Last week, Grazia Daily had the good fortune to be invited to the new lavish net-a-porter.com HQ at
It was a VERY enlightening affair, let us tell you, attended by the great and the stylish of the fashion world including journalist Sarah Mower and designers Jonathan Saunders and Gareth Pugh, who'd come to hear revealing insights from this very inspirational woman.
