In case you haven't heard, InStyle has a new editor in chief: Laura Brown! And since we're in the thick of New York Fashion Week, there's no better time than the commute between shows for a quick Q&A with Fashion News Director Eric Wilson about how she got to where she is today.

"I'm new—just out of the packet," Brown jokes. Slightly more seriously, she explains her start. "I had delusions of grandeur from a young age, because I grew up in Sydney and I was obsessed with magazines," she says. "I started interning, studied journalism, and got my first job at a magazine called Mode."

Watch the video above to find out why she loves InStyle, the shows she loves so far, and the weirdest thing to ever happen to her at NYFW. And if you don't already, follow her on Instagram (@laurabrown99) for her keen observations and witty fashion commentary.
