30 Fashion Designers + Brands on Twitter

Saturday, March 6, 2010


VPL F/W 2010

While it seems that everyone is jumping on the social media bandwagon, the fashion world has been approaching it cautiously, albeit with accelerating curiosity. WWD, for instance, a first mover in the Twitter space, seems to report on fashion brands joining the fray every other day and websites such as Refinery29 and The Cut draw on fashion's Twitter streams as a news source. Not surprisingly, big brands such as Louis Vuitton and Dolce and Gabbana have been quick on the uptake (there's an excellent, fairly comprehensive list of fashion's who's who on Twitter via SassyBella), but what of other brands, particularly independent and directional brands?

Here is a list of 30 fashion designers and brands currently on Twitter, listed in alphabetical order:
I'm pleased to see a growing list of fashion brands joining the conversation every day, but as a Twitter nerd, I have my own secret wishlist. How amazing would it be to see tweets from Christopher Kane, Gareth Pugh and Rick Owens or to be able to send fangirl tweets to the designers of Preen or Proenza Schouler?

Do you follow any fashion brands on Twitter? Who is on your secret wishlist of designers or brands you would love to see on the fast-growing platform?

Disclosure: I recently launched a social media consulting firm and have been working with leading apparel and accessories brands, but for confidentiality and ethical purposes, their names are not listed above.

I like the idea of brands on twitter but maybe it takes away from the mystery somewhat? Never mind, I'd love to stalk Karl Lagerfeld but also fashion heavyweights such as Anna Della Russo and Grace Coddington.

I love following fashion brands on Twitter! It is so fun reading what they have to say. Also checking out some of the links that they post is always fun as well. Thank you for your comments! I flipped out when I got a comment from you because I was not expecting it. Always good to receive a surprise.
