Farfetch CMO Stephanie Horton is the definition of jet-setter. The London-based fashion insider is in constant travel mode, especially when fashion week and awards season collide. We caught up with our new Mover and Shaker while she was in town for NYFW to talk career, style and to find out what's always in her carry-on.
