Eunice Olumide talks to us about her first book, How to Get Into Fashion. With stunning photographs and behind-the-scenes knowledge of someone who’s been there and done it, this is an essential guide to the industry. Eunice was signed to the catwalk when she was just 16. Since then she has worked all over the world for designers including Mulberry, Alexander McQueen, Christopher Kane and Harris Tweed, as well as collaborating with the National Museum of Scotland and the V&A. Along the way, she has championed diversity in her industry and stood up for ethical fashion.

This book is a breath of fresh air; essential, engaging and full of good advice” – Elinor Perry-Smith, Associate Editor, SEEN London
