#TodayIMet with @timlampe and @halfgirl

In the #todayimet series, Instagrammers share the stories of meeting people in real life after discovering their work on Instagram. To see more photos and videos by @halfgirl and @timlampe, follow them on Instagram.

Young Mee Rim (@halfgirl) and Tim Lampe (@timlampe), from Copenhagen and Atlanta respectively, organized an impromptu road trip with friends in Canada this summer after following each other for two years on Instagram. “We picked Tim up at the airport and it was basically like picking up a really old friend you hadn’t seen in ages,” Young says. “A big hug and then straight on to chatting away and laughing in the car for hours and hours.”

Tim says that it’s always this easy to connect in real life with people he’s met through Instagram. “I think friendships from Instagram are so natural because you’re getting to know someone really well through their photos and captions and how they choose to document their life,” he says. “It’s always amazing to get the perspective of someone else living in a completely different part of the world.”

Meeting up with Instagram friends in real life also gives Tim the opportunity to see how they make the photos he was drawn to in the first place. “One of my favorite things is to watch how Instagrammers approach shots in the wild, so seeing Young take a pancake breakfast with fruit on top and figure out how to best Instagram it was a learning experience.”

#TodayIMet with @nana_ha and @sundaysuppers

In this series, Instagrammers share the stories of meeting people in real life after discovering their work on Instagram. To see more photos and videos by @nana_ha and @sundaysuppers, follow them on Instagram and browse the #todayimet hashtag.

Copenhagen food and travel journalist Nana Hagel (@nana_ha) landed an internship in New York City through Instagram. She had been following the Instagram images of Karen Mordechai, founder of Sunday Suppers (@sundaysuppers). “I immediately fell in love with her style,” Nana says. “I saw that she was looking for help and I knew I had to apply.”

Nana joined the team on Wednesday. “Meeting Nana from across the world and having her come to collaborate with us at the studio is one of the things I love about Instagram,” Karen says. “It really is about expanding your vision and community. It affords us the chance to meet amazing people that we wouldn’t have a chance to connect with otherwise.”

Behind the Scenes at Copenhagen Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015

To see more behind-the-scenes moments from Copenhagen Fashion Week, follow @gittestark and explore the #cphfw hashtag.

At the spring/summer 2015 shows at Copenhagen Fashion Week (@cphfw), Instagrammer Gitte Stark (@gittestark) has been applying her dramatic, somewhat melancholic style to backstage photography for V Magazine (@vmagazine). “The best part is watching the theatrical transformation of the models, seeing them rehearse and collect their thoughts before the show begins,” she says. “It makes me realize just how much work is put into staging that one moment on the runway.”

Gitte and other Instagrammers captured behind-the-scenes moments at shows by designers including Barbara I. Gongini (@barbaragongini), Henrik Vibskov (@henrikvibskov) and Mads Nørgaard (@norgaardcph). “Barbara I. Gongini is one of my favorite designers,” she says, “because of her minimalistic but extremely dramatic universe.”

“Copenhagen Fashion Week perfectly reflects its culture,” Natasha Stagg (@natasha_stagg), online editor for V Magazine, says. “It’s all about the details that slightly adjust a tried-and-true formula.”
