How to have a Stylish Career
The question that Kirstie Clements, former editor-in-chief of Vogue, bestselling author of The Vogue Factor, columnist and judge on Australia’s Next Top Model, has most often been asked in her career at the pinnacle of fashion is ‘How do I get my dream job?’.
Entry into the so-called glamour industries has always been highly competitive but never more so than now – and you may only have one shot at getting your foot in the door. However, the skills that are necessary for success haven’t changed.
In Impressive, How to Have a Stylish Career, Kirstie, and a dazzling array of industry insiders, from top executives to leading fashion designers, give their expert opinions on how to get the job you want, get noticed and get ahead, and handle things in style – at work, and everywhere else in life!
Impressive delivers straight forward and relevant fashion, style and grooming advice to suit any budget, and is packed with insider information to help you look the part and present like a professional. This book covers off all the basics: the importance of a degree, how to prepare for a job interview and how to work your way to the top. Impressive tackles the subject of manners, etiquette and work ethics and delivers more than a few pertinent career do’s and don’ts, all recommended by leading professionals. Think of it as a must have guide book, one which will put you far ahead of the fashion pack.
"An insider's account of how to break into the fashion industry."
Kirstie can appreciate an idea or a see a spark in a person before the rest of the world can. In my case, she was one of the first real supporters of my independent magazine, Inprint, and a huge collaborator on that. She has been my agony aunt, mentor and friend, it has been a very well rounded and amazing experience.
