10 Instagram Accounts You Need to Follow for Fashion Week

Photo Cred: Paige Wilber

Fashion Week: It’s what all of us ardent fashion aficionados long for. The clothes, the shoes, the bags, the hair! All of us long to be there, to be in arms length of the excitement. We wish we could snap memorable moments such as the epic Zoolander finale at Valentino or catch close-ups of the most vogue editors and models making the streets their runway in between shows. But unfortunately, for the large majority of us we’re verboten from the enticing frenzy that is Fashion Week. So instead, we scroll blogs and Instagram feeds to nourish our fix. Instagram offers us the immediacy we demand, especially in exhilarating times. We want to know what’s happening before it’s even occurred. But when there are millions of accounts churning out mediocre content, how do you know where to look? We’re here to solve this problem. Fashion Week is a special time, therefore you need curated material that meets your needs. That’s why we rounded up 10 of our must-follow Instagrams for this Fashion Week. And because we already know you follow Cara, Gigi, and Leandra, we came up with some more low-key, slightly more under the radar names and accounts that are ones to look out for.


A GUY NAMED PATRICK

When your resume consists of co-founding the underground dinner club Spring Street Social Society and creating a website called The Liquor Cabinet, you pique our interest. When you throw a first ever CFDA award for Fashion Instagrammer of the Year into the mix? Well, then you have our attention. @aguynamedpatrick is an iPhone-only documenter, which is part of what makes his account so damn impressive. With beautiful food and scene photography it’s no wonder he has 398k followers. I mean the guy is a natural. But what’s even more awing are his inviting Fashion Week images from Paris to New York. Based in the Big Apple, this is the guy to follow for a New Yorker’s perspective through an iPhone lens.


LE21EME

In case you didn’t know, “this is NOT a Street Style Blog.” Adam Katz Sinding would like for you to know that. The man behind the popular site and Instagram, @le21eme, is more like a photojournalist reporting the styles from the streets during Fashion Week and beyond.  Not only that, the photographer has been commissioned by the likes of Style.com (now Vogue Runway) and W Magazine. The guy clearly has a great eye. He finds the beauty in the ordinary and the eclectic, which is why @le21eme is the account to stream for killer (forgive me, Adam) street style.


SUSIE BUBBLE

She’s cute, she’s stylish, and she’s fun. Susanna Lau is a TTS-approved triple threat. With bangs as infamous as Anna Wintour’s bob and a distinct, vibrant style, this British fashion blogger has made a name for herself since her start in 2006 with her blog Style Bubble (the girl has her own Wiki page). Praised by household names such as Christopher Kane and Nanette Lepore and featured in Elle, Vogue UK, and W magazines, Lau is a certified fashion insider. Make sure to follow @susiebubble for all access to the best of the best shows and more from this upcoming Fashion Week. She’ll bring you everywhere with her, and I mean everywhere that matters. You’ll also want to see those funky fresh getups she dons too.


LANDON NORDEMAN

Looking at Landon Nordeman’s Instagram is like looking at the world through a magnifying glass. Everything is as up close and personal as it gets and it’s simply majestic. The colors, the intimacy. It almost feels intrusive, yet you love it. Nordeman, a legendary photographer who began his photography career as an intern at National Geographic has landed spots in The New York Times and Town and Country. Naturally, the @landonnordeman account has an editorial feel, though executed in a unique style. You feel as if you’re standing right in front of Kendall Jenner at Marc Jacobs or directly behind the iconic Grace Coddington (shown above, duh). Frankly, following @landonnordeman is the closest you’ll get to feeling as if you’re in the midst of the action.


OPI

Beauty looks aren’t just about lipsticks and updos. Nails hold a noble place in the beauty realm and rightfully so. Think about the nail art craze that’s generated a demand for salons specializing in such artistry. Your nails are noticed. Whether it be for the reach of your green juice or running your hand along a gorgeous mohair sweater, they’re in the line of vision of many around you. Everyone values pretty paws, even designers. That’s why we’re following @opi_products this Fashion Week. Chosen to manicure the models of Jeremy Scott and Rodarte, OPI has pretty elite clientele. Did we mention our TTS founder @cyndiramirez will be taking over their insta this Fashion Week? Even more of a reason to give them a follow.


 

NY DOORMAN

We all want an invite to Alexander Wang’s infamous wild afterparty, or any party for that matter. We want to mingle and be seen and shot with hot models, designers, socialites, and editors (which we would then proceed to upload all documentation onto our own profiles for glorification). Sadly, we don’t all have the luxury to be invited or suave capability to even sneak in. @nydoorman will grant you access, to his Instagram at least. A former finance guy Michael Tommasiello gave it up for the fast life behind the velvet ropes. He’s partied with DJ Tiesto, Paris Hilton, and Gigi Hadid. But the nightlife pro doesn’t stop there. He’s been led into the high end of things with seats at fashion shows and after parties (Jeremy Scott’s for example). Give him a follow for your own cyber invite to the hottest parties. It’ll save you a hangover.


BFA

On Instagram, images certainly matter and that’s the concept behind global photo and video agency BFA.  Shooting some pretty exclusive moments ranging from festivals, parties, dinners, and award shows, BFA gets some of the highest quality shots to any and all events of reputation. @bfa invites you into their photo exhibition for some of the top fashion shows, fashion parties, and street style that Instagram has ever been graced with. Feast your eyes on their feed. They’ll be posting some regrammable pics for sure.


MICA ARGANARAZ

Sometimes, fashion shows are star studded. Supermodels make an appearance on the catwalk for the first time in a while or social media/reality show celebrities turned models take the spotlight for a large majority of shows. But what about the unfamiliar faces that trail behind them? Well, they’re giving the Kendalls and Karlies a run for their money and we’re telling you these are the ones to look out for. Take Mica Arganaraz for example. This androgynous, Freja-looking babe has been in campaigns for Dior, Givenchy, Zara, Sandro, and Prada. She has also made her face recognizable in some pretty major shows like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, Isabel Marant, and Lanvin. The shaggy haired newbie (her first show was SS 15) hailing from Argentina is making her way to top model status. Recruited for some of the biggest shows, you’re going to want to stalk her account (@micarganaraz) for a model’s take on the highly anticipated fashion shows of the season.


REFINERY 29 FASHION

Refinery29 is known to cover a range of cultural and lifestyle topics from cities like New York, Chi-town, and London in a youthful, cheeky writing style. With fun, bright photos of street style and editorials, this newsletter formatted website will be hitting the shows with front row access. A millennial targeted demographic is their reach and we’re in the same boat, so it’s only fitting that we follow to see what they see this Fashion Week. Make sure to give @r29fashion a follow for a more relatable perspective on the front lines.


KATE FOLEY

I’ll admit I typically look at fashion shows through the lens of bloggers and online publications. So when stumbling upon Kate Foley, the former buyer of Opening Ceremony and now solo in consulting and styling work (which she achieves with artistic prowess I might add), it was clear that she is an absolute must for a perspective on fashion’s most anticipated event. To see the posts of a stylist is like a prophetic vision of what is going to be most covetable once the looks are translated into stores. That’s why @katefoley is the account to check out for the perspective of an ensemble guru. Outfit inspo included.


BONUS
