The interior designer and former dragon picks her five top Instagram feeds.

‘Technology is an incredible thing;’ says Kelly Hoppen MBE, the interior designer and entrepreneur who was a presenter for Dragon’s Den. ‘I love the way it connects us. I love tweeting, blogging and using Instagram to keep my fans and followers not only updated on my work, but also my life. They can get an insight into my life and what I’m up to daily, in a really fun way.’

To celebrate forty years' experience in the design industry, Kelly released her tenth book, Kelly Hoppen: House of Hoppen, a retrospective, in October. We asked the former dragon to pick her five top Instagram feeds.


Victoria’s personality truly shines through on her account. There’s a real sense of family and her stunning eye for fashion is next to none. I love that Instagram captures her creativity.


Family is so important to me. Ayda’s strong sense of family shines through this account. Additionally, her pictures are great fun and so light-hearted, and that’s what you need from social media.


I am an ambassador for Prince’s Trust so I’m always on the lookout for their developments and monumental mile stones. Helping the younger generation is so important to me


Melissa Odabash’s swimwear pieces are amazing and I love being able scroll through her collection and see all her wonderful achievements . Melissa is such a talent.


Sam is such a creative talent. His designs are lovely and so wearable. In fact, his talent is so undeniable that I invested in him.
