Innovative approach, current perspective.


The Fashion Game, 1e presents a new, relevant voice in fashion merchandising. This innovative text follows a unique “fashion in four” approach, which stresses the relationships among the various facets of fashion merchandising. This groundbreaking approach helps students understand how the fashion world functions and how fashion professionals pursue their careers. While many older texts have lost touch with current technologies, issues, and trends, Kendall offers keen insight into today’s important issues, including social media, privacy concerns, counterfeit products, sweatshops, and sustainability, in addition to covering basic fashion fundamentals. The text’s straightforward approach and current insight will make it a favorite of both students and instructors.
