Milwaukee in Vogue for helping make Rust Belt shine

MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee’s industrial history has received recognition from an unexpected source: Vogue Magazine.

The fashion and lifestyle publication featured the city among four former industrial centers in the Midwest in a travel article highlighting cities that are “making America’s Rust Belt shine again.”

Widely-known brands like Harley-Davidson and recent national attention for local chefs are among the factors that put Milwaukee in Vogue’s spotlight.

Vogue officials had this to say about Milwaukee:

“Located on the western shores of Lake Michigan and often called the beer capital of the world, Milwaukee is much more than its Pabst and Miller roots. Discover how America’s Dairyland is playing host to an emerging culinary and microbrewery culture, rivaling even the largest of its city neighbors.”
