    Ins and Outs of the Fashion Industry - From a Fashion Insider

    I liked what Yolanda had to say in regards to office politics and how to keep ones head up in such situations. I found it a great outlook for those who want to enter into the field. I hadn't realized how there's so much to consider in this industry.

    The Ins and Outs...

    Great book! Loved the author's spin on her time behind the scenes of the fashion industry. Found it to be a great book especially for young people and or college students who want to get into the industry. What better advise than from someone who has gone through the steps in climbing the ladder.
