Just less than 5 years ago the doors into the elite world of haute couture fashion were closed to us mere mortals. We were spoon-fed whatever image the designers and their entourage wished to divulge. Fast forward to present day and there are cracks appearing in the facades of all the major fashion houses as fans have an inside look into the inspiration and nitty gritty of these legends. From behind the scenes of fashion shows, favorite pets or the designers themselves, Instagram is revolutionizing our view of the fashion world. Time will tell whether this intimate view will translate into sustained success for these brands, but for now we consider this a win.
