Instagram is where all the cool kids are hanging out these days — and that definitely goes for clothing brands, too. If you have a fashion brand, one of the very best ways you can promote it is by having a strong presence on this platform.
According to a recent study, users engage 25% more with brand profiles on Instagram than on any other social network. Not to mention that this year, the network owned by Facebook implemented shopping features and surpassed the 1 billion users mark. Considering it’s free, for small clothing brands, there’s no better strategy than to open an account and start gathering more followers.
If you want to learn how to sell T-shirts there (like how to set up your own Instagram clothing ads), you can check out our guide by heading this way. But in this post, we’ve gathered 50 of our favourite accounts run by fashion labels. These are brands that have mastered the art of content curation and constantly update their feed with amazing images.
