The Best of the Elite Fashion in a One Square KilometerIf Milan is the capital of the fashion world, then the Golden Square (Quadrilatero d'Oro) is its most sacred part. Every fashion week, or fashion and design event in Milan begins here. Here, the most expensive and precious clothes, bags and jewelry are sold, along with perfumes, shoes and furniture.
There are also quite a few design and architecture stores and fancy delicatessens, but the area is first and foremost, filled with luxury boutiques and is considered one of the most prestigious and expensive luxury shopping areas in the world. There are shops and boutiques of all the leading brands and designers in the world. If you're not here, you don't exist – and that's what Dolce and Gabbana, Prada, Valentino, Roberto Cavalli, Versace, Armani, Missoni, Chanel, Michael Kors and many others know. Some of them hold several shops and boutiques here.
In September, fashion week is celebrated for spring and in March there is the autumn fashion week. Design Week is also held here, usually at the beginning of April.
