I must admit, when I first saw this book in the fashion shelves at Indigo with my good friend Julia, I did not want to buy it. I was intrigued, but I said to myself "Well, Linnéa, it is Teen Vogue. Don't expect too much." So I decided to borrow it from the library instead, and boy, am I glad I gave this book a chance. It is so comprehensive, smart, clear and fun, that I will go far enough to say that A) I am absolutely going to buy this book and B) Anyone who loves fashion and/or who has ever co...more

I get every Teen Vogue issue, and I'm obsessed. I love it all and it's so fun and inspiring to read! This book is a guide to the industry of fashion.

They have interviews with the biggest fashion names. Marc Jacobs, Anna Wintour, Mario Testino, KARL LAGERFELD, and Tory Burch. And people who work in the closets a...more
This vibrant, colorful book is sure to appeal to teens no matter what their interest in fashion is. From the eye-catching cover to the subject matter, teens will be attracted to this book whether they are considering a career in the fashion industry or not. Even this reviewer reconsidered her career choice while reading this book. The handbook covers all facets of the fashion industry including designers, editors, stylists, models, makeup artists, and photographers each with its own chapter. Eac...more
I absolutely adore this book! It's a must-read for anyone aspiring to have a career in the fashion industry. However, if you do not want to be in the fashion industry this book will be very boring. You would only find the images the most fascinating part. Whereas, a fashion lover would drink up the wonderful little life segments of famed designers, editors, and models! I loved how the book was stylized like a magazine. The worst part of the book was that it couldn't be bigger and feature more na...more
This books really good for those who want to gain more knowledge about the field of fashion. I personally enjoyed reading about my favorite designers/photographers experience on getting where they are today.

This book was the only thing I wanted for my thirteenth birthday, and with all my wishes to the fashion gods I got it! It became my bible, I carried it everywhere with me, always finding something new to drool over. As a hope-to-be fashion designer and stylist this book gave me everything I needed to know. Where ever your personal interest in the fashion industry may lie this book has everything you need to know about it. From editing to photography this book has personal interviews with people...more
A really great comprehensive guide of how you can get a start in the fashion industry. They give great advice straight from the source which is great. And as a reader of Teen vogue it's great to see them putting stuff like this out :)

Like many teen girls, the idea of a career in the fashion industry really intrigued me, so when a friend bought this book I was eager to borrow it. A part of me thought it would be a bit of a candyfloss book, some pretty pictures and all, but not much solid useful career advice.
Boy, was I wrong!
My main focus was the editors pages, which were brilliant. They showed that their career paths weren't easy. You had to do some boring schlepping around, and at high levels the workload was insane. It's...more
Oh my goodness, I love this book so much!! It features interviews from some of the top professionals of the fashion industry, including designers, magazine editors, hairstylists, and make-up artists. For anyone interested in fashion, their stories about past experiences in the industry and how they got their respective starts are both fascinating and informative. Much of their advice on how to get a job in fashion can be applied to any career path. The handbook is designed graphically just like...more
This book gets a four on entertainment value, but maybe only a three on actual real-world usefulness on advising--outside a lot of very general tips-- how a fashion-savvy teen can crack into the business of high fashion. What it does do very well is highlight all the people who serve as the different pieces of the puzzle behind photo shoots and shows, from models to photographers, fashion editors and interns, and makeup artists. For any teen who enjoys fashion this book is a lot of fun, with gre...more
not as bad as i thought it would be
Almost like a history of all fashion in one little book, with a few of my favorite designers.
This book offers lots of good advice about the fashion world.

This was so helpful, I knew I wanted to do something with TeenVogue but I wasn't exactly sure, this opened my eyes up to more options than I thought there really was just for a magazine. Now that I know what I really want to aim for, I can start working on it now, and hope to get noticed, if not then I will try to be an intern and keep going until I realize I have failed, then I know this isn't the job for me and I will move on.
Such a great, informative book. Seriously, I don't think they could have done a better job. I loved all the pictures in this book as well. I even used one of the runway pictures as inspiration for a halloween costume that I made this year. If you are thinking about getting into the fashion industry wether it's making clothes, being a photographer, or being an editor at a magazine then I definitely recommend you read this book.
This book was definitely handy for me. I have always wanted to work in the fashion business, but I still don't know what I should study and stuff like that. Once I got this book, I was so relieved. It shows interviews and tips from the industry masters - from editors, photographers, designers, make-up artists and stylists.
You should definitely get this book if you're interested in getting a job in the fashion industry.
Although insights from the designers were fascinating, the advice given both by them and the book itself were often rather vague. Also I found that certain points were repeated several times as if to fill up space, which wasn't really necessary. I think it would have been improved with points more sharply honed, such as exactly what constitutes as a good, strong portfolio, and what one can expect as an intern.
I am so into fashion and want to be in the industry when I am older! This book was os helpful because it gave tips for breaking into the industry and advice from famous designers. They had interviews from people like Marc Jacobs, Stella Mcartney, Phillip Lim, and more! It was amazing to learn their stories and advice for young fashionistas who want to pursue their career in fashion! It was very inspiring!

I found this book absolutely wonderful. This book is above and beyond what you would expected from Teen Vogue. thus book is a must-have with useful information, uplifting words, and even the bare truth. I really enjoyed this book. I was fortunate enough to obtain a copy from my local library and I must say that some books are meant to be read. This book is a wonderful book for young women. I enjoyed it
This book was great. I purchased this book when I was going through a phase. I was determined to become a fashion designer. This book definitely gave me a great insight into the world of fashion and the various jobs the industry has. Now that I've passed that phase and pursuing career related to my graphic communication degree, I can see my self referencing the "interns guide" section...
I didn't buy this book because I want to work in the fashion industry. I'm just interested in it.
The book is so colorful and fun to read. I enjoy the interviews most. Mostly I just open it and I can't put it down because there's always another thing I have to look at.
Amazing! Anyone who wants a career in fashion should read this book! Covers everything from interning, editing, makeup, styling, and photography. Made me want to go back in time and start over with a career in fashion.
Rose Kuan
A really great guide to people who is going to be working in the fashion industry as their career,It taught alot of things about how the actual fashion industry works, how to become a designer, assistant, photographer....
This book is such a great resource for anyone intersted in any branch of the industry. Or just a great read for anyone intersted in fashion....the interviews and photos are great. All-in-all this was a great read!!
Brittany Solarz
A brilliant hand book to see where and how others got in to the fashion industry and gives a better insight into their line of work. I wouldn't necessarily say guide though.
Wonderful book, the perfect guide to careers in fashion...with great layouts and interviews from the likes of designers, editors et cetera. A total re-read!
This book is perfect for anyone who wants a job in fashion or is curruently working in fashion . I think anyone whos in to fashion has to own this book .
