Isobel Leventhorpe takes a look at Danielle Griffiths 'Stylist’s Fashion Handbook' and gives her opinion on it.

Danielle Griffith's recent handbook for fashion stylists is a must-buy for anyone looking to break into that industry!


A step-­by-­step insider guide to working as a fashion stylist. The focus is on ‘how to be a stylist’ rather than ‘how to style’, and this book answers all the questions a young stylist would ever need to know.


The book has absolutely EVERYTHING covered, from how to bag an internship, building your portfolio, testing photos before shoots, how to prepare for shoots, building contacts, to working with PRs. Danielle has covered everything any budding young stylist would want and need to know. It’s interesting to read as an outsider too, with behind ­the ­scenes shots and interviews key industry professionals and top stylists.
