Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7 Up—This book will have a lot of teen appeal with its trendy fashions created by veteran designers and newcomers alike. Legendary names such as Karl Lagerfeld are intermixed with the latest fashion moguls to give readers advice about how to plan for a career in the industry. Future-minded readers will learn about design, modeling, styling, and photography through interviews, pictures, and lively layouts of tips and photos. "Essential Items of the Pros" are included at the end of each section. The exceptional photos and spreads of questions and answers are attractive and fun to look at, but at times the bold colors and busyness overwhelm the solid text. Regardless, young people considering a career in the business will find plenty of encouragement and useful tips. The fashions and ideas are up-to-date, including Michelle Obama's nontraditional sleeveless dresses described as "bringing the First Lady into the modern era, in which glamour is defined by Hollywood and the red carpet rather than protocol and tradition." Even if teens only look at the pictures and boxes of text, they are sure to learn plenty.—Karen Alexander, Lake Fenton High School, Linden, MI

This book is a fun read for a long plane flight or a long road trip. But almost all of the suggestions are just a brush on the surface. Read it to get an idea or to get you excited about a career choice, but it doesn't give you much to work with to get you in the right direction. The examples stories and interviews in the book are fun to read. And the pictures are very eye candy (just like Teen Vogue Magazine). For example one of the designers in the book said that you should try to get an internship to get a good idea of the fashion business....well, duhhh...everyone knows that. Plus, he doesn't tell you how to find the internship, how to get an interview for the internship, what you should do on the interview (how to answer the interview questions, what to wear, what designers are looking for in an intern, etc... so there are a lot of unanswered questions that the book left out. After reading this book, I felt that I was still lost and I had to dig into other sources (very hard to find) to uncover more tips and secrets of the trade.

This book is still a fun read. And for a teen or young adult is a great book to own. The background information that they give you on the established designers are good to know. It gives one hope knowing that most of these designers started out doing something else and majored in something else in college. It just tells you that passion drives everything.
So this is still a great book to own. And if you are thinking about a career in fashion, an extremely cut throat and competitive industry, you need to read everything that you can get your hands on. Lots of great pictures to look at. Very eye candy.

This is honestly way better than I expected. There are quotes and interviews with people from literally every part of the fashion industry from makeup artists, to models, to editors. I have never gotten this much honest information anywhere else about 'the real world'. Most of the advice is the same; put your resume out there and intern as much as possible. But learning what famous people like Marc Jacobs did to get started is truly inspirational. I especially loved the fact that the majority of the people in the book had majored something else, then just sort of fell into fashion. It's nice to know that there isn't one set way. Parsons is NOT the only way to get your name out there in the fashion world. I would recommend this book to anyone who has even thought about a career in beauty or fashion.

My 14 year old daughter LOVES this book. She gave one to her best friend as a gift and she also loved it. Loads of pictures and interesting info. She picks it up often and has taken it with us on trips. It's been fun and was well worth buying!

This book is an absolutely incredible resource for anyone already in the fashion industry--or trying to break into it. It has interviews and career tips from industry greats (Anna Wintour), the biggest designers (Karl Lagerfeld, Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Alexander Wang, Tory Burch, Phillip Lim, Proenza Schouler, Thakoon), amazing photographers (Mario Testino, Bruce Weber, Patrick Demarchelier, Arthur Elgort), and even models like Chanel Iman. Seriously a MUST-HAVE.

I totally love this book. I haven't read it in its entirety, but I must say that I'm going to reread it. This book gives profound information and advice from the supreme people in Fashion, down to those who run errands and go get starbucks. This book has inspired me and so many ways, and I wanna thank everyone who has helped put this book together, because you have given me greater insight into my career/future.. :)

Purchased this book for my daughter who is a few months shy of being a teen. She has told us for two years she wants to be a fashion designer. This book has photographers, designers, colleges-just a great resource of who's who in the fashion industry and how to get started. She carries it around like a fashion bible..great buy.

When I open the book up for the first time it was like awwwwwww gold shining back at my face. I encourage others who love to be apart of fashion by being a designer, model, sales rep, or anything else to buy them a book for themselves. All fellow future fashion head should have The Teen Vogue Handbook in their libraries or bookcase. This book was worth my money and time.

Made a perfect Christmas gift for teenage grandaughter. Now she thinks Grandma is hip. I reviewed the contents prior to giving it to her and I must say I was impressed with the quality and the content. It gave factual advice to anyone interested in getting into the fashion industry.
