Those of you who already follow Celestial Investments on Instagram will already be aware of Emily Barker, the young lady running the account.

Her posts have not only attracted over 30,000 followers, they have also earnt Baker the title of being one of the leading culture-defining creators by the social media platform.

The accolade recognises Emily’s support towards the disabled community and the fashion industry which has seen her being featured in the Collinia Strada (pictured above) and Maisie Wilen shows at New York Fashion Week.

Ask Barker what her own style is and she will reference the 90’s with a sporty and grunge influence mixed with y2k jewellery trends.

Speaking to Pop Sugar Emily said: "There are a lot of brands I like to wear that are not particularly inclusive, but the radically inclusive ones are Collina Strada, 3234u, and Maisie Wilen."

Emily Barker has CRPS and describes herself as partially paralyzed.
