From a modern-day Carrie Bradshaw comes an insider’s guide to making it in the fashion industry.

From a young age, fashion editor, stylist, and writer Caroline Vazzana knew the fashion industry was where she belonged—but gaining access to the amazing and mysterious world of fashion in the city that never sleeps takes countless hours of hard work and dedication. After making it to some of fashion’s biggest publications, Caroline’s finally pulling back the curtain and telling us her secrets. In Making It in Manhattan, Caroline sheds a bit of light on her journey and guides fashion hopefuls to stand out from the crowd and land the job of their dreams.

Written in conversational style, in a format reminiscent of a journal, complete with pictures and illustrations (and a little bit of name-dropping), Caroline shares what she’s learned about pursuing a career in fashion and the resources that helped her land jobs at Teen Vogue, Marie Claire, and InStyle magazines. Making It in Manhattan topics include:

  • Exploring your options
  • How to get that golden ticket (to fashion week)
  • What to do if you didn’t attend a big fashion school
  • Building your personal brand on social media
  • And more!

  • From how to get your foot in the door, to making fashion your full-time job, Caroline’s insider advice gives you everything you’ll need for breaking in and making it in Manhattan.

    THE BEST. Couldn't stop reading. This book has so many useful tips and tricks to pursuing your career in the Fashion Industry. I so wish I had read this when I first started college... As I am about to move to New York I feel so much more informed and can honestly say I feel ready to start my career there now that I have read this book.

    This book is worth every penny! For anyone curious about the fashion industry it's a must read. It's written in such an engaging and approachable way. I read it so quickly because of how interesting and helpful it was. It makes the fashion industry seem attainable and not so far away. As an aspiring fashion illustrator it gave me such confidence that I really have a chance at my dream career! And it made me realize that my boring part time job isn't the only thing I can do. Caroline gives such great insight to what it's really like to attend a fashion show and gives great advice on the best way to get invited! But the best advice she gives, in my opinion, is how to break into the industry. We all know that it's not easy but, she makes it sound like it's really possible! It was so good I'm hoping for a second book! I really encourage any one interested in fashion to read this! So inspiring, as soon as I finished reading it I started applying for internships!
