From Chanel to Dior to Balmain the potential for social buzz was exponential, and to say the final Fashion Month event took over Instagram et al, is a bit of an understatement.

1. The trends Instagram fell in love with were…
Paris fashion week
i) Transparency (particularly Valentino‘s brand of transparency)

iii) Born slip-y (see Balenciaga for inspiration).

2. The most influential list was topped by…

iv) Doutzen Kroes

3. The brand who killed it on social more than any other brand was…

Balmain! Mostly thanks to its Instagram posts of models backstage (#BalmainArmy) which suggests #squad is definitely the new #selfie.

4. Also worth noting is…
Cara Delevingne Instagram
Cara Delevingne – she drove 50% of all social engagement around Chanel’s departure lounge-themed show.
