Top 10 Instagram Fashion Influencers In Delhi
“Influencers present fashion in a way that is accessible to followers. They bring authenticity to brand collaborations that, if done well, encourage their followers to purchase. They also often start trends through their own personal fashion, which spurs the consumption of those items for a period of time.”- Luke Meagher

Quite a few of Komal’s posts have crossed a million views, but the one we believe was the most impactful is where she has spoken about “Normalizing showing off the skin” with an engagement rate of over 100%.
