I've read this book and the moment I opened it, I couldn't put it down! (I lost weight reading this book) Not only does the author cover how to break into the industry, she covers the basic ways to create clothing. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!

I purchased this book on amazon.com at a very reasonable price and was very pleased with my purchase. For under $20 this book provided me with the information I was looking for. I recommend it to anyone, especially students interested in majoring in Fashion Design in college. This book explains the basics of what majoring in Fashion Design requires, and goes into describing the what, when, where, and why of what being a Fashion student involves. I really enjoyed reading this book and learned a lot!

After a serious college business education and a few years in the workforce, I made a courageous decision to enter fashion school. The best decision I've made, but like everyone else I sometimes stress out over what I've gotten myself into. Sue Jenkyn's book is always on my cofee table because it calms me down by clarifying in simple terms what I'm studying and why. This book offers an opportunity to step back and look at the big picture of fashion today.

This book offers a taste of everything - she has a wonderful chart of the fashion calendar and another of the fashion cycle. The info in this book incorporates vital lessons from maybe 10 expensive textbooks I own and have studied. The pictures taken of students in fashion school and sectors of the industry are my favorite. Until you are in fashion school or the industry, this book is the best way for you to see what happens behind closed doors. The more I learn in fashion school, the more familiar and enlightening this book becomes.

Then read this book first!

Sue Jenkyn Jones provides a good end-to-end overview of the Fashion Design Business. From this book, you will get an good idea of what talents and requirements are needed to be a Fashion Designer. Covered in this book are the business aspects, fashion cycles, textiles, manufacturing, sketching, patternmaking, CAD for designers, colors, sewing, and much MUCH more.

Each topic is explored enough to get slughtly further than the basic concept but not thoroughly covered. I do not think it is possible to completely explore everything on Fashion Design in one book. It is a great introduction to see if it something suitable for yourself or if you are seeking out an overview of the design business. The book is generously packed with graphical examples, sketches, charts, and runway photos.

preferably theirs. This book reveals very little about fashion design or the buisness. It is full of a lot of general information much like you would find in one of those late night tv, or print ads, telling you that you may have what it takes to "become a serious artist." Because of course then you are interested and will pay them money. This book works in much the same way. It is a teaser published by Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. Now had they given me this book, say. . . at my orientation, i probably would have appreciated it. However I was rather disappointed when I realized that I had just paid $30 at SFMOMA for an advertisement from CSM.
