A few years ago unless you were a top editor or journalist you would have to wait a good six months before being granted access to what went on at fashion week. But now with the advent of social media, blogging and live streams, even if you can't get a front row seat you can still keep up with the action and see the shows as they unfold by following your favourite models, bloggers, editors and PR's.
So if you'd rather enjoy VIP access from the comfort of your bed while drinking a cuppa then these are the 15 Twitter and Instagram accounts you should be following 24/7 to be completely in the know!
