The Instagram Edit at Selfridges: 8 Instagram-first brands you need to know about

Selfridges are holding a special pop-up event in store and online, showcasing brilliant Instagram-built brands that offer truly unique gifts.

Instagram is an amazing buisness tool, allowing small independent brands a platform to reach millions of customers.

Many buisnesses are Instagram born, and have since gone on to grow into mainstream brands, all thanks to shear power and reach of the social media platform.

This Christmas, Selfridges are integrating the digital retail experience into their flagship London store. You can shop ‘The Instagram Edit’, a carefully curated selection of fashion, jewellery, beauty and homeware brands, at Selfridges’ London store (and if you can’t make it to London, online too) from 5-15th December.

The pop-up features labels such as The Frankie Shop, Kim Shui, along with emerging British brands, Ammé London and Tandem Skincare.

Eva Chen, Fashion Director at Instagram says, “Brands have been a key part of the Instagram community since our launch—Instagram has always been a place to discover and be inspired by businesses of all sizes. Today, 90% of people follow a brand or business. The Instagram Edit @TheOfficialSelfridges brings to life some of these beloved brands that were built on Instagram in an iconic setting, just in time for Christmas.”
