Fashion Week has officially begun. If you’ve been keeping up with TTS, it should be obvious what this means and why we should all be watching, either from front row seats or an iPhone 6 Plus. For those of us that are in the nosebleeds of the action, it’s time to gear up those smartphones for the ultimate virtual experience from our list of fashion insiders to follow for this crazed week… in real time. We gave you our picks for Instagram and now we’re back with our other beloved app: Snapchat. Snapchat relays the moment as it’s happening. It follows us through our day or night, allowing us to piece together whatever enviable or laugh-out-loud moments we want. Bless its cyber soul, it’s the nearest substitute to actually being there. And because everyone loves a good story, we rounded up 8 natural storytellers for some stylish entertainment. From top models to fashion’s It DJs, we’ve got the spectrum covered. Let
The Hunger Games Fashion Week commence.
The former editor-in-chief of Lucky Magazine is known for many things. Her fun, edgy style, her super chic lob, her fairly new daughter that is adorable, and her current position as head of Instagram’s fashion partnerships. Given that her announcement was published on the social media app, it’s a clear indication that she’s got creds with us millenials, making her a natural at Snapchat. What we love about her on Snapchat is her relatability. She’s not all about the glitz and glamour and she wants her viewers and fans to know what’s going on in her life (and we really, really want to know too!).

New York Magazine’s The Cut is naturally the top notch choice for a New York state of mind perspective on New York Fashion Week. With full access to the best shows, events, and parties this #NYFW has to offer, you’ll want entry into their virtual world. Get the newsy, up close and personal snaps all from our favorite New York native publication guiding us through the action.

This gorgeous brit is one to follow. DJing a slew of fashion events and a client list that includes Chanel, Nike, Valentino, Topshop, and Refinery29 (she’s also opened for Diplo and Duran Duran), she’s the coveted after party gal you’re going to want to get down with.

It’s always a good idea to follow a top model around during Fashion Week. You’re guaranteed glimpses of backstage action at the most luxe shows, images from jet setting the globe, partying at star studded after parties. Enter Joan Smalls. This famed model is big at our favorite brands like Givenchy (showing here in New York!) and Salvatore Ferragamo. Since you can’t literally tag along for all the fun, you’re going to want to take a peek into one of the world’s highest paid models’ snap stories.

Clothes are beautiful, but so is, well, beauty. Sure you’ll get close to a lot of the action and stunning looks churning out this Fashion Week by following our list of fashion insiders, but we all want to see those fresh faces or painted lips, too. Byrdie Beauty is your go-to for all things hair, makeup, skin, and nails trending for Spring/Summer 2016. Because let’s face it, every girl gives a sh*t about how she looks from head to toe.

What would Fashion Week be without Leandra Medine? Certainly not as funny. The witty, charming, and fashionably eclectic blogger has rose to icon status with her eloquent humor, which we all can’t help but adore. Reading her articles and captions on Instagram are one thing, but seeing her in real time is another. Catch her galavant from show to show, snag glimpses of her cool, eccentric outfits (seriously, we want everything that chick wears), and prepare to laugh out loud in a seemingly serious time with this quirky character.

If you’re lucky, you may spot edgy, cool-girl Edie Campbell strutting down the streets with her ultra cool blonde pixie. If you’re not, follow her on Snapchat. After her start in Vogue and then alongside the Kate Moss in a Burberry campaign, the British model ascended with modeling prowess. Walking for Valentino, Chanel, and Balmain, she’s made her mark in the industry. With cheeky selfies and snaps of her rising model sister, Olympia, you’re going to want to keep up to date with the raddest model chick.

The DJ, model, and health and fitness guru hailing from the isle of Manhattan is certainly a triple threat. She founded Beautified, a mobile app that allows users to secure last-minute beauty services such as salon, spa, and gym bookings as well as DJs some of the biggest bashes we all wish we could get into. Luckily, we have her Snapchat to follow for some is-that-Karlie-Kloss-over-there!? moments. She’ll also feature some nifty workouts we could all use during the duress of fashion’s major moment.
