New York's biggest bi-annual fashion event, New York Fashion Week, has officially begun. We know that everyone across the globe will have their eyes glued to their computer screens, obsessively checking Twitter, and refreshing their favorite fashion sites (like yours truly) for up-to-the-minute reviews and photos. That's all well and good, but what about following your favorite designers on a deeper digital level? Turns out, tons of them are on Pinterest, where they (or their extensive PR teams) can fill fans in on their newest looks, inspiration, and even photos from the designers' personal lives. Click through for our list of 10 awesome pinners who just so happen to be showing their latest life's work on one of Mercedes-Benz's big stages.
The cult bag designer's Pinterest page is every bit as fun and colorful as her designs. Choose from entire pinboards dedicated to neon or brand-focused beauty. Minkoff's team also understands the importance of some good DIY inspiration, dedicating an entire board to (really awesome) DIYs from the brand's blog.
For what the Nicole Miller Pinterest lacks in number of boards, it makes up for in the sheer number of pins. Another craft-focused board is present, as is one dedicated to weddings, parties and photos of celebs (and street-style stars) wearing the brand.
Swimsuits abound on the Mara Hoffman Pinterest, as do fun inspiration boards and press clippings.
The Timo Weiland Pinterest may be a minority (on a site that tends to be overwhelmingly female) but the brand makes up for it, with boards of specific season inspiration (UFOs anyone?) and sneak peeks behind the scenes of campaigns. There's also a board with pins of store displays, for all those window-dressing nerds out there.
The DKNY Pinterest (vocally run by an enthusiastic PR girl) delves into every facet of the brand — from PR tips to inspirational quotes to fall ads.
The Tory Burch Pinterest boasts a cool 31K followers and expertly portrays the brand's colorful, preppy style. While the fashion pins will definitely evoke fashion lust, the extensive boards featuring far-flung locales (Myanmar and Marrakech) will definitely inspire some serious wanderlust.
The Pinterest of infamous stylist-turned-designer is a profile of all of Zoe's creations. With pins covering every collection (accessories, too) there's still a little room for some inspiration pics and as-seen-on boards.
The Pinterest of the irreverent brand shows that Juicy Couture is more than just velour track suits. The boards are super-colorful, just beachy enough, and showcase how the brand's style shouldn't just be reserved for lounging.
Michael Kors' Pinterest boasts a whopping 48K followers, and for good reason. Detailing everything from handbags to fragrance to "Michael's Milestones," the account has over a thousand pins, all portraying Kors' signature upscale-yet-approachable look.
