FASHION & ART INSTAGRAM ACCOUNTS!!!

It has been a year since I have joined the world of Instagram. In that time I have come across a lot of really creative accounts. For me personally, I like to use Instagram to follow artists, clothing shops and bloggers. If I want to see what a certain Hollywood star is up to, then I watch them on Snapchat. With Instagram, I like supporting accounts that have cool art and great style. Below are my top 2 favorite accounts when it comes to fashion, art, culture, and style.

1.AURETA/WATTS.ON

As you may have noticed, there are two IG accounts here. That is because these two accounts are run by two separate individuals, who happen to be a couple named Aureta Thomollari and Jordan “Watts” Watson. According to a wonderful interview they did with W Magazine, the two of them met at a mutual friends party. The two of them have a  lot in common in regards to the content they put out. For Aureta in particular, her Instagram account is an extension of her blog, whereas Watson puts up really unique artwork from artists that he has come to love and respect

Here are some photos from the @WATTS.ON IG account:

As expressed in the W magazine interview, Aureta Thomollari identifies herself as a “global brand consultant and entrepreneur,” while  Jordan Watson is an art consultant.

Here are some photos from @AURETA:

Only until recently did I discover what they both look like. In their interview, Watts mentioned how he never posts selfies and blurry photos. I FUCKING LOVE THAT! For me, the idea of being a bit of enigma within the cyberuniverse is a thrill. Like Aureta and Watts, I to want to produce content on my IG that is a reflection of my mind, spirit, and personality. These two artists have truly changed the world of art within social media and in the best way possible.

Also, if you ever see a really cool photo of art of any kind you can be sure that it is a repost photo from either Aureta or Watson. Lastly, do yourself a favor and please follow them on Snapchat. They take us with them to the dopest museums, and the way they shoot the artwork and places they go to on Snapchat is truly remarkable. Also, how fucking gorgeous is Aureta!?! #wardrobegoals #goals #style

Overall, Aureta and Watson are two very artistic and educated individuals, capable of showing the cyberuniverse just how marvelous and creative our world is.

2.STICKS_AND_STONES_AGENCY

The account known as Sticks and Stones Agency for me, is one of the OG’s to create really risqué content. Similar to Aureta and Watson, this one account is run by a couple named Sebastian Fougere and Ainsley Hutchence and they too have a wicked website/blog with funky interviews. In addition to posting fun and provocative photos of themselves (and others) in the most enviable clothing, they also post Andy Warhol like images.

When it comes to these two, it must be stated that they are insanely smart and unique with how they run their business. They have a very original brand and seem to run things on their own terms. I just recently started watching Ainsley’s Snapchat. From what I can tell, her business takes her places, as she and her husband, or a group of super hot models, go around LA taking dope photos for their blog and IG account.

It is insanely obvious that these two have come together to make one of the most awesome and funky couples on the planet. They currently have matching pink hair, and the fact that they coordinate their outfits is so adorable and endearing. One last wonderful thing about this account is that they give a lot of exposure to really beautiful and unique models, and clothing brands. This account has definitely proven the power of making a career on the Internet via one’s own style and taste in art, fashion, and photography.

As mentioned earlier, all of these incredibly successful IG accounts are run by couples in some way or another. Maybe the message here is that collaboration is key. Work with other like minded people to create something special. Having researched and followed all of these accounts for quite some time, I have come to understand that it is vital to always give credit where credit is due. Whether it is to a painter, sculptor, designer or model. Give them that credit! #respect. All this said, I will end by giving thanks to the above artists. They have inspired me and set an example on how to make a passion and hobby a profession.

QUESTION OF THE DAY: Who do you love on IG? ALSO, LEAVE A LINK TO YOUR IG ACCOUNT! I’D LOVE TO CHECK OUT YOUR PAGES AND #FOLLOW4FOLLOW❤︎💋✌️
