Yeah I love Austin and I lived in the Austin area for 8 years, But I definately have to give it to ATL on this one. Lets be serious here ATL is starting to get known for its upscale shopping and right now Austin cannot compare. Granted, Domain is gonna be Awesome even though I dont live there anymore. But if I were to compare Austin to someon else in shopping, it would be Charlotte. Why dont we start an Austin vs Charlotte in upscale shopping thread?

According to wikipedia (which means it should be taken with a grain of salt) the four fashion capitals of the world are Paris, Milan, London, and New York.

Yeah those seem to be resonable fashion cities. But you're right, it is wikipedia.

I don't consider Dallas a fashion capial, I just think it's not lacking upscale stores as many people think.

Do you think many people think so? I certainly don't...Dallas' shopping is fabulous.
My cousin has a daughter at SMU that she visits often...seems like lately every time I see something cool that she's wearing and ask her where she got it, she answers "Dallas".

Many people do think so, and the main reason is because it is located in Texas.
