FJ Book Club in Conversation with Giulia Mensitieri

ONLY NOW

A webinar you can actually look forward to.

Fashion Journal is partnering with Melbourne Fashion Festival and Melbourne University Press for a very special book club event, inviting author Giulia Mensitieri for a live Q&A to discuss The Most Beautiful Job in the World.

Boldly declared by one of our editors as “the best fashion book I have ever read”, The Most Beautiful Job in the World takes a piercing look at the inner workings of the luxury fashion industry. It exposes a lived reality that many within the fold already know: the greater the prestige, the lower the pay.

“[It] is a sort of smokescreen for what is a mass of low-income workers with unstable jobs,” Giulia writes. And while her statement pertains to the Parisian luxury sector, it could comfortably be transposed to the wider industry.

Giulia’s book is perhaps so enthralling because it offers a perspective on the fashion industry rarely, if ever, heard. She is an industry outsider and has a doctorate in social anthropology and ethnology, lending her the capacity to notice telling details that many within the industry will often accept unquestioned. She’s also managed to infiltrate the industry at the highest level – not an easy task, given luxury fashion turns on exclusivity.

It shows that exploitation isn’t just confined to sweatshops or the sexual harassment of models. For anyone already working or interested in entering the industry, it is a necessary read.

Pick up a copy here then join us next month, as we chat with Giulia about perceptions versus reality within the fashion industry. You can also submit any questions you might have for Giulia below.

The webinar will take place at 6.30pm on Thursday October 22. Attendance is limited to 100 people, so if you want to take part in this event, please get in quick!
