The author offers guidance, pointing readers towards a fulfilling career in a competitive and complex industry. The range of pertinent topics covered include working in the industry as a fashion designer, business planning, selling your brand, networking, managing your manufacturer, using social media, emotional wellbeing and eco fashion. Over the past few weeks, a few people have reached out to us about the Fashion Designer’s Resource Book, with specific questions about the fashion industry, sustainability and everything else that the book covers. Contact us here for more information regarding availability, rates and more if you would like to grab a slot.

I am offering 10 Skype sessions over the next few weeks of August for emerging designers and creatives. Over the past few weeks, a few people have reached out to me about my book (@FDRbook), with specific questions about the fashion industry, sustainability and everything else that my book covers. Use the ‘Contact Us’ tab for more information regarding availability, rates and more if you would like to grab a slot. I can’t offer more than 10 as I don’t have the time to give quality support if I do, but I look forward to talking with the ten who snap them up. Contact Us through here or the @FDRBook profile for more information. Thank you to my new readers too especially for your recent lovely tags of my book.
