Mary Gehlhar, author, industry authority, and consultant to hundreds of designers (including newcomers Alicia Bell, Keanan Duffty, and Milly), gives readers behind-the-scenes advice and essential business information on creating and sustaining a successful career as an independent designer. This book provides case studies from independent designers at different stages of their careers, including tough letdowns and exciting successes. Young designers weigh-in on topics important to them when they were starting out, while several top name designers offer personal perspectives on a single question, providing a window to their world and a variety of answers.
Designers are bursting with creativity but often fall flat going into business as an independent. The Fashion Designer Survival Guide provides designers with the one thing design school didn't-intelligent and successful business practices.

Much better than other fashion business books that seem boring and lecturing. Here a ton of young designers and other fashion people share with you the things they did to make their business successful. Better still they also give you the dirt on the mistakes that most people make. To me, it's a must read for anyone who is SERIOUS about making it as a young designer. Would have loved this while starting out. But there is still a lot for me to learn.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
