Italian fashion

Italy is one of the leading countries in fashion design, alongside others such as France, USA, Great Britain and Japan. Fashion has always been an important part of the country’s cultural life and society, and Italians are well known for their attention of dressing-up well; “la bella figura”, or good impression, remains traditional in the Italian way of living! Italian design became prominent during the 11th–16th centuries, when artistic development in Italy was at its peak.
