The eternal city is the heart of Italy's culture and architecture, but one thing that many people tend to forget is that Rome is also the city where the greatest Made In Italy brands were born. Many of the most important high fashion Maisons such as Fendi, Valentino and Bulgari were born here. Workshops whose work was appreciated all over the world, only to be supplanted by the arrival of the prêt-à-porter that shifted the creative poles of fashion to other cities.
But also many of the greatest professionals among designers and tailors have chosen to train at the best schools in the capital, stealing secrets from the marvelous city and allowing themselves to be inspired by its wonders: Maria Grazia Chiuri (creative director for Dior) , Pierpaolo Piccioli (defined by some as Valentino's heir), Alessandro Michele (creative director for Gucci), Gianbattista Valli (Roman doc) and Frida Giannini, just to name a few.
To shopping, the famous "Tridente" which includes Via Condotti, Via Borgognona and Via Frattina is definitely not to be missed: winding its way from Piazza di Spagna, the Trident is known for hosting the most luxurious clothing brands but also jewelers, such as Bulgari, Hermes, Tiffany, Versace or even the famous multi-brand store Gente Roma, a reference point for enthusiasts.
