Fashion Souvenirs are not always perceived as cheap and tacky, many high-end emporiums and boutiques derive a large source of their income from the tourist trade. Fashion Souvenirs can be found on Via della Spiga or Place Vend˘me, in department stores like Harrods, Lane Crawford or Bloomingdales, at museums and galleries, at the airport or on cruise ships, or even nestled in a hard-to-find vintage store. The silk scarf in particular offers another suitable space on which to embellish the exotic and the unusual.
