How to find top fashion designer hashtags in 2023
Maybe you’re not inspired by our ideas. Maybe you have a bit of a DIY attitude towards hashtags. No worries, we’re not offended. In fact, we fully support your go-getting attitude, because when it comes to hashtags, more popular isn’t always better. Sometimes taking the time to find those less common hashtags could be what helps get your content seen. Think of it this way: When you take the time to find your own fashion design hashtags, you get a big fish in a little pond scenario rather than just doing what everyone else is doing.
If this sounds like something you’d like to try, use these tips to find the top fashion designer hashtags.
Use the Instagram search feature
You don’t need to overcomplicate finding hashtags. If you’re struggling, simply use the tools that Instagram has already provided to you. In particular, we love using the auto-complete feature in the search bar. Simply start typing in a search term that is relevant to your image and Instagram will give you a whole host of hashtags to use. For instance, if you type in “fashion design” some of the ideas you’re given include:
#fashiondesigner #fashiondesignstudent #fashiondesignsketch #fashiondesigndesigning #fashiondesignerslife #fashiondesigncourse
Check the explore page
Don’t forget that not every hashtag you use has to be one hundred percent relevant to fashion design. While we recommend not going too crazy with a bunch of hashtags that are all over the place, don’t be afraid to step outside the lines. For instance, go check out what is trending on the explore page and see if any of the hashtags are relevant to your image. If they’re not, skip it, but if you have something relevant, we say add it!
To do this, be sure you’re clicking on similar accounts to see what they are using. You obviously don’t want to use the same hashtags that an account is using if they are entirely outside your scope. Examples might include:
#winterfashion #stylediary #getinspired #stylishlook #aesthetic #streetfashion #lookdyjour #styletips #fashiontrends
See what other designers are doing
You don’t want to copy another designer entirely, but when it comes to hashtags, there isn’t necessarily a creative element to it. It is simply a marketing tool, meaning seeing what other designers are doing with their hashtags could give you some good ideas about what hashtags will work for you. For instance, if we look through hashtags used by other designers, some of the ideas we get include:
#fashiondrawing #fashionillustrator #coat #fashionable #fabric #elegant #fashioninsta #fashionaddict #pinkdress #outfitinspiration #fashionstyling
Create your own hashtag
Every designer should have their own fashion hashtags. Even if it’s not the thing that necessarily draws people to you, it’s something that you should start now so that once you grow your following, your customers already know your hashtag. You can simply make your hashtag the name of your brand, or you can come up with something clever that works with your brand. Either way, with time, creating your own hashtag can pay off in a big way.
When in doubt, don’t rely on hashtags and create a reel instead
We love hashtags and we absolutely think you should use fashion design hashtags in your content. Having said that, if you’re looking to reach a wider audience, you might find that creating an Instagram reel is a great strategy as well. Reels rely on hashtags less, and instead will show your content to any user who shows signs of interest in similar content to yours (i.e. content about fashion design). And, don’t forget, you can also add hashtags to your reels to give them an even better shot of getting discovered.
