A Fashion Lover’s Guide to Milan Victoria Cox June 30, 2019 Travel Milan is one of the world’s leading cities when it comes to fashion. Located in Lombardy of Northern Italy, it is a must-see for both tourists and fashion-lovers alike. If you are a fashion fanatic and planning a trip abroad, here are the best stops in Milan to satisfy your style cravings: Milano Fashion Tours: From fashion workshop parties to personal shopping, Milano Fashion Tours has it covered. Through their website, tours can be booked that cover a wide range of activities in the fashion industry so you can spruce up your vacation with style. Slow-Shopping: Milanese are the ingenious creators of slow shopping-a combination of food, socialising, shopping and browsing. A good destination for slow-shopping is 10 Corso Como, a building with books, photography, fashion and design, which also features a trendy cafe and gardens. Take your time and enjoy your shopping experience at a Milanese slow-shopping destination. Coffee Breaks: Anyone can agree that shopping takes energy, and there couldn’t be a better pick-me-up than an Italian cappuchino. Take a mid-morning break from your fashion/shopping expeditions for the “best cappuchino in town,” which can be found at Pave, a stylish Milanese cafe. Cafe Napoli, Marchesi 1824, and Zaini are other hit-cafes with great Italian espresso and pastries. Palazzo Morando: It is fitting to visit a fashion museum in one of the world’s fashion capitals, and Palazzo Morando is an excellent museum destination. Formerly a palace belonging to Milanese nobles, the grounds were donated to the city in 1945 and currently showcase a host of fashion and photography exhibitions, along with a depiction of Milan’s urban and social evolution up until the 19th century. Fashion Houses: Stroll the streets of Milan’s fashion district to find only the top series of fashion houses in the world. This district is perfect for both avid buyers and window-shoppers alike. The district is divided into a series of pedestrianalized streets that are perfect for a shopping expedition or just an afternoon stroll. On the Via Montenapoleone can be found Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Versace among others. The Via Sant’Andrea houses Chanel, Armani and Hermes, while the Via della Spiga is home to Bulgari, Spigia, Dolce and Gabbana and others. On three other streets, the Via Manzoni and the Via Bigli and Gesu, one can find the oldest mansions in the area, along with the Grand Hotel et de Milan and a series of private fashion museums. Restaurants: Milan may be known for its fashion, but its food doesn’t fall short of excellent, and one cannot fully get to know a city without trying its food. Stop at a stylish restaurant for the perfect combination to your fashion expedition. Pescaria is one well-known seafood restaurant which even locals are willing to stand in long lines to attend. Erba Brusca is another excellent dining option. This restaurant allows diners to stay in touch with the land by serving meal options cooked from the restaurant’s adjoining garden. The menu changes regularly to accomodate the season’s freshest options, so visitors can stay tuned for new menu options throughout the year. Nightlife: Whether you are looking to party or just for a relaxing environment to sip your bubbly, finish your evening by attending one of Milan’s hottest nightclubs. Armani Prive is Georgio Armani’s private nightclub, which features excellent service and international dj’s. Club B38 Milano is another great evening option for fashion lover’s as it is a fashion club, restaurant and garden. The club contains several chic features such as a dance floor suspended on water to dance the night away.
