I just received your book Fashion for Profit. I am astonished at the information contained in the book. Never has there been one print publication that gives you the meat and potatoes on the fashion business. Yes, I have a task ahead of me but with this knowledge I now how to get the job done. Excellent, by far the best tool for a new or experienced designer who wants to establish their own brand! Ruth --Ruth L Bobo
My business partner and I read your book from cover to cover and it is one of the reasons we have had success with our product. As our business grew, chapters that meant little when we first began, then took on whole new meanings and we are still consulting your book. --Carla O'Brien FORTUNE TEE
