New York and LA. Big gap, then Miami.

No other US city is really known for fashion. Fashion has never been Americas stronghold.

Toronto and Montreal would probably be up there by North American standards.

After those, I don't see any US city as a fashion capital, maybe more fashion forward I guess....

I think Dallas atleast deserves honorable mention thanks to Neiman Marcus. It flies under the radar a bit but fashion and luxury retail are serious business there.

I don't remember using the word mecca and I certainly never suggested it was in the same tier as New York. But I live in Miami and if this city is a fashion capital then Dallas isn't far behind IMO.

NYC is obviously #1, but if you think it and Los Angeles are the only cities worth mentioning there's no point in participating in a top 10 discussion.

Was going to say — I don’t even think we have 10 fashion capitals. Outside of NY and LA I don’t think too many people look to American cities for fashion. Miami would be a good contender for #3 though.

I wonder why? I guess it’s just doesn’t matter to the culture of this country.
I noticed when I lived in the suburbs that it doesn’t matter what you wear or what you look like when you spend your whole day in the car, and America is 90%+ suburbia. A lot of times people don’t need to dress for the weather, or even get dressed at all. People deadass roll out of bed and go to Walmart or whatever in their pajamas. And I’m willing to bet that there are many parts of America where it’s common to even go shopping for clothes at Walmart too.
Chain stores also dominate most of America which leads to less originality.

Fashion also seems to be associated with femininity in the American society for some reason, which makes no sense because men wear clothes too! But it seems that this is changing.
