Thursday marks the official start of New York Fashion Week. As models sporting the newest styles for fall and winter 2014 begin to make their way down the catwalks, we caught up with Lucky Magazine (@luckymagazine) editor-in-chief Eva Chen (@evachen212). Eva keeps in close touch with her community on Instagram: “I love it when I can engage in a back-and-forth Instagram comment Q&A about the best SPF or my favorite designers of the season,” she says. “That, to me, is the new standard of fashion.”
Eva shared the people she’s most excited to follow this Fashion Week. For a look at the week through Eva’s recommendations, check out these accounts:
The Model – Soo Joo Park (@soojmooj)
“Besides having the most wickedly cool platinum blonde hair, Soo Joo has a great eye for everything—from food to fashion. She’s an ultra-chic downtown girl, yet down to earth (and funny!) as well.”
The Stylist – Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele (@carlynecerfdedudzeele)
“Lucky’s Fashion Editor at Large, this legendary stylist tends to WRITE IN ALL CAPS and punctuate her captions with Française. She gives a peek into her enviable closet (oh hi, 10,239,298 Chanel bags) and enviable lifestyle (hanging with Miley, for instance).”
The Designer – Prabal Gurung (@prabalgurung)
“High fashion meets humble—Prabal is one of the genuinely coolest guys I know, and I love that he’s interactive with his followers. He posts photos of everything from backstage exclusives and red carpet dresses to trips to his native Nepal.”
The Hairstylist– Sam McKnight (@sammcknight1)
“Ridiculously talented but with a cheeky sense of humor, Sam gives his followers a look at the backstage workings at Chanel couture… as well as his English gardening habits.”
Lucky Magazine and IMG/Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week (@mbfashionweek) are also teaming up for an InstaMeet Thursday morning. Together with Eva and a few of her favorite fashion experts, a group of Instagrammers are exploring the tents backstage and sharing their photos and videos with the #luckyinstameet hashtag.
