S02E01 Behind the Instagram algorithm with Eva Chen
Fashion No Filter is back with an interview with Eva Chen — head of fashion partnerships at Instagram — to kick off a brand new season. Chen, formerly the Editor-in-Chief of Conde Nast publication Lucky Magazine, left the print media world for a new role at fashion’s favourite app. At Instagram, she oversees fashion accounts, nurturing young brands, facilitating the communication strategies of global fashion houses, and keeping daily contact with influencers, designers and supermodels alike.
Your presenters catch up with Eva between shows at London Fashion Week where she spills the beans on new and improved functionalities for digital savvy fashionistas (did you know anyone can upload their own GIFs?), her career path choices, the future of print media and what it takes to get the revered blue tick.
