a fashion design school, you'll see how this enviable reputation was built. It's all about authenticity, fine materials, and giving talented young designers the tools they need to continue a treasured design heritage while expressing themselves and creating brand-new trends.
Inspiration for students, and fashionistas, is everywhere in Milan. As you stroll into the city's fashion quarter, you'll see the major international names, from Armani to Zara, popping up along these sophisticated streets, plus hear entertaining snippets from your guide about designers and their labels. More than a fun shopping stroll, this tour ramps up your fashion IQ with every step.
Along the way, you can't help but notice that the Milanese, like most Italians, are passionate about dressing to impress. (They even have a special phrase for looking this good: la bella figura.) If you're feeling a little underdressed among this fashionable throng, no worries. You'll now know just where to pick up their style.
Chic for centuries
Milan has been a fashion center since the Middle Ages. Way back in the 16th century, the city's name was the source of the world "milaner," which eventually morphed into milliner, someone who makes hats. Today, couture is still center stage, especially when Fashion Week descends on the city twice yearly. The fashions, and hats, that walk down those runways set new trends in the fashion world.
