5.0 out of 5 stars Buy This!!, 27 Feb 2011
I love fashion and know I want to work in the industry but I'm clueless on what job I want to do. Fashion Design, Fashion PR?! I dont know!!

This book lists over 50 different jobs and the key requirements of the jobs as well as interviewing people already in that industry. You are taught how to write a CV, present a portfolio and you are even given tips for when you start your new job.

This book truly is fantastic and a must-have for anybody in love with the industry preparing for work.

Buy, buy, buy!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth Your Money, 27 Feb 2011
For a fashion loving teenager this book is a must. If you, like me, are interested in any job in fashion you need this book.

No matter what part of the industry you go into it's vital to have a know-how of key figures in fashion history. This book ideally has an A-Z of them. First is James Abbe, a photographer who created dreamy photos for American Vogue in the 20's. Finally is minimalist designer Zoran who was big in the 70's. Inbetween you have the people I have actually heard of: Alberta Ferretti, Salvador Dali, Paul Poiret, Alexander McQueen, Naomi Campbell, Lenny Kravitz etc.

This book has 500 of the key people in Fashion, from designers to models to just your run of the mill icons. What a great way to spend you money.

The layout is clean and beautiful, I'm so glad I bought this version, the bigger version, of the book.

I urge you, buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have!!, 6 Oct 2010
Bought this book after it was just released. If you're like me and want to have a career in the Fashion Industry then this book is perfect for you.
The Hand-Book goes into great detail on the different jobs in the Industry, including Fashion Design, Fashion Editorial, Stylists, Modelling, Beauty and Photography.
In each area they include interviews and schedules from someone who works in that department, what they think it takes to become say a Model or Model Scout. Also included is a helpful list of equiptment needed in that job and how you could get intern ships etc.
Really love this book, its great to dip into from time to time - kind of like a manual.
This really is a must-have for any Fashion hopeful!!
