Best Photo Apps To Boost Your Instagram

Best Photo Apps To Boost Your Instagram

A couple of years ago it was all about 140 characters, the trick was the getting what you wanted to say around the 120 mark so to leave room for a hashtag and RT, now the power of the word is kind of being overshadowed a little by everything visual, or should I say Instagram, and I’m kind of loving how the platform has reignited my passion for photography, thanks in part to the amazing photo editing apps that are out there. 

I know what you are thinking social media photographs aren’t an art form, probably not always from me **I’m trying**, but I do love how inspiring Instagram can be, especially when you can see the effort people are putting into getting their images just right. It really is a platform that I’m trying to take more time and effort in, it isn’t as instant as it used to be, but I think that’s the beauty of it.

Instagram: 6 Fashion Illustrators To Follow

Instagram is more than just a photo-sharing social site, it has become a hotbed for inspiration, whether its fashion, interiors, food or beauty it is full of creative images, and lately I have been obsessed with adding fashion illustrators to my feed in the hope that their immense skill will rub off on me!!!

So, because I am obsessed I thought I would share the love and introduce my favourite 6 fashion illustrators I love following on Instagram, so you too can go ahead and fall in love with their work like me. Just click on their sketches to be taken straight to their Instagram. PaperFashion-1

@PaperFashion

New York-based Katie Rodgers is one of the most romantic illustrators with a love of high fashion ballgowns that she paints rather than draws and adorns with sequins, beads, and glitter. I really love it when she recreates red carpet looks.

I first discovered Megan after I bought one of her illustrated notebooks, which led me to stalking her on Instagram, as her high fashion sketches for the likes of Dior, Chanel and Cartier are uber-glam and so, so pretty and feminine. I think out of all the illustrators Megan is who I would love to come and graffiti my home.

sofies-2@Sofies_illustrations

Sofie is a 25-year-old illustrator from Copenhagen and I adore her haute couture illustrations. Her style is sexy and sassy and in my opinion mini works of art – I would love to print all her Instagram pics out for my wall.

@Lenaker

This Russian fashion illustrators takes inspiration from pop culture in her sketches from Rita Ora to Moschino’s Barbie collection, and I love it when she does videos showing her drawing in action.

fallintolondon@FallInToLondon

Eleni is a wonderful artist and I am so lucky to say that I have a personalised sketch of myself from her on my wall. Her illustrations are just sweet, romantic and ultra-glam. I love her portrait work but it has to be her town scenes and cherry blossoms that make me gush every time I see them.

@Clymdraws

Clym is one of my favourite London-based illustrators, I love seeing him around fashion events sketching away, just watching him is so much fun as the speed in which he captures a runway look is so impressive. Lately he has been sketching menswear fashion, but he has also worked for Harrods, Charlotte Olympia, and for the Royal Opera House. I love his work.

Do you have any fashion illustrators that you can recommend to follow on Instagram? Also don’t forget to follow me @fashionistabarbie.

Golden Globes 2015: The Best Celebrity Instagram Moments

Of course we all love the official red carpet snaps from award shows, but this year I think all the fun is going to happened on Instagram as this past year actresses and actors really have got on board and embraced the picture sharing site, I am obsessed with following Diane Kruger, Reese Witherspoon, and Kate Hudson.  It was so fun to see A-list celebs sharing all the behind-the-scenes gossip from the Golden Globes – from the make-up chair, inside the limo, on the red carpet, during the award show and of course those boozy after parties. So I thought I would share a few of my favourites so you could add them you following list ahead of the next award show.  Are you following your favourite A-listers on Instagram?
