A ranking that has been done each year (except last year, because 2013) for well over half a decade. Also has been widely cited as the top think-tank on fashion, I suppose.

1. New York (back to being first in the world)
4. Los Angeles (highest rank ever for Los Angeles)
19. Miami (expected)
25. Dallas (expected)
29. Chicago
32. Toronto
33. Vancouver
34. Las Vegas (expected)
40. Boston
41. Mexico City
42. Houston
46. Atlanta
48. Montreal
50. San Francisco
53. Austin

New York Takes Top Global Fashion Capital Title from London, edging past Paris | The Global Language Monitor

Poor Washington, perhaps will debut next year but Washington fashion week and fashionable galas in general could use a lot of work before it quantifies the accolades globally.

According to new research released today by the Global Language Monitor, an Austin-based data-research company that catalogs trends in word usage, New York is the reigning fashion capital of the world.

Over the course of three years the Global Language Monitor tracked 250,000 blogs, print outlets, and social media channels, looking for buzzwords associated with haute couture, ready-to-wear, and fashion.

It then looked at the frequency and contextual usage of the words, creating a set of data able to rank global fashion cities.

New York City, therefore, showed up more than Paris or London in relation to words like fashion, fashionable, best designers, street style
-- but it was a narrow win: New York City bet Paris by 0.5per cent.

Wow LA at Number 4!

Nice to see New York back at the top after 2012 and 2011 we were behind London.

Yeah primarily because one summer they had the Royal Wedding and the next summer they had the Olympics. There was a lot of fashion buzz there for two years straight but most had speculated New York would regain first position again.

Have you been to San Francisco? Fashion is definitely not a priority there, which is fine.

For real, Boston is very blue collar, despite is snotty attitude. Chicago as well.

Determining a rank based on "buzz words" placed on blogs? I can't think of anything more arbitrary.

It's pretty clear that the only cities with notable fashion industries/economies are LA and NY. Other cities may have little niches, but these two cities are so predominate in the US that discussing other cities seems a bit silly/homerish.

That's not to say many other cities do not have a strong consumer base for high-fashion, but as far as a robust designer industry, that's VERY rare.
