So, You Want to Work in Fashion? A Book Review

Here is a new resource coming soon for tweens and teens:

While television shows us models and fashion designers, this excellent book for children covers the entire world of fashion.  Buyers, stylists, dressmakers, photographers: Fashion is so much more than what we see on the runway.  Children are introduced to these professions and told what education/preparation they will need.  Profiles of people now working in fashion help give an idea of what a day-in-the-life might be like.

As a former bridal alterations specialist, I would recommend this book for school library collections and for use by 4-H leaders, art teachers, and anyone else who might meet fashion-inclined students.

I received a free advance review copy of So, You Want to Work in Fashion? through NetGalley.  Publication date for this book is September 16, 2014.
