Fashion and Food News to Know This Week: Instagram Edition

I know what you’re thinking: there’s an Instagram edition? Believe it or not, there’s a TON of Instagram related news floating around these days, many of which relate to these two industries we eat, breathe and sleep.

Here’s what’s a-happenin’:

A pop-up restaurant in Soho, London (not NYC) is now allowing guests to Instagram their photos in exchange for free food. All they have to do is use the hashtag #BirdsEyeInspiration. But beware, Brits. It’s all part of a larger marketing campaign. (Standard)

Perhaps the most ridiculous (and hilarious) news we’ve read so far this week: Jezebel brilliantly pokes fun at how uptight Instagram can be sometimes because, apparently, illustrations of nipples are just SO taboo. Just ask Grace Coddington.

Even more social media as currency news (and in London, AGAIN): Weight Watchers just launched a pop-up cafe where, you guessed it, people can share via social media in exchange for free food. Guess it’s safe to say that this is definitely a digital trend to keep your eyes on. (PSFK)

Fashion insiders, have you heard that CFDA announced a new category for their awards? That’s right, Fashion Instagrammer of the Year is now a thing! Here are the lucky nominees.

Did you know Taste The Style hosted its first InstaMeet with lifestyle brand, Zio & Sons? If you didn’t, we apologize for having induced FOMO at this time, but please sign up to our newsletter so you don’t miss out again! We’ll be announcing winners to our photo contest this week, plus will be sharing photos from Condé Nast Traveler as well as a video shot by our friend, Tara Sgroi. Don’t forget to check back later in the week. Until then, here are the amazing Instagrammers who joined us.

And in not really relating to Instagram but still utterly absurd news, meet Underfinger, a spankin’ new hidden restaurant in Chinatown that you will have a really tough time getting into. Oh, and there’s a no pictures policy which, as Instagram addicts, is a huge turn off for us. Womp, womp. (Infatuation)
