We are, of course, talking about London, England. Let’s have a cup of tea and discuss why London is a stylish destination. London is well known not only for its history but for fashion as well. Besides the annual London Fashion Week, you can admire the street fashion in the city, and the artistic monuments. Every year London welcomes tourists from all over the world. London is also known to be an expensive city, so the savvy traveling fashionista should be prepared for financial culture shock. Not only will you be visiting famous places such as Big Ben, the Tower Bridge, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Trafalgar Square....but who knows? You might see Queen Elizabeth or Kate Middleton greeting people somewhere in the city. Do not forget your camera and your map of the city. There are many local restaurants to choose from, if all of the shopping makes you hungry! Where to go for shopping in London? Let’s start with the Village at Westfield, which has 40 luxury boutiques such as Louis Vuitton, Mulberry, Burberry, and Prada. You will also find Tom Ford, Chloe, Valentino, and many others on Sloane Street, which is internationally recognized as one of the world’s most exclusive stylish destinations. In the heart of the city, you will find The Royal Exchange, a luxury shopping arcade. The Dover Street Market and Bond Street in Mayfair are also must-sees for savvy shoppers. If you are looking for shops such as Zara and H&M… you’ll find those at Mall Wood Green and Westfield Shopping Center.
