My Favourite Instagram Accounts

These are the accounts that I find most pleasing to my eyeballs. The ones that I stop scrolling to admire. The ones that are annoyingly good. 

Photography


If there's one thing that really pleases my eyeballs, it's a fashion editorial, in particular a fashion portrait. And these girls GET ME.

Anya Holdstock: Anya is a London based photographer. Her portraits are warm, soothing and dreamy.

Jessica Ruscoe: Photographer/Stylist/Illustrator this girl can spell those words. Lol she is actually all those things and more. Her film photography and styling gives me life.

Unconditional Magazine: Unconditional is an independent biannual magazine run by Alexandra Nataf and Ilona Hamer. Their content is beautifully uncomplicated, sleek and minimal.

 Design


These are some designers who admire and are inspired by me. Lol kidding it's 100% the other way around.

Maddy Ritchie: Maddy not only has a great name but is an amazing multidisciplinary designer currently living her best life in Austria. Her work is bold and incredibly detailed.

AM:PM: Jessica Holmes of AM:PM is a brilliant designer and collage kween. Gal loves to combine pink and red which I am so here for.

These are a collection of artists and illustrators whom I have long admired, bought from and in some lovely cases, become friends with.

Anya Brock: Anya is a Perth artist and one of the first artists that I bought from ( tbh it was a Christmas present, didn't pay for it. But my love for it is the same if not more). Her work is beautiful, colourful and moody.

Vanessa Vanderhaven: This gal is an incredible fashion illustrator whose work is scary good, like I sometimes get goosebumps. She is also an amazing illustration teacher and that is a fact cos I took her class and boy was I good. 

Kat Bak: Kat's life drawing works are so beautiful and inspiring. The minimal contour and continuous line is right up my alley.

Manjit Thapp: Manjit is a British illustrator whose wonderfully vibrant and detailed works focus on people of colour.

Inspiration

These are the main accounts that I look to for illustration inspiration. 

Fumi: This account, run by an anonymous angel doing God's work, is my secret weapon. It curates fashion editorials from all over and notes the publication it came from, the model featured and the photographer. It has really helped me to discover new models and photographers.

CLO: Run by Lauren Faye, this account is a beautiful curation of editorial and architectural photography that I find useful for both references and wonder.

Keep: Keep is another curated account that I love. This one features mainly fashion content from brands with a minimal aesthetic and sleek tailoring.
