Careers in Fashion & Textiles

This is the original Word file for the Careers in Fashion & Textiles PDF resource that has previously been given away for free.

Why buy the full Word version of this resource?
The Word version allows you to edit the resource and gives you access to the original Jpeg images. There are over 80 jpeg images although note that some are individual images that have been combined to make a montage of images so some images are repeated (with approximately 60 of the images being individual photos and 20 images being montages).

The resource consists of 34 A4 pages which are exactly the same as the free PDF. There are also additional pages which are not in the PDF resource with individual copies of all of the images used in the document with a very brief description of what each image is.
