Wham bam Instagram. 4 weeks, 23 journeys and 1 canvas.
The team at Converse Accessories assembled a team of 23 creative individuals who boast impressive Instagram accounts. From stylists to bloggers, radio presenters and singers, the team each took their Converse Caynon Duffel Bag with them everywhere they went, creatively capturing cool snaps, crafting their own collage of images under the hashtag #mycanvasjourney. From the 15th to 17th March, the Hoxton Gallery was open freely to the public for an exhibition of all the images captured across the four-week journey which was kicked off by a party at which all the Instagrammers were in attendance to represent for their canvas.
Through London tattoo studios, Time Square and The Eiffel Tower, even the Brit Awards, the 23 inspiring Instagrammers shared their lives through the eyes of their bags and saw them touch down in situations and locations across the world but don’t worry if you couldn’t make the exhibition, the canvas journeys can be found here. i-D Online sat down with model, MTV presenter and Instagram hyper Becca Dudley, remembering her first pair of Converse and hearing top five favourites follows on Instagram.
“My first pair of converse were a gift from my sister when I was 14 or 15 – Fresh cream high tops… and I studded the crap out of them. Before studs were overhyped obvs.
My top 5 fave Instagrammers are:
1. HQTaste (Just loads of great bums)
2. Ayishat_akanbi (Probs the coolest/ most stylish lady I’ve encountered)
3. Jayhiest (Fresh Habits editor, skater, beautiful specimen)
4. Dopecheftv (perfect styling and product shots)
5. Ellis Cooper (Tattooed glamour model in her underwear. YES)”
