For fashion and beauty fans, Instagram has become the go-to source of discovery. And, thanks to consumers’ new attention on digital and the platform’s newer features, it’s also emerged as a shopping destination, a video entertainment hub, an authenticity checkpoint, and a guide to the latest drops and seasonal collections. With the constant goal of meeting customers where they are, brands are increasingly focusing marketing efforts and investments on the platform. They’re leaning in on the opportunity to fuel engagement, make their values known and drive sales.

During Glossy’s Instagram Strategies Forum, you’ll hear from fashion and beauty executives who will break down their proven strategies for cutting through the noise and building strong communities on the platform.
