Below are five destinations to make the list that are also celebrating their respective Fashion Weeks in the upcoming months:

  • Cleveland, Ohio -- Who would have thought it? When Fashion Week in the USA comes up it's always New York that springs to mind, but Cleveland has its very own Fashion Week Cleveland (FWC) taking place in the first week of May, timed in between New York and Los Angeles' industry events. Established in 2002 by the Cleveland Fashion Institute, the event showcases some of the hottest new designers from across the country, and comes complete with plenty of glam in the form of parties, lectures, runway shows, and special events.

With couturiers like Issey Miyake and Yohji Yamamoto ranking among the style heavyweights, the country continues to produce more widely popular designers such as Junya Watanabe and Rei Kawakubo. Much like the country itself, Japanese style tends to be modern, cutting edge, quirky, sleek, and elegant. Search and compare cheap flights to Tokyo.
  • Dubai -- More known for glitzy hotels, wild nights out, and miles of beaches, Dubai has also been making a name for itself as a shopping destination in the last few years.

Apart from beautiful local markets that are particularly famous for gold and silver jewellery, it's also home to giant shopping malls that contain some of the world's most famous department stores including Galleries Lafayette from Paris, Saks Fifth Avenue from the US, Harvey Nichols from the UK, and an absolute ton of quirky, independent designers from all over the world. Search and compare cheap flights to Dubai.
