The 3rd edition of Instagram’s digital magazine now features the latest fall trends in fashion and beauty. It focuses on pageantry, respect for nature, and self-identity. The pageantry section posted models of the moment. While designers from NYC and London highlight respect for nature and self-identity on the “Fashion Month Preview.” It also has an “Ask Brittany” section as an FAQ about Reels.
