If you have ever wanted to enter the fashion industry, you probably have been told many times that it is more than just drawing pretty clothes or styling celebrities or living a glamorous life in New York. But if you are like me and really have no idea how to get into the industry, this book is a must have. It gives one all types of testimonials and advice from some of the most influential people in the industry, such as Marc Jacobs, Anna Wintour, and Karl Lagerfeld.
The book is split into six sections - designers, editors, stylists, models, beauty, and photography. Each section provides personal journeys and tips on how to get your foot in the door of what area of fashion you want to work in. Each section also comes with "Tool Kits" for each section, including an important one - Intern Tool Kit.
It gives you tips on how to get an internship, how to make a resume, and how to make an impression during your internship. At the end of the book, there is a list of fashion schools and a glossary of basic fashion terms every aspiring designer, editor, etc should know. So if you want to be a designer, fashion journalist, blogger, or you haven't narrowed down your choice, I definitely suggest you pick up this book. With passion and the right information, you can make it in the industry and follow your dream.
Teen Vogue Handbook should be available at bookstores like Barnes & Noble or you can find it on amazon.
