In case you’ve been living under a rock (or just haven’t been checking GraziaDaily), New York Fashion Week has officially begun.

For a full week celebrities and models will be storming the Big Apple in a non-stop flurry of shows and presentations.

And, since it’s 2015 and all, you can feel like you’re right in the action thanks to Instagram - and where better to start than with designers themselves.

We’ve collated a selection of the best designer Instagram accounts for you to follow this NYFW for backstage exclusives, a sneak peek at some of the creations and a look-in from the best seats in the house…

1. Donna Karan

We're expecting a lot of gorgeous behind-the-scenes model shots from the woman behind DKNY, like this candid moment of Kendall Jenner.

2. Tommy Hilfiger

Alexa Chung has been popping up all over Mr Hilfiger's Instagram lately so we're keeping our eyes peeled for whatever the pair are cooking up being unveiled this week!

**3. Diane Von Furstenberg


From teasers of upcoming collections to throwbacks with Andy Warhol, and selfies with celebs rocking DVF, this account is sure to see some A-list faces this NYFW.

4. Jeremy Scott

Jeremy counts Katy Perry, Rita Ora and Miley Cyrus as BFFs so we're sure he'll be snapping some selfies with them in NYC.

5. Michael Kors

With the #AllAccessKors hashtag, Michael Kors has given us an easy-peasy way to keep up with the all the action.

6. Calvin Klein

This account has been flooded with shots from Justin Bieber and Lara Stone's Calvin Klein underwear campaign, and the Biebs is in town, so we can pretty much count on him showing face at the CK show!

7. Alexander Wang

Alexander Wang throws some of the most notorious after-parties around and we can't wait to see the pics from his NYFW soiree (and the morning afters!)

8. proenzaschouler

Proenza Schouler always have a fashion-related meme up their sleeve so if the endless catwalk shots are getting too much, this is the account to follow.

9. Jason Wu

Jason is partial to Instagramming a pic or two of his famous Wu girls and we're sure he'll be around plenty of them this NYFW.

10. Rodarte

Roadarte loooove showing off their gorgeous creations on the 'Gram and what better time to brag than when the fash pack are in town?

11. Marc Jacobs

Never one to be shy and retiring, Marc Jacob's Instagram is as colourful as you'd imagine.

12. Altuzarra

For artsy shots and gorgeous pictorials, Altuzarra is your man.

13. Opening Ceremony

Nobody does backstage sneak-peeks like Opening Ceremony. They've already been posting shots from other designer catwalks they've watched so they've got everything you need!

14. Zac Posen

Black and white behind-the-scenes galore!

15. Victoria Beckham

She's already been filling up Instagram with gorgeous New York views and peeks at her sewing skills so VB's posting will only ramp up as it gets closer to show time.
