Vienna Emerges as a Fashion Capital
Fashion months are a cloistered industry event that sees designers display their latest creative work to a sea of press, buyers and stylists.
In the twenty-first century, Vienna ranks highly amongst the world's cities as a distinctive fashion center. Its characteristic products and sense of style compete with and complement the fashion values of other global fashion capitals including Paris, New York, London, Milan, and Tokyo.

New technologies contribute to the rapid dissemination of Vienna fashions throughout the world.
Vienna fashion studios and warehouses continue to support an active and influential local economy of young independent designers, stylists, photographers, publishers, and journalists.
