The 10 Worst Instagram Fails Of Fashion Week

To you, snappin’ your snaps away at Fashion Week, Instagram may not be all that serious. It’s just a tiny vintage-hued picture to prove you were at a presentation or invited to a certain afterparty or standing near some famous person’s leather dog.

BUT IT IS IMPORTANT! Many designers now stage their shows around this goofy app to which we've glued our fingers and sense of self worth. And for those who aren’t allowed inside the glossy tents of high fashion Hades, Instagram basically provides rarefied snaps from North Korea. Your intel is crucial.

And yet, this past Fashion Week, it seemed many people still didn’t know how to use the damn thing. Ahead, all the failures you deemed fit to 'Gram. Now you’ll know for next time and we won’t ever have to talk about this again.

    ….so your mobile site works, but still, the desktop-ish…on every browser, really, it’s failing like naval yard security…too soon?

    … and the only way to feed you is to sleep with a man for a little bit of money.

    This whole article sounds like it came from a 70 year old woman shaking her first.

    • Rachel Seville

      Yes, but only because I was recently at a party with Dame Judy Dench and we locked eyes and unwittingly wished to be the other person and haven’t been able to switch back so now she is a 25-year-old living and loving in the Eastern Seaboard’s biggest metropolis.

        Oh wow that’s cool! It’d make a great show on Bravo.

  • Phr!zzy

    Funny, cause Jake Woolf (A writer for Four-Pins) posted a “Blurry Runway” and “Just A Famous” shot. Four-Pins writers bashing their own colleagues, damn.

    • Jake Woolf

      I mean, that Pusha T pic and Ovadia pic are both mine. But I chose the pics for this post. Now, there’s no question at all most of us at Four Pins are just in this for the Internet fame and celeb sightings, which is exactly why we love Rachel.

      Parce que je ne sais pas, mon cher!

    Why can’t someone post Instagram pics of things that other people instagrammed like the one of Nicki Minaj? This complaint or “fail” makes no sense. Everyone has different followers and uses different hashtags. Also, if you are not “a famous” what’s so wrong about getting a pic with “a famous”? Many non famous people with regular jobs in the design or fashion world can be at Fashion Week. This article is very pretentious and the writer seems to not understand how us “normals” use instagram.
