Like all great cities, Vancouver fashion has high-end, internationally-acclaimed designers for fashionistas willing to spend big money. Downtown Vancouver's major shopping district--centered around the crossroads of W Georgia and Granville Street--is ground zero for high-end clothes and accessories.

It's home to the fabulous fashion-only department store Holt Renfrew and to the Downtown Bay, the only Bay department store in Vancouver to feature The Room, a collection of cutting-edge designer fashion. High-end stores for brands like Versace, Coach, and Louis Vuitton are all within walking distance, too.
