Spend enough time at any fashion week – even following it closely from overseas will teach you enough – and you'll notice a few trends. We don't mean the clothes; we mean the people who are there.

Julie Houts deserves a standing ovation for what she's just blessed us with. The artist – whose beautiful Instagram feed is basically the funniest visual diary we've ever seen – collaborated with luxury retail website Stylebop.com to create this incredibly accurate Illustrated Guide to Fashion Month.

The guide highlights some of the most common characters easily spotted during, before and after runway shows. The "I'm just here to do my job" is basically all of us at ELLE.

Stylebop announced that print copies of the guide will accompany customer orders for a limited time.
