A Guide to Every Career in the Fashion Industry and How to Get In
Julia Yates; U.S. Consultant, Donna Gustavsen - All books by this author

The exciting and glamorous fashion industry is very tough to break into. That’s all the more reason why ambitious young men and women who hope to succeed in this dynamic business can take their first step to success by reading—and re-reading—The Fashion Careers Guidebook. Author Julia Yates explains the fashion industry’s many and complex facets, offers detailed descriptions of its widely varied career opportunities, and instructs readers on effective ways to stand out from the crowd of job seekers. She advises on preparing résumés and portfolios, dealing with job interviews, and mastering the art of networking. She offers inside tips on finding and following up on fashion industry jobs that others don’t know about, and discusses internships as a possible path toward career success. Most important, she describes the jobs themselves, which include—

  • Fashion Design—Haute couture, ready-to-wear designer, pattern cutter, illustrator, design room assistant, and more
  • Accessories—Footwear, millinery, and jewelry designers, and more
  • Textiles—Embroidery designer, textiles technician, tapestry maker, and more
  • Production—Tailoring, logistics and distribution, fashion production, and more
  • Costume—Costume designers, supervisors, and assistants
  • Retail—Sales rep, buyer, merchandiser, display designer, and more
  • Communication—Fashion journalist, photographer, set designer, and more.
This essential guidebook also presents true case histories of successful fashion workers, describes schools and courses that lead students into fashion careers, and lists web sites that offer additional advice on launching fashion careers. More than 150 color illustrations.
