If you are interested in a career in the fashion industry, this is THE book to have. If you are interested in the ins and outs of the fashion industry, this is a must read. Interview tips, training, biographies of famous people, interviews with famous people. Gr 7-adult
This is the MUST HAVE book for anyone who is contemplating a career in the fashion industry. For anyone interested in reading about the fashion industry, this is a must read title. Iverson, an insider in the fashion industry, dishes the scoop with no frills and provides practical tips for future fashionistas. Insider tips on training, tips on interviewing, how to land the job, how to keep the job and how to move up in the industry are applicable to almost any career path. Also includes biographies of famous names in fashion, interviews with those famous people, and a truly insider look at the fashion industry that are all contained in a surprisingly drab - lackluster book layout. But the facts presented are strong and sure to help anyone breaking into the industry. Iverson divides the jobs available in fashion into four major categories: creator, visualizer, critic and seller. The variety of jobs available in each category show that there is a place for almost any personality type and almost anyone interested in fashion as long as they have a sense of style and intense interest in fashion: from the runway model to the clothing designer , from the accessory designer to the magazine writer or editor, from the photographers to the merchandizer. Excellent title for grades 7-adult. McNicol,Lois
