This week's Insider is by fashion entrepreneur Lian Michelson, the founder of up and coming retail website THEN AND NOW, where you can buy. Once a City banker, working at Morgan Stanley as an Interest Rates Trader for 5 years, Lian left to follow her true passion, setting up THEN AND NOW in 2011.
Current title: Founder and Director of Then and Now Ltd
Fashion world fodder (a favourite anecdote from your years in the trade): Before the site launched, I went to meet a designer in his studio, during London Fashion Week model casting. I found it quite funny that out of politeness they asked to see my book (I am not exactly tall), and made me stand in the corner of the studio for 20 minutes before they realised I was there for a scheduled meeting. You've got to love the fashion world.
