7 Indie Instagram Designers You Can Actually Afford
The days of only being able to buy one of a kind pieces from designers like Gucci and Balenciaga are over. The power of Instagram and social media has made it possible for designers to make and market themselves without having to be recognized by magazines and big retailers.
Instagram is a mecca for marketing, especially when it comes to selling super unique and edgy designs. A look that always pops off on Insta is the 90s grunge & girly style. These designers have perfected this style and bring a newness to the classic look. Bringing back patched denim, hand painted items, and snake skin corset bralettes, these designers know what you want — trust me.
