Career Opportunities in the Fashion Industry
Peter Vogt, Angelia WojakISBN: 0816046174;
Grade 7 Up-Vogt does a creditable job of describing a host of careers in the fashion world and related industries. He includes details on more than 60 positions, from fashion designer to media buyer. He devotes two to three pages to each one, outlining duties, salary range, prerequisites, and possible career progressions. He breaks the field into seven categories: textiles, retail, production/manufacturing, education, media, promotions, and other fashion jobs. In a foreword, Angelia Wojak of the Parsons School of Design discusses the character traits needed to succeed in a tough industry, often with "intense and volatile" workplaces. Clearly written and arranged, this excellent overview will make a fine addition to career collections.
