Do you live and breathe fashion? I mean what’s not to love – Paris Fashion Week, New York Fashion Week, the glitz, the glamour, and of course, the clothes. If you are dreaming of working in fashion one day, here are ten amazing influential fashion editors you should start following on Instagram now.
Kat Collings (@katcollings), Editor-in-Chief of Who What Wear
Why you should follow Kat: Who What Wear (WWW) revolutionized the fashion industry, taking celebrity style and shoppable content to the next level. Kat in particular is one of my favorite editors to follow because she believes in investing yourself into things that matter to you and loves being surrounded by supportive women (as quoted here). On her Insta, you will find cover shoots for WWW, as well as Kat’s Office Fits outfits, and images from her personal travels.
Milli Midwood (@millimidwood), Editor-in-Chief of Cosmo Middle East
Why you should follow Milli: Milli grew up in Dubai and gives you a great look at what it is like to be a fashion editor abroad. She has done some really cool journalistic articles and interviews, such as a recent one on impostor syndrome and now, the weird behaviors we experience in lockdown. Check out her Werk Looks highlights for some cool office outfit inspo.
Laura Brown (@laurabrown99), Editor-in-Chief of Instyle
Why you should follow Laura: Born in Australia and now living in New York, Laura recalls the days of sneaking into fashion shows with a disposable camera. Laura’s Instagram is not just beautiful people in beautiful clothes, she’s really funny and a lot of her posts make you laugh out loud.
Julia Starr-Jamois (@sarrjamois), Fashion Editor-at-Large for British Vogue
Why you should follow Julia: In addition to being Editor-at-Large for British Vogue, Julia is also a fashion stylist. I not only enjoy her fashion shoot posts, but also her personal style, which involves a lot of clashes of textures. She is French/Moroccan/Senegalese, which influences a lot of her work.
Nikki Ogunnaike (@nikkiogun), GQ Deputy Fashion Director
Why you should follow Nikki: As GQ’s Deputy Fashion Director, Nikki remembers growing up with her mother in retail, watching her dad dress up for church, and her sister moving to New York to work in newspapers and magazines. She knew she wanted to follow in her sister’s footsteps but in a fashionable way, and has become a person of influence when it comes to menswear.
Aemilia Madden (@aemiliafay), Senior Fashion Editor at The Zoe Report
Why you should follow Aemilia: Rachel Zoe changed fashion styling, and Aemilia is the Senior Fashion Editor at Zoe’s online fashion publication, The Zoe Report. You can expect some gorgeous fashion photos on Aemilia’s Insta. I also recommend watching her Ask Me Anything Stories.
Lorraine Candy (@sundaytimeslorraine), Luxury Content Director for The Sunday Times and Editor-in-Chief for The Sunday Times Style
Why you should follow Lorraine: In addition to being the Luxury Content Director of The Sunday Times and the Editor-in-Chief of @theststyle (The Sunday Times Style), Lorraine is also a parenting columnist at @thestmagazine. I also love her podcast, Postcards from Midlife, which she co-hosts with Trish Halpin. If you decide to follow her on Insta: her dog is adorable, too!
Christine Centenera (@christinecentenera), Fashion Director at Vogue Australia
Why you should follow Christine: I first came across Christine’s outfits on Pinterest, and have been in love with her style ever since. She is also the Co-Founder of @wardrobe.nyc and a fashion stylist. She has styled some great names in fashion such as Cate Blanchett and Naomi Campbell.
Dana Oliver (@_danaoliver), Beauty Directory at Yahoo Lifestyle
Why you should follow Dana: In addition to being Beauty Director at Yahoo Lifestyle, Dana is also the blogger behind @beautyforbreakfast. I love her colorful Instagram photos. If you are looking for nail inspo, Dana is definitely one to follow.
