Life Through A Filter: Self Service Instagram Edit

love instagram life through a filter self service showroom uk

We don’t know about you but here at the Self Service showroom we are obsessed with Instagram.

Emulating analogue photography, Instagram shows the world a snapshot of your life, as curated by you. The fact that it’s image based makes it both fun and easy to get lost while sifting through an infinity of beautiful — and sometimes strange — shots.

There is a nostalgic quality about the pictures on Instagram. As soon as an image is put through a filter, captioned, tagged and uploaded, it becomes part of a past; a process that works just like fashion. This is part of the reason why this social media platform works so well with an industry devoted to looks. Instagram is instant (fashion is about the ‘now’), selective (showing an edited reality, just like fashion) and it constantly renews itself (fashion perpetually looks for ‘the next big thing’).

Here is a selection of some of the most stunning Instagram pictures featuring the Self Service brands.
