HOW TO PREPARE FOR A CAREER IN FASHION
The concept is based upon real careers concerns and questions from the target audience – students from over 50 UK schools and colleges participated in our extensive market research survey.
Each chapter includes job profiles, an overview of qualifications required for each role, ‘behind the scenes’ accounts of the fashion world, and Q&A sections with answers from top industry insiders. It also features a vast number of contributions, interviews and quotes from UK & European fashion professionals, from companies such as Top Shop, ASOS, River Island, Liberty, Paul Smith, Louis Vuitton, Pringle and Lulu Guinness.
