Instagram can seem like all fun and games when you're sending memes back and forth between all your friends, but as far as brands are concerned, it's a main source of business. While you're scrolling, liking, and shopping on the app, Instagram is taking very detailed notes of how you engage with the content being presented in front of you, but it's not the only one taking a close look. A company called Dash Hudson is also paying close attention as well.

According to a representative from the brand, Dash Hudson, a visual marketing platform, works with "the world’s raddest, most discerning brands and publishers to create, source, measure, and enhance the engagement of their photos and videos to distribute content that drives awareness and generates ROI so all interactions between brands and the people who care about them are meaningful."

So how does this relate to you and the reason you clicked into this story? Well, Dash Hudson did some digging and used all of its resources to uncover the five most popular F/W 19 collections based on overall engagement rates on Instagram. Does this necessarily mean these are the most talked-about or purchased brands right now? No. Does it mean they have the most followers? Also, no. But it does mean that the fall campaigns rolled out by these powerhouse brands outperformed all the rest, and that's worth talking about.

Since the numbers you're about to read will probably mean nothing to you without context, below we have provided the industry average engagement rates for luxury brands:
