Children's Literature - Melanie Jones
For those who have a flair for fashion, this book is the perfect choice. Photos and facts are well organized and cover a wide array of jobs and skills for those students who are serious about the world of fashion. Covering topics from colleges and fashion schools to graphic design and working as an apprentice, the book discusses many choices for those who enter the fashion field. For those who are serious about design, suggestions are given for brushing up on technology and CAD design as well as what to include in a portfolio. This book gives those who are interested in this field both direction and knowledge about what to do next should a fashion career be in the near future. Pertinent photos accompany the text with shots of well known fashion designers. The back matter includes a glossary, fast facts, additional reading, as well as related Internet sites. Young fashion-minded readers would find this an informative yet easy read. Reviewer: Melanie Jones
