Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Melanie Jones
For those who want a career in the fashion industry, this book will help you weave through all the choices and alternatives waiting for you in the field of fashion. A great introduction to the variety of jobs that exist for those who have a passion for fashion, this resource may help those interested in a fashion career find the right fit. While there are many glamorous paths to take, there are also many jobs behind the scenes in the industry. Details and descriptions about textile designers, colorists, merchandisers, buyers, and stylists are just a few that are mentioned in the text. There are also down to earth suggestions about making sure fashion is the right path by attending local fashion shows, sketching out your own designs, and learning to sew. Sage advice is also offered about getting a job in a retail outlet and spending time learning the ropes because making it as a famous designer takes loads of talent and it is not all glitz and glamour. The back matter includes a glossary and fast facts, as well as related Internet sites. Reviewer: Melanie Jones
