Synopsis

Synopsis

The dynamic author-illustrator team of Jeanne Beker and Nathalie Dion again work their magic in this comprehensive career guide, with a detailed resource section at the back, for those who dream of working in fashion. The famous Coco Chanel said that fashion “is something in the air … you feel it coming,” and this book captures the excitement, inspiration, and passion of the whole industry. From agent to designer, model, photographer, stylist, makeup artist, retail fashion director, publicist, journalist, fashion illustrator, creative director,
editor-in-chief, trend forecaster, fashion show producer, color specialist, and personal shopper to all the people behind the scenes, Jeanne Beker informs, entertains, and inspires. Discover the ins and outs of fashion production, the players, and who deciphers what’s hot. In this common-sense career guide, Jeanne Beker’s down-to-earth approach, peppered with quotes and mini profiles of successful fashion people, lets us explore what we love about fashion while receiving practical advice on how to break into this diverse and creative industry.

As in their collaboration for The Big Night Out, Jeanne Beker and Nathalie Dion dazzle us with a whole new world of possibilities.

“Surely no one is better positioned to advise aspiring style-makers how to break into the fashion industry than Fashion Television creator Jeanne Beker. Her behind-the-seams look at how to start a career in fashion is engaging, informative, accessible, and encouraging…. Chic, age-appropriate illustrations by Montreal native Nathalie Dion add colour to every spread.” — Quill & Quire

Praise for The Big Night Out:
“A must-have for budding fashionistas.” — School Library Journal

“I wish Jeanne Beker had written The Big Night Out … a few years ago. Oh, like 40 years ago when I was the 13-year-old Big Foot.” — Ottawa Citizen
