Instagram fashion brand googled more than top designer brands

Google has released its Year in Search 2017 data and has highlighted the top ten most Google-searched brands in 2017. While there were still many of the top names on the list, some including Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Supreme, the fourth most searched fashion brand in the United States was Instagram fashion brand Fashion Nova. The affordable label beat out luxury brands like Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior, and Dolce & Gabbana.

The brand could likely credit its success to some of the biggest names in all different categories sporting the brand, likely influencing their millions of followers. Some names such Cardi B, Nicki Minaj, Amber Rose, and Blac Chyna, have all posted the brand on their own Instagram feed, and even more recently, Toya Wright and Tammy Rivera were also spotted wearing the same dress from Fashion Nova. Most of the items on Fashion Nova’s site are all under the price of $100, making it significantly cheaper than bigger luxury brands.

The brand isn’t completely clean of dirt as it had its fair share of controversy over the past year, the brand was allegedly accused of using size 2 models to promote plus-size clothing.

The full list of fashion brands is as followed:

  1. Gucci
  2. Louis Vuitton
  3. Supreme
  4. Fashion Nova
  5. Chanel
  6. Yves Saint Laurent
  7. Christian Dior
  8. Dolce & Gabbana
  9. Valentino
  10. Moschino

5 Notable Lookbook Bloggers You Should Be Following

Many fashion conscious individuals live and die on inspiration. Whether it’s through online sources or from people watching on the streets, inspirational styles can be had easily (that’s if you live in a fashion rich city like NYC). When it comes to social media, sources like Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and Tumblr are full of style bloggers who passionately display their style through hashtags like #ootd and #picoftheday. And religious followers flock to these pages to get the “latest and greatest” styles from very attractive users.

Lookbook is another source for inspirational fashion. Much like a “Facebook for Fashionites” (if you didn’t know already), it has a global reach with members based in many different parts of the world. If you’re a Sartorialist junkie like myself, you’ll be happy to know that it is filled with Sartorial inspiration; so much so that it’s hard to pick your favorite. But here at FashionMR, we strive on making those tough decisions. So, here is our list of top 5 notable Lookbook bloggers to look out for.

Marc Galobardes

Hailing from Barcelona, Spain, Marc is a styleblogger with a healthy dose of sartorial and casual looks. And mostly taken while standing, his images are staged but bordering on organic. While he only has 66 images in his archive, you can find more of his looks on his site Carrouselmc.

Marcel Floruss

With over 37,000 followers on Lookbook, Marcel is an established styleblogger and founder of the site, OneDapperStreet. And much like Marc, he shares a mix of dapper and casual styles. Based in NYC, his styles are clean, well thought-out and down right classy. But simply telling you about it doesn’t do his styles justice. Take a look for yourself!

Christopher Michael

From the west coast, Christopher’s styles are dapper with a mix of casual. Many of his looks are very thorough. Showcasing all aspects of each outfit, viewers get to not only see the entire ensemble, but the individual parts that makeup the whole (i.e.: accessories and shoes). Check him out on Lookbook and on his personal site UnbearablyStylish.

Marc Bueno

North of the border, Marc Bueno is another styleblogger that offers up refreshing looks bordering on avant-garde territory. And with a fresh array of looks and a helpful collection of links to copy the look, Marc is definitely someone who you should be looking out for. Find him on Lookbook or at his blog, TheBuenoFashionisto.

G.one Kang

A jack-of-all trades (singer, song writer, designer and fashion blogger), G.one Kang is the founder of the blog mela-blog. Known for his casual looks, each of G.one’s outfits are tastefully put together and displayed to mostly showcase his style. His face is usually cropped out from the rest of the picture.



Franko Dean: Fresh to Death

A self-proclaimed socialite and menswear blogger, Franko Dean provides his followers with a classy mix of outfits ranging from sartorial to urban. But Franko provides a bit more than you’re usual style blogger. Along with the collection of ensembles showcased on his site, he provides videos for some of the outfits; can see the setup through still images and in action. And unlike most bloggers in this field, he actually provides text and translations in Spanish; in order to reach a broader audience.

For this setup, Franko goes casual with this navy blazer, denim setup. There is also a clear attention to detail. The bright red tie in a dominantly navy style, adds a bit of contrast; with the mustache tie clip to complete the look.

As stated earlier, Franco isn’t afraid to mix it up and go urban. In this look, he’s doing exactly that with jeans and a jean vest. Overall it is a clean and simple setup that prevents the outfit from looking to “busy” to the eyes.

In this video, he gets a bit edgy with a black leather shirt and denim. This look has a more post-modern vibe in comparison to his other outfits. It is definitely a bold move from some of his other ensembles.

Franco shows his sartorial prowess with this clean setup. With a pair of Ray Van Clubmasters, semi-spread collar, camo tie, vest and tapered slacks, he goes completely dapper; paired with brown loafers to finish off the look. This ensemble is a “win” on so many levels.



FashionMister Felix Flair : Style for the Modern Man

The motto is “style for the modern man,” although many of Felix Flair’s Instagram posts appear to emerge from Jay Gatsby’s world. A true fashionMister brand; a fashion connoisseur, this brand and promoter of elegant menswear has an Instagram worth following. The style is incredibly proper, emphasizing the dapper charcoal grey suit, with the white button-down casually popped open at the neck, pocket square barely falling out, and watch glistening innocently on a strong wrist. Felix Flair loves a good Italian leather loafer, paired with a plaid sport coat and appropriately masculine man purse (Italian leather, of course). The brand isn’t afraid of color, especially pastels. Despite leaning toward the excessively vintage at times, the looks are almost never too flamboyant. The ensembles are quietly stylish, and have their special place in Rome, Stockholm, Paris, or New York, although they lend themselves well toward the European crowd.
