Free Stock Photos: Fashion

Unsurprisingly, given my background in fashion ecommerce, a lot of my current web design clients are fashion and accessories brands. Now, this is probably one of the toughest industries to get started in: competition is fierce, and you need quite a bit of capital just to purchase your initial collections and stock. And then there’s the fact that as a visual brand, you will usually need to invest quite a lot into beautiful imagery to attract new customers to your store. Most fashion startups simply don’t have the budgets to invest in high end shoots every month to keep their social media feeds topped up.

So while I strongly recommend creating your own imagery as much as you can, I have found an alternative: a stunning collection of free stock photos you can use for website and social media banners and posts. You can browse my finds below, or follow me on Pinterest to stay up to date with my latest posts.

Of course, if you still can’t find what you’re looking for but don’t have the budget for a full shoot just now, there’s always CreativeMarket – unlike a lot of stock photo libraries they don’t tie you into expensive monthly subscriptions, so you only pay for what you need.
