Culturally most people in the South don't follow Miami and most of Florida.

TN and TX take the cake but cities I really can't put my finger on it.

Atlanta is trendy but their fashion to me is no different from people on the West coast and East coast

What's really funny to me is a discussion about how an entire city chooses to dress. "Atlanta is trendy"? Come on...that's silly. I'm sure each city in question has tons of people who worry about fashion and all of them have access to the latest styles. The world is a very small place in 2015 and word about trends travels very fast. It's ridiculous to say one city has more fashion sense than another.

No, I would imagine that most southerners outside of South Florida don't follow Miami. Most southerners, just like in any other region, follow the largest city that's nearest them. That's what makes Atlanta more of a capital for everything - it's the most centrally-located large southern city (Miami, Atlanta, Houston, Dallas).

Being a fashion capital consist of more than just how people dress in a city.

I agree...I was responding the comment just above mine that referred to fashion in Atlanta and folks there being trendy.

I wouldn't think there would be any significant difference in luxury shopping between cities of nearly equal size like Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, or Miami. The difference might be found in the fashion industry and how important it is in each city.

Who said they were? Raleigh and Charlotte aren't really big enough to attract much fashion attention outside of their local regions. Your comment doesn't make sense.

I said "Most southerners, just like in any other region, follow the largest city that's nearest them." People around secondary cities like Raleigh or Charlotte do pay attention to what is happening in those cities, but the real regional fashion capitals are the four largest cities.

Miami
Atlanta
Houston
Dallas

South Florida and Atlanta are very even when it comes to urban fashion.

Urban fashion? All four of them are about the same.
