(no dust jacket, but fitted with a custom-cut mylar cover) [generally a good solid book, with a bit of wear to the extremities; one-time owner's ink notation on ffep]. The author had quite a resume: "newspaper reporter, saleswoman, lecturer, advertising copywriter, advertising and sales director, president of her own importing company, and associate editor in charge of departments of the Ladies' Home Journal." Although she tailors (ha ha) her commentary towards the fashion industry, she also has much to say (based on her own experiences) about "women in business and of the opportunities and handicaps which business holds for women today." The book's table of contents is a paradise of name-dropping, highlighting the names of many prominent women in the fashion business of the day (some interviewed, some offering tips, some simply held up as examples): Dorothy Shaver, Virginia Hammill, Marjory Howard, Edna Woolman Chase, Margot de Bruyn Kops, Sally Victor, Frederika Fox, Elizabeth Arden, Helena Rubinstein, Grace Cornell, Helen Bishop, Tobé, Gladys Rohde, June Hamilton Rhodes, Sarah Pennoyer, Marion Taylor, Hazel Rawson Cades, Virginia Pope, Carmel White Snow, Ruth McKinlay, Helen Cole, Cora Scovil, Elsa Conner, and Julia Coburn. (Please inquire if you want to know how much space is actually devoted to any one of these ladies.)
