    This review is from: Passion for Fashion: Careers in Style (Paperback)

    this book is rich with information and quotes from famous people in the fashion industry, however this book is definitely written more for teenagers. this would be the perfect book to buy someone in high school is interested in pursuing a career in fashion, but is not sure which path to choose. each chapter provides information on different fields in the industry (think writer, designer, model, pr, etc). the information is at the most basic level and it doesn’t go much further than general descriptions which is why i think this is great for someone young.
