smile and the fashion world smiles with you #fashagrams

Smile and the whole world smiles with you, and when our top designers strike a smile, we can't help but beam. We love Instagram for providing us not only with beautifying filters (#hollaatbrannanalways ♥), but we also love it for its snippets into people's worlds, dreams, inspirations and aspirations. Here are the top 5 designers to follow on Instagram. There's taking a selfie, and then there's taking a SELFIE as fashion royalty. Get tagging!

  • choupette_chanel

    Technically not a designer, but more powerful in the fash industry than any of us could ever hope to be - it's King Karl's kitty, Choupette. More than a spoilt pussy, she is a witty and elegant cultural commentator, just like her Daddy Karl.One of her top quotes includes a Valencia-filtered "I am Chanel, you are H&M" #knowyourplace kinda put-downs. Miaow! 



    Forget #selfies! It's all about the #celfies! #CHANEL

    #Idon'tspeakItalianbutIdospeakMoschino Jeremy Scott's inimitable take on colour, splash and fash make his Instagram a delectable mix of photographs. There's leopard print, there's Miley Cyrus, there's Rihanna (because where isn't she?) and there is lots and lots of Moschino - personal as well as fan art. Oh, and Hello Kitty! Oh, this Instagram is so much fun!

    Kim Jones, Menswear Style Director at Louis Vuitton, has us both giggling and ogling at his Instagram.  His dogs are unbelievably cute and silly, and the moments that capture his imagination capture our breaths. From landscapes from London to Austin, Kim Jones also shows us archived hits from his own personal collection of vintage and his current personal inspirations. A breath of fresh fashion air from a true classic!
