So this is how an industry insider does fashion week...

Stylish, beautiful and well connected - it's no wonder Stylebop.com's fashion director Leila Yavari has over 28,000 Instagram followers and is signed to Next Management. As well as a seriously great gig as fashion director for one of the world's best luxury e-tailers stylebop.com, the stunning fashion buyer scores amazing access to some of the world's best runway shows and casually hangs with the likes of Elena Perminova, Lily Donaldson and Julia Restoin Roitfeld - as you do. While the Iranian-born former model is based in New York, she travels the globe regularly as a purveyor of all things stylish and naturally boasts a wardrobe brimming with McQueen dresses, Céline and Rochas shoes, plus every Chloé and Fendi handbag worth its cult following. Put simply - Leila Yavari is a girl we wouldn't mind swapping lives with.
