I purchased a copy of The Guide for a friend who was thinking about getting into the business, however I started reading through the guide and found that even for someone like myself, that has been a fashion stylist for many years, the information it contained was invaluable! I look at the Guide as a refresher course that all of us in the business need once in awhile. I feel that I have renewed enthusiasm for my work.
