New York is one of the most important fashion capitals of the World. It is famous as a result of its creativity, how authentically multicultural it is, and its unrivalled capitalist glow. Its cosmopolitan personality has generated eras of stylistic splendour that has attracted the top fashion goddesses. The history of New York is a faithful reflection of what is going to become of the fashion world of tomorrow, and this charming city is currently hosting two exhibitions that are attempting to reflect the history of New York fashion as well as what is to come thanks to globalisation, incessant cultural exchanges between this city and the rest of the world, and constant innovation. We are referring to the Notorious and Notable: 20th Century Women of Style and the Japan Fashion Now exhibitions.
