These are the top four places that every fashion enthusiast should visit

With the end of this semester approaching, reward yourself with a well-earned trip to a top fashion destination that won't break the bank.

Europe is home to some of the worlds trendiest cities, teaming with designer galleries, aesthetic streets and stylised people might seem like a stretch for any fashion enthusiast, especially for those on a budget. However, visiting the worlds most fashionable attractions isn't always as expensive as you might think, here are the top four must-visit fashion capitals for any style enthusiast on a budget.

Home to the notorious design houses of Versace, Gucci and Prada, Milan is one of the four fashion capitals of the world. You'd think that experiencing Milan's fashion scene would require you to save up for a whole term, however, you couldn't be more wrong; you can get full admission into 'Fondazione Prada' and the Armani Museum 'Armani/Silos' for under €15 per person.

However, no museum will showcase Milan's full fashion potential like the streets of Milan will, where every creative goes to showcase their unique and on-trend street style looks.

2. Berlin, Germany

Our curator Matthias Harder on tour: yesterday he joined the exhibition opening by iconic fashion designer Thierry Mugler at the @mbamtl in Montreal. This retrospective reveals the multiple worlds of this irrepressible artistic figure – at once visionary couturier, director, photographer and perfumer – by revisiting his prêt-à-porter and haute couture creations. Thierry Mugler: Couturissime brings together more than 140 garments made between 1973 and 2001, as well as one hundred or so photographs by such world-renowned fashion photographers as Helmut Newton, Sarah Moon, Pierre et Gilles, David LaChapelle, Paolo Roversi and others. Matthias Harder and the curator of this show, Thierry Maxime Loriot, created an extra room to present the photographs that result from the very intense collaboration between Newton and Mugler that lasted for many years. So this is a must-see exhibition if you’re into fashion photography! #helmutnewton #mbam #MBAMmugler #MMFAmugler #MuglerMTL #MTLmoments #Mugler #ThierryMugler #manfredthierrymugler #HauteCouture #Muglerarchives #montrealfashion #montrealstyle

With its streets decorated with vivid street art and packed with an impressive collection of independent boutiques and vintage shops, Berlin is the ideal city for anyone with a weakness for vintage apparel. Vintage store Sing Blackbird, located in the leading-edge district of Neukölln, combines their assorted collection of vintage bargains from the 70s through to the 90s with a retro cafe that specialises in flavourful yet affordable vegan food.

Another must-visit for any fashion enthusiast is the Helmut Newton Foundation; where a permanent display of the classic fashion photographer Helmut Newton’s photographs are showcased, alongside a captivating collection of work by director Mario Testino and former editor-in-chief of Elle and Vogue Italia, Carla Sozzani.

3. Lisbon, Portugal

After being rated the ninth-cheapest city in Europe by the Post Office in 2018, Lisbon is should definitely be on the top of any student's list of places to visit this summer, especially of those who idolise innovative design.

Visit the Design and Fashion Museum also known as MuDe with free admission, situated in the heart of the city, flaunting Portuguese design enthusiast Francisco Capelo's 1200 couture piece collection. The collection includes everything from a timeless Christian Dior landmark from 1947 to the infamous Jean Desses gown that actress Renee Zellweger wore to the 2001 Oscars.

4. Copenhagen, Denmark

Known for its innate Scandinavian design and iconic sense of aesthetics along with its quirky cafe's, indie boutiques and effortlessly contemporary attitude, Copenhagen is definitely a destination you have to visit this summer.

If you're a Scandinavian fashion fanatic then Copenhagen is the perfect city break for you; home to an array of classic Scandinavian stores such as COS, & Other Stories plus an unmissable Acne Studios Archive where you can shop the brand's collections from previous years. However, Copenhagen easily caters for fashion fiends on a budget; with up-and-coming brands such as Ganni providing modern easy-to-wear designs at purse friendly prices, while locally popular brand By Malene Birger brings you minimal wardrobe essentials.

Last but not least, no trip to Copenhagen is complete without a stop at Storm. While being known internationally as one of the most contemporary lifestyle and fashion stores in Europe, Storm is a lot more than a clothing store, embracing the city's unique style by carrying an impressive selection of beauty products, music, magazines, books and featuring free exciting and inspirational exhibitions in-store.
