10 Must Follow Egyptian Instagram Accounts

Instagram is a very big thing now, no wait Instagram is a HUGE thing, so sorry Facebook but Instagram has successfully stolen all of your charms. Instgram is more easy to use and make people feel closer to each other than Facebook. Now you can see what your favourite star will be wearing to her date, what's your fav. footballer's closet looks like or even his bathroom. It has lifted some boundaries especially between celebrities and their fans. Of course like everything it does have its pros and its cons.
So now you tell me who you follow I will tell you who you are, or at least what your interests are.

As an Egyptian living half of my year in Cairo and the other half  I spend roaming around the Middle East, I have noticed that Instagram usage is bigger in the GCC way more than Egypt, probably because the GCC is usually with more purchasing power so everyone was into smart phone before the Egyptians did. And sadly Instagram is only a phone/tablet application, it can't be used from the PC (Just to view photos not to upload)

I have also noticed that there are so many great accounts over there in Egypt, which have unbelievably amazing content but don't have the required attention, so I decided to list some of my favourite Instagram accounts, and introduce them to you in this post. There will be people you already knew and follow, some other will be the first time to hear about, but surely all of these 10 accounts are worth following.

1- Azza Fahmy: www.instagram.com/azzafahmy

The best and greatest Egyptian jewelry designer of all the time. Azza Fahmy Instagram takes us around her workshop, factory, galleries, trips and inspirations. Each piece of her timeless jewelry tells a different Egyptian story of it own.

The account is updated daily by photos of the latest collections and with photos of people rocking Azza Fahmy jewelry. If you own one of her beautiful pieces, snap a photo of it, instagram it -yeah it is a verb now :)- and use the hashtag #YOUxUS

2- Karim El Haywan: www.instagram.com/Karimelhayawan

So whenever I feel homesick, I just open Karim El Haywan's Instagram page, and browse his exceptionally beautiful photo, which he takes on daily basis for Egypt, Karim is an architecture with an excellent taste and great photography skills, he roams around Cairo taking very unique shots of old buildings, authentic people. local markets. He can see and capture the beauty in everything around the busy city, even inside the poor neighborhood and squatters,Karim never fails to capture amazing photos.

3- Aliaa Elessiely: www.instagram.com/aliaaelessiely

A beautiful Egyptian girl with fanatstic taste, and sense of style. Aliaa has a fabaolous wardrobe and like to dress up and take photos around the city. She is also a stylist,makeup artist and personal shopper. I will be soon posting an interview with Aliaa, and we will also get to know what's inside her bag. So wait for it.

4- Amina K. www.instagram.com/Aminak_Egypt

Amina is simply my favourite ready to wear young Egyptian designer. Her designs are always modern and trendy yet she always succeed in blending in modernity with the genuine Egyptian heritage. Also watch out for an exclusive interview to be posted very soon.

5- Winne Detwa: www.instagram.com/winniedetwa

Winne is a very famous Egyptian/American fashion blogger living in New York. She has a simple yet very chic taste in fashion,and recently has decided to wear the Islamic veil, so veiled girls make sure you are following her to get inspired because I can tell she can put very fashionable outfits.

6- Ines Gohar: www.instagram.com/inesgohar

Ines is the fashion buyer for Cairo's biggest luxurious department store Beymen. Follow Ines around her fashion buying trips across the fashion capitals. Ines is simply the one who decides who La cream de la cream of the Egyptian society will be wearing for the upcoming season.

7- Cairo Street Style: www.instagram.com/cairostreetstyle

A cute account the re-posts looks for Egyptian and Arabian fashionistas. If you want to get featured mention them at your coming outfit post, and if they think it cool enough they will repost it. My only concern about this account is I think they should focus only on re-posting looks from Egypt only.

8- Maha Abdel Rasheed: www.instagram.com/maharasheed

Maha is originally an Alexandrian girl but living in Dubai. The Dubai sweatheart owns Bambah, the biggest and coolest vintage store in Dubai and the Middle East. Bambah is my favourite vintage store ever, I can go and spend hours there,  just looking at the beautiful setup and the finely picked vintage clothing and accessories. Maha has a very different taste, she travels to handpick pieces for her boutique. Her brother Hussien owns the shop next door The ZooConcept, which is a very funky concept store, located just in front of the Dubai Zoo, make sure to visit if you are in Dubai.

Will be posting very soon a special post about both stores.

9- Yasmine Yeya: www.instagram.com/maisonyeya

Yasmine Yeya is Egypt's finest wedding dresses couturier. I have been following Yasmine since she was a student in Mission Fashion TV program which used to run on LBC, it was a very popular show back in 2002 or 2003 I can't really remember. Where Ellie Saab himself used to be one of the instructors and judges in that program. Yasmine designs weddings gowns that I have never ever seen like before, she has unbelievable taste, and impeccable signature. I think just looking through her Instagram will make you want to marry.

8- Noha Youssef: www.instagram.com/Nohayoussef

Yeah me :) Follow me, Why ? Because I think I have a pretty cool account, hahaha, no really I just love to take photo for everything around me. You will find very random photos, some are from my travels, some are from the fashion and beauty events I attend, some are for my personal style, and some are for the food I cook or have out.

11- Omar Samra: www.instagram.com/omarsamra

Egypt's famous mountain climber and our own hero. Follow Omar around the universe, as he climbs different mountain every now and then ,and travels to exotic places. He has such a fabulous gallery full of adrenaline and beautiful scenery.
