That's all the more reason why ambitious young men and women who hope to succeed in that dynamic business take their first step to success by reading--and re-reading-- The Fashion Careers Guidebook. Author Julia Yates explains the fashion industry's many and complex facets, offers detailed descriptions of its widely varied career opportunities, and instructs her readers on effective ways to stand out from the crowd of job seekers.
