How Did London Fashion Week Score In The Social Media Stakes?

We give the lowdown on which brands, supermodels and FROW fixtures came out on top...

Come fashion month, the global media attention falls on the four sartorial capitals of the world - New York, London, Milan and Paris.

And this year, social media coverage was stepped up a notch as there was a major new component involved.

The recent launch of Instagram Stories and Instagram Live enabled bloggers, journalists and celebrities to share the live action via their feed for the very first time. This allowed designers to showcase their autumn/winter '17 collections, give exclusive behind-the-scenes footage and ultimately make the audience feel a part of the world renowned event.

Celebrities and digital influencers could also share intimate moments with their followers from selfies on the FROW to a rare glimpse at the after-party action.

And now, new data has dropped enabling us to look at the real impact the social media giant made on fashion month as we know it.
