Great read.
This book was very nice...
Shipped fast and was exactly what I needed
This book is full of such good information of jobs for people in the fashion industry. I learned so much and cannot wait to graduate and get into the industry.
The book was in great condition. I received it in plenty of time for the first day of class. Thank you very much.
I had ordered this textbook for a class and I was 100% satisfied with the amount of time it took was short and the quality was brand new. Very satisfied customer and will definitely order in the future!
This is a required textbook for one of my Fashion Classes/Lectures in my college. As long as I had gotten it, I was fine, and I got it in time, so I was good. Point of me getting it from Amazon was that it was cheaper than getting it from my college's Bookstore. Nothing bad about this :)

I love how the entire book is basically a rundown of probably all of the careers offered in the fashion world! It gives you the Job, a detailed Job Description, the Qualifications, the Experience/Education needed, and sometimes even the challenges these certain people might face. I will definitely be keeping and using this in the near future, for when I get one of these positions, and when I also have to know about the other positions that would be working around me.
This book was incredibly useful in my search for a career path in the world of fashion and retail.
It is up-to-date and spells out

It was really helpful to have access to so many job types at one time so paging through it I could bookmark potential jobs from Product Management to Fashion Photographer to Visual Merchandiser. It covers the full spectrum and is a great resource for anyone still in college looking for their dream job! Sometimes its hard to match your skill set with a real job title and description but this book makes it so easy!! I definately recomend it to anyone in the design, fashion, or arts fields.
