Passion For Fashion: Careers In Style
Jeanne Beker

Tundra Books

Fashion Television’s Jeanne Beker has created Passion for Fashion: Careers in Style (Tundra Books), a lively and informative guide to careers in the world of fashion. She goes beyond the designers and models to describe all the key players in the world of fashion, including stylists, hair and makeup professionals, dressers, fashion magazine writers, editors, and publishers, and more. For each career she describes what the person does and the qualities and skills needed to succeed. This is at once a career guide and a behind-the-scenes look at how the world of fashion works. Revealing and inspiring, this guide will give young people a realistic, insider’s perspective on what Beker calls a “whole world of beautiful possibilities.” Illustrated by Nathalie Dion. (Ages 10m+) mRb
