How To Prepare For A Career In Fashion

Posted in Book Reviews by Arcadia on October 11, 2010

For those of you studying fashion in the UK there is a new book out to give you some advice on what it takes in the various positions from Buyer, Designer, Journalist, Stylist, and of course our favorite job Visual Merchandiser!

Each chapter includes job profiles, information on education and work experience, interviews, practical tips, and Q&A sections with top industry insiders from companies such as Top Shop, ASOS, River Island, Liberty, and Lulu Guinness, all giving their expert advice on how readers can begin to prepare for their chosen career.

“Fashion is seen as an exciting career choice, but the majority of students have no idea of how to
break into the industry, what their options are beyond fashion designer, or what they need to study to
prepare for these jobs. We were inundated with requests for information at Clothes Show last year –
from both students and parents – so I decided to write the book. The aim is to create an easy to
understand, highly visual and accessible publication, presented in an informal ‘magazine’ style that
will appeal to younger readers”, says fashion careers specialist and author Stephanie Finnan.

More information on Stephanie and her book can be found here.
