Four rising TikTokers that are changing how we dress

In the second instalment of the Dazed x TikTok Icons in the Making series, we meet TikTok stars from across the globe that are shaping fashion online

Fashion used to be something exclusive: a glitzy, private world solely for the rich and famous, off limits to anyone not in the inner circle. But now, thanks to TikTok, you no longer need an invite to Paris Fashion Week to peek into the industry.

As part of our Icons in the Making series, Dazed and TikTok are bringing you a weekly dose of the platform's names to know. Each week, we’ll profile TikTok creators from one of four categories: entertainment, fashion, beauty and culture. This week, we’re spotlighting four talented TikTok creators who are changing the face of fashion.

On TikTok, brands livestream their runway shows, agents scout models straight from their FYPs, and stylish influencers inspire us with their innovative looks. There’s something for everyone on the fashion side of TikTok, whether you’re a model fine-tuning your walk or just looking for some fresh outfit inspo.

The app’s impact on fashion today cannot be understated – it really has revolutionised the industry – and it’s all thanks to the boundless imagination of its creators.
