It comes as no surprise that the birth of hip-hop, graffiti culture and streetwear comes from New York. Also known as the Big Apple, the city has created more number of iconic streetwear labels than any other city in the world - from the classic old school legends like Supreme and ALIFE straight to contemporary visionaries like Alexander Wang, Public School and Opening Ceremony.
It's not just the brands which make NYC one of the top fashion cities in the world, the city is home to spawned countless trends, aesthetics and subcultures, from the heritage Americana to normcore and street goth. The fashion week is amongst the biggest events in the city, and the Capsule and Market Week trade shows make it a significant place for business, too.
