Top 100 Wearable Art Designers on Instagram

Wearable Art

For more than 5 years now, Beautiful Bizarre Magazine is keeping an attentive eye out on the rising contemporary art movement that is wearable art.
We have had the pleasure of working with many incredible designers – for the magazine itself, our web blog, and we, of course, shared their work across our 900,000+ strong social media network. Wearable art is a fascinating medium, connecting many different techniques and styles, and opening new ways to traditional art, couture, jewelry, design, and installation art.

So we are thrilled to share with you a list of artists whose work is truly unique, elegant, avant-gardist, luxurious, fun and, always incredibly creative. They work with a wide variety of mediums from textiles, latex, feathers, metal, gold, silver, beads, paper, bones, plastic, pearls, precious stones, lace, resin, leather, fiberglass, wood, and more. Their creations range from small jewels, masks, headpieces, corsets to bigger than life costumes! These wearable artworks can be for fashion, but also to stand out as a community, to become a living artwork or to embrace your beautiful bizarre power.

This is not an exhaustive list by any means, and it is definitely not in any particular order!

It includes internationally acclaimed artists, whose work has been shown in prestigious catwalks and shops and worn by celebrities, as well as fascinating and brilliant emerging artists who deserve more attention. You may note that there are some designers who are conspicuously missing. This is because we have not included artists without an Instagram presence, because as you will see, all the artists mentioned below are linked to their Instagram accounts so you can quickly and easily follow them too. With there being options where users can now send instagram messages on computer, linking the artists’ Instagram accounts next to their name will allow people to check out their work, as well as potentially interacting with them online. We respect that some designers don’t want to have an Instagram presence, but we encourage those who are considering it to create themselves an account and to read up about nitreo and how that could help once their account is live. Of course, there are many more talented wearable art designers out there we haven’t found yet. You can even consider this Top 100 as a Part 1! So, if you are a wearable art designer, or know one that you feel should be included in our next list, please comment below. We are always in search of exciting new creatives!

    Hi Jen!
    Already followed alot of these amazing artist but thank you so much for introducing me to soooo many more!

    If you guys ever do a less ‘well known’ or ‘established’ list of artists consider my work ☺️ Instagram : http://www.instagram.com/disco.tango.crowns
    Any promotion from a publication like yourself would do WONDERS for small scope creatives like myself who are really struggeling with the new insta algorithms!
