  • Staying in New York, London, Milan and Paris? Check out the world’s most fashionable HOSTELS at fashion’s Big Four cities
  • Have a real fashion week experience by ditching stuffy hotels for social hostels

Going to any major fashion week can put an expensive whole in the silk pocket of even the most flush fashionista – but there are fashion-forward boutique accommodation options that won’t break the bank, even if you go last minute.

But Hostelworld has uncovered high-fashion accommodation tips for those looking for a more friendly experience while not flashing the cash – and the savings made could even get you flights between the Big Four cities if you budget wisely.
