Montreal has been named one of the world’s most elegant cities according to a new report released by fashion retailer Zalando.

“In order for a city to rank highly, we determined that it must have a thriving fashion scene, culturally and historically significant architecture, high tourism desirability, and an attractive point of entry for visitors, as first impressions matter!” said Zalando, in a release. “It must also rank highly in our expert surveys, which we sent to over 5,000 fashion and architecture experts around the world.”

The company ranked cities based on several factors including:

  • What country the city is located
  • Fashion schools in the city
  • If the city is known as a ‘fashion capital’
  • The perception of the city by fashion journalists
  • Desirability by visitors
  • Point of entry and accessibility
  • Architecture
  • Cleanliness
  • The perception of the city by architecture journalists

Montreal was ranked 31st out of 80 cities on the list. Vancouver was the only other Canadian city to make the list, placing 46th.

The top 10 most elegant cities in the world according to Zalando:

  1. Paris, France
