Fashion Instagrammer of the year– The CFDA has finally added Fashion Instagrammer of the Year to its award categories. Eight nominees have been selected for the finals, which are starting today and will run until May 30. The winner wil be chosen by the public. To vote one can log in to CFDA.com ar ‘like’ one of the nominees on instagram.
The Fashion Instagrammer of the Year won’t share the stage with Alexander Wang, Marc Jacobs, and Joseph Altuzarra to receive the award at the ceremony, but he or she will attend the ceremony on June 2 and will take over the group Instagram for the evening.
“Instagram has become the platform for visual expression in fashion because it’s quick, easy, accessible — it’s always with you. It’s enough of a category that they [the CFDA] want to take that trend and maximize it in some way,” according to Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom to WWD.
So, for this year nominees are already been chosen, but that gives us a whole year to aprove our ‘gramming game. But, Systrom warns against making your Instas look too studied, because a successful Instagram is about capturing an everyday moment in a spontanious way, unfiltered, not a produced inauthentic,moment. Kevin said to WWD.
Take a look below are the eight nominees for this year’s Fashion Instagrammer of the Year.
