Burberry Still the most popular brand on Instagram

By  | 

London – Burberry may going through a number of changes, ahead of the impending depart of Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey, but that has done little to harm its reputation as the British brand is the most popular brand on Instagram.


Burberry has managed to hold onto its crown for the second year running, with 10.4 million followers, two million more than last year, according to Iconosquare second annual study. Although the luxury fashion house is the most popular British brand on Instagram, its engagement rate, the number of comments and likes divided by the number of followers, is only 0.57 percent.

“A strong social media presence is an essential component of any successful marketing strategy,” said Romain Ouzeau, CEO of Iconosquare. “The top ten most popular British brands on Instagram have all been able to successfully promote aspirational lifestyles to a wide audience of people and will reap rewards this holiday season.”

However, British fashion brand popularity on Instagram pales in comparison to leading interational fashion brands such as Nike, which has 75.2 million followers, Victoria’s Secret with 57.7 million followers and Chanel with 25 million followers.
