Answer:

Cities like New York and Milan, and for that matter Paris and London, have long been major cultural centers. What this means is that they exert a major influence nation and worldwide on fashion, the arts, and other aspects of culture. Major fashion design companies are almost invariably based in these cities, which also feature large arts communities and publishing houses. They are also (with the exception of Milan) centers of broadcasting and especially the advertisement industry. They are the locations for all of the major fashion shows each year. So these cities naturally set fashion, lifestyle, and other trends for their countries and the world at large.
