117 Designers You Need to Follow on Pinterest


These days, talk to anyone about social media, and Pinterest is guaranteed to pop up. (We don’t blame them, having logged some serious hours on the platform ourselves—come say hi!) So we went ahead and scoured the platform for some pin-savvy designers—emerging and established alike—that you should be following to make that dashboard extra inspo-worthy. Behold, the (alphabetized!) list, with our two cents thrown in. Bonus: We’re also replicating this list as a pinboard that we’ll keep updating when new peeps join, so follow away. —jiayi

The fabulous Ormsby-Gores, poppy sixties art, and resort 2013 hydrangeas at Anna Sui.

Best Storytelling: If you’ve ever wondered why the hell someone pinned that, you probably weren’t looking at Anna Sui’s boards—which come with detailed descriptions of the roots of the fun-loving designer’s fascinations. A collection of pictures of the Ormsby-Gore siblings? Oh, they’re a group of trendsetters from sixties London—a time and place that, we discovered, the designer is especially drawn to.

Notes, prints, and Twiggy at DVF.

Best Personal Touch: Something about a handwritten note still speaks to us, and DVF covers each of the pretty-to-the-extreme boards with a little scrawled-out missive from the designer (and CFDA prez) herself. Talk about classy.

Vintage valentines, Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire, and flapper dresses at Erica Weiner.

Best TeamworkErica Weiner’s account boasts boards from every single lovely member of her team—showing off stellar finds both vintage and modern that give you a taste of the varying aesthetics that shape the jewelry.

Family-posing, Taormina-traveling, and Kate Middleton-wedding-dress-sketching at Nanette Lepore.

Best Trip Down Memory Lane: Not gonna lie: We love, love, love us some childhood pictures. And, looking at Nanette Lepore’s board “Growing up Lepore”—which shows the designer as a young’un finding her way in Youngstown, Ohio—it looks like she does, too. 

Some real visual stunners at Thomas Sires.

Best Where’d-They-Find-That? Eye Candy: We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: The Thomas Sires girls always know just what we want. They’ve nailed it with a clothing line, a Nolita store, and now a Pinterest account.
