Winner of CDFA Instagram Award

We told you last month that the Council of Fashion Designers of America were launching a new category to their annual awards: Instagrammer of the Year. Now, the first-ever winner has been announced – and it's Patrick Janelle.

As one of the founders of Spring Street Social Society, New York-based Patrick organises ‘cabaret shows, coursed dinners, movie nights, and anything else we dream up' reported Refinery 29.
