Aux Villes Du Monde is the name that brings together the most iconic luxury department stores in the world, all in one place.
The AVDM stores are more than high-end shops; over the years, even centuries, they have made history, becoming true landmarks of the social and economic life of a city – and sometimes of the entire country.

The AVDM stores have marked changing times. Offering more than just shopping, they have been the forerunners of fashion trends, narrowing the gap with distant cultures, enhancing local excellence, and above all, they have embodied the values of the society they belong to – both yesterday and still today.
The AVDM stores are unique places and models of great architecture which share common values: commitment to excellence, incentive to innovation and a vision of the future that has always stretched far beyond the walls of a shop.
