Before Instagram, fashion fans had to wait months for magazines or newspapers to publish runway shots to see new looks from their favorite designers. These days, of course, that’s all changed: fashion bloggers post coverage to social media immediately—and garner followings that rival those of the major fashion magazines. Just in time for New York Fashion Week (February 9–17), here are some of the influential Instagrammers you can count on to cover all the major shows. Check out some of their sample posts below, and then follow them for more stylish fun.
